LIFE Groups are designed to help students build relationships, grow in their faith, and experience genuine Christian community. Groups begin in October and meet consistently through April. LIFE Groups are a key part of our night and important for spiritual growth of our students. YOUTH service runs from 7:00-8:15pm on Wednesday nights.

• Every LIFE Group is matched with same-sex adult leaders.
