Life Groups

Life Groups meet in different places, from homes to the church office, and at different times through the week. These are groups formed from the interests and needs that others may have in common. These groups can be highly creative and varied. Each group may center on a certain topic or a similar interest. Discipleship and relationships evolve and are nurtured from each group.

We run life group semesters every 12 weeks.  If you wish to be involved please call the church office 804-353-2997 or sign up here.


Our Mom’s Group meet once a month on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00pm at Cheryl and Stephen Hollifield’s home.  The group will be discussing the book,  “Desperate: Hope for the mom who needs to breathe” by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson (book is avialable from Amazon, Kindle or Dayspring for about $10.00).  The desire is for this to be a mom’s only event without children.  Nursing babies are welcome.  To find out more information please call the church office or email for details and to signup.


Our professionals group meet every Wednesday.  Every other Wednesdays we have a co-ed session meeting; on the alternate  Wednesdays we have men meet in one location and women in another.  Please call our church office for details 804-353-2997.
