HOW CAN I GET CONNECTED
We believe that "church" is not only what we do during our weekend. Church is also what happens among the people; together we ARE the Church! WE are the family of God! You can connect through serving with your time or joining a life group. Life Groups are an opportunity to find your place in the family. It’s a chance to get to know others, learn names, share stories and even enjoy a meal together each month in your Life Group meetings.
