Life Together Ministries

Life Together Ministries is our small group system for adult discipleship ministries. Life groups offer a way for everyone to get plugged into a smaller community of people to meet regularly or on occasion in Christian fellowship.

Our groups come in all shapes and sizes. Some groups might be set up like a traditional Sunday School class or evening small group, while other groups may meet in creative new ways. There will be something for everyone- so that we can all grow closer to each other in Christian community.

Not sure what group is a good fit for you?
