We strongly encourage you to commit to only one group in order to maximize your experience. This allows you to be able to build friendship and connect more deeply with those in your LifeGroup.

With over 50 LifeGroups each semester, you’ll have no problem finding a LifeGroup that meets on a day and at a time you can commit to.

While each LifeGroup looks different based on the passions and interests of its leader, a typical LifeGroup might begin with food, mingling, and an activity before transitioning into a discussion where everyone will have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts, and close with meaningful prayer.
