Life Groups Summer 2024

As believers, we are designed for fellowship and connection with one another and Life Groups provide that opportunity in a smaller setting. Life Groups meet on a semester basis (spring, summer, fall). Life Groups range from bible studies, dinner gatherings, leisure activities, and more. If you are interested in joining a Life Group, please contact the leader listed for that group.

If you have a question about a Life Group or if you are interested in leading a group, please contact Body Life Coordinator Kyndal Jacoby at
