life groups

Life Groups exist to create space outside of Sundays for authentic relationships and community.  We hope that you find a safe place to know and be known in your beauty and your brokenness.  They meet at different times all through the city so find something that's near you and fits your schedule and jump in.


If you need help finding a group, don't hesitate to ask. 

Email Jane Burg and she'd love to help you find a group.
