Lifegroups-Important Connection

A group for families with young kids that discuss the Bible and how it applies to their lives.

Where Real Connection & Growth Take Place

Why Do You Need A Group?

You’re busy. Life can be crazy. You may feel disconnected or lonely. Lifegroups are a place to take a break from those busy demands of crazy, everyday life. They are a place to connect with friends, laugh, and serve together. The goal in these groups is to love Jesus, each other, and to help others find and follow Jesus. Love yourself enough to set yourself up for success, get connected in a Lifegroup!

Meet Erin and Nick who are connected in one of our Sunday night Lifegroups:

Where Do You Start?

Here are some next steps for you. Start at #1 or choose your own path. Contact Sarah O’Sullivan, Executive Pastor if you have any questions.

Step 1: Food & Facts

If you’re new, your first step is to stop in at a Food & Facts. These occur once a month and are immediately following Sunday 11 am services. They are short (30 minutes max), a casual meet-up with snacks so you can get a clear vision of who our church is, our heart, mission statement, and what we believe. Next Food & Facts will be Sunday, 12/6 at 12:15 pm. Head to the Next Steps area in the lobby. No need to sign up, just stop in.

Step 2: Food & Friends

If you’re new, your next step after checking out a Food & Facts is to attend Food & Friends. It’s a casual lunch from 12:30-2 pm, and gives us a chance to chat, answer questions, and you can meet the staff. Food & Friends occurs quarterly, please use the button below to register for the next one on Sunday, January 31, 2021. Childcare will be provided at no cost, but you’ll need to register.
