Summer LIFEgroups

Our Summer LIFEgroups   

Here's a list of our summer groups. Summer LIFEgroups will meet 4 times between the beginning of summer through July (in most cases). So, it's a short-term commitment! (Each group will arrange those dates differently, based largely on the availability of the people who sign up.)

Many of our summer groups will have discussions centered around our summer curriculum, "Proof of Life: Life in the Presence of Christ." Each session will feature a study of the New Testament book of 1 John where group members will discover that there are certain proofs we can use to determine if we are fully alive spiritually. There's no reason to settle for anything less than what God has in mind for us and this study will guide you into what that is! Groups will be doing the Proof of Life study unless indicated otherwise in the "group details" section. 

This summer we've got a bunch of groups that are really mixing it up, doing some really creative and fun things to help build friendships while being challenged in your faith. So check out the list below and feel free to email the leader directly. For more information about groups in general, or some personal assistance in finding the right group for you, email Lyle Castellaw.
