WHY DO LIFE GROUPS EXIST?

LIFE GROUPS have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

WHAT ARE LIFE GROUPS?

A Life Group is an intentional gathering of people where you can connect with others on a regular basis who share your interests, who are at a similar stage in life, or who have experience in an area where you would like coaching.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A LIFE GROUP?

It is through doing life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring healing, support and encouragement to our lives—whether we realize we need it or not. Your Life Group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life.

Don't Get This Wrong
The Bible has a lot to say, and a lot to teach us, about the end times. Nonetheless, it remains one of the most avoided and least understood subjects the Bible discusses, even though it's clear that this is information that God wants us to know and understand. In this study, we'll take an in-depth look at the book of Revelation.
