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.

    Women Discovering

    “Discovering”: Finding unexpectedly, or in the course of a search. 

     

    This group is designed for women travelling hard roads and asking hard questions. This could be anything from receiving life-shattering news to wondering what the next step is for you. Our goal is to make space to know and to be known in community with each other, to bring our beauty and our brokenness to light, and to discover ourselves and God more deeply as we journey together. Our time will be loosely structured around the book “When the Heart Waits” by Sue Monk Kidd.


    Availability - Room for 6!

  • Megan Boehm and Devin Overstreet- St. Louis Park

    Contact Group at  boeh0167@gmail.com


    This group is geared toward young couples and singles,  (before children), hanging out on Wednesday evenings. Their topics are loosely defined; sometimes they might go through a fascinatingly intellectual study, play Apples to Apples, or possibly volunteer somewhere. They may even rescue cats stuck in trees, if the occasion calls for it; the possibilities are endless. In the end, the focus is Christ centered fellowship and the hope is that people feel safe to share and encouraged to grow."
