Life Groups

A Family that Grows Together: Life groups are smaller communities where we spend time together.

Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God.  - Colossians 3:16
