A Life Group is a relational group of 8-30 people that gathers regularly for the purpose of encouraging one another to mature as followers of Jesus.
Life Group meetings have a relaxed, come-as-you-are atmosphere. They are open to anyone to participate, regardless of spiritual background or experience. While there is no commitment required to participate in a Life Group, group members are encouraged to attend regularly and to participate intentionally so that they can fully experience a Life Group community.
Life Group enrollment is coordinated by church staff and is open year-round.
We are a co-ed group that welcomes anyone to participate, including parents with children as CHILDCARE WILL BE AVAILABLE during all large group meetings. All meetings will take place at the church building after Sunday service.
Leaders of this Group: Constance Ervins, Erin Kim, Jacqueline Sugihara, and Michael Sugihara
