To make a difference in lives by creating an environment that connects people so meaningfully that it changes the quality of life. Each Life Group cycle offers a variety of group topics/titles to help you progress on your Spiritual Journey. 

These cycles are offered throughout the year, beginning in Oct, Feb and June. We believe that we grow best when we experience the authentic community that exists in a Life Group setting. Remember: we can grow more in circles rather than rows!
