LIFE GROUPS

The theme song of the TV show Cheers reminds us that, “Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name.”

It’s true. We’re wired for relationships. We naturally seek to belong, to be known, to go where everybody knows our name. That’s what Life Groups are about. They’re the primary way we live out our vision of being an authentic community.

Groups of 5-20 people gather on a regular basis to have fun, care for each other, grow in their understanding of God, and serve their communities together. Our 2022 Summer season runs from June thru August. Groups below are in-person unless noted.

  • They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes, and shared their meals together. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. (Acts 2:46-47)
