For a breath of fresh air in your week! Multiple life groups meet in homes, apartments, local restaurants, gyms (even a few at the church building.) Each in its own way provides an opportunity to step from the isolation of anonymous Christianity into an experience of community. You’re welcome to try any out. Newcomers are warmly welcomed. Visiting doesn’t obligate you. And you won’t be asked to participate beyond your comfort level. Some people visit a life group before ever attending a weekend celebration. Groups vary in size from a handful to a size that stretches the meaning of “small.” They meet as often as weekly, as infrequently as monthly; most meet for an hour or two.
Each group has a web entry with pertinent info: where, when, who, what to expect. You are welcome to contact any of the contact people listed for more info, or just to confirm that the group is meeting at the stated time and place.
