Life Groups

FALL SEMESTER

September 15 – November 16

Life Groups reflect what the church is meant to be. As we follow the teachings of Jesus, we become more like him; fellowshipping with believers, growing in grace and truth, and caring for prodigals and outcasts.

Circles are better than rows.

If you have any questions email, Elly Henning, the Life Group Director.

I am a mommy to two beautiful little girls, Tenley (8) and Berkleigh (13mo). I have lived in a few places and one thing I always found to be the hardest was finding like minded, Christian women to share meaningful friendships with. Let's face it, when you have children it makes simple tasks like getting together for coffee with a friend a lot more difficult so it takes a special group of women to care and nurture those friendships! I am looking forward to embracing and uplifting each other and getting to know more about everyone's journey! Whether you are single or married, have children or not let's make this semester of Life Group the absolute best and grow together in our faith!

This group will give us a chance to connect with other working women to grow in our faith, support each other and meet some amazing new people. Yes, joining a Life Group can be scary but it can also be exactly what you are missing!! See you soon 🙂
