"Life with God, Together"

Life Groups are an ideal starting point for people seeking a regular rhythm of community life.  Spiritual friendships are fostered through shared meals, prayer, sharing, and Scripture reflection.  Life Groups aim to integrate Soul, Community, and Mission as vital expression of “life with God.”  Members are encouraged to participate in Life Group Rhythms.  

For a detailed listing of current life groups, see below and contact the group via e-mail to join a particular group or for more information . For general questions about groups, please contact us at groups@accesslive.org
