A powerful expression of biblical community.
This is a setting in which people connect with a small group of friends who are mutually committed to caring for one another, growing in their faith, and impacting others for the cause of Christ. We invite you to find a group of friends that live near you so you can join them in “sharing life together.”
Our LifeGroups are a powerful way to do life TOGETHER. We were designed for relationship. So, grab some friends/make some friends and lets to this together!!
If you have any questions, please email Rick Hunter: firstname.lastname@example.org.

5 – Read Ephesians 1:22-23. As a part of the church, we come under the Lordship of Jesus. Why is that comforting in today’s world?
Living Out: How do I obey?
1 – Someone read this out loud: Earnestly believe that God EXISTS, that I MATTER to him, and that he has the POWER to help me recover.
