LIFE means Living In Faith Every day! Our LIFE Groups are small, weekly gatherings where we grow together, learn together, and serve together. Currently, we have groups meeting almost every day of the week, so this is a great place to get connected. LIFE is better with Jesus and the encouragement of others in a LIFE Group!
