It is impossible to overstate the importance of togetherness in a Jesus follower’s life. And that’s exactly what our LifeGroups offer.
We exist to do life together, encouraging each other to live the lives Jesus desires for us to live.
We strive to accomplish this mission in four ways:
Meeting and Studying Together
The only way to know what the life Jesus desires for you to live looks like is by it being revealed through the Word of God. Our goal is not to simply provide information, but to allow what we learn to transform every aspect of our lives.
Community is not something that is simply taken, it is something that grows through mission. When we minister together we want to come together around a mission to serve our community and those in need…together.
Ministering to Each Other
We want to be intentional about accountability. We desire to create environments where transparency is easy and we can provide the tools and encouragement needed to live the lives Jesus desires us to live.
Do Life Together
Enjoy each other. Enjoy each other’s families. Have fun. Be real. And realize, these relationships are special. They are life giving…so enjoy them.
