---Specialty Life Groups


Our Vision

In addition to our Life Groups, we have many specialty groups called Specialty Life Groups. These seasonal classes and groups have a specific topic/emphasis and seek to incorporate Life Group DNA. Our Specialty Life Groups are open to everyone and are offered on a variety of days, places, and times. All provide an opportunity to help you deepen your understanding of God and your ability to walk with Him so you can more effectively love and serve others.
