Life Groups

Community of Grace is not a church with groups, it’s a church made of groups.

Life Groups have one, simple purpose: to connect people together to grow in their relationship with Jesus. We believe God created us to live in relationship, to encourage and strengthen each other in life. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. Join a Life Group today; don't do life alone!
