Life Groups

Sundays during the school year from 6:30 to 8:00PM

Life Groups are for high school students. Groups consist of 8-10 students divided by grade and gender with 2 adult leaders and meet in homes. We believe that authentic community can be formed through the practices of eating together, reading scripture, praying for one another, serving together, and sharing fun experiences together.

Side-by-side groups are short-term Bible Study and discipleship groups built around student schedules. They are available to groups of 2-4 students and are designed to be 2-6 weeks long depending on the study.

Group interests range from studies on the Gospels of John or Mark, Bible journaling, learning to tell your faith story, discovering your identity in christ, and more.

Leadership Opportunities

Side by Side groups are short-term discipleship groups that are built around student and family schedules.
