Life Groups

Find a Group

It’s God’s desire for us to live together in community so that we may grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and others. At fellowship, we have the opportunity for connection through our Life Groups. There are four types of Life Groups here and each has a specific focus to meet your need for spiritual growth and encouragement.


Sign up today! Summer Life Groups begin May 19th!
