Life is better when we do it together

Life Groups


 

Our Life Groups help members grow in their relationship with God so that they might fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the gospel beyond the four walls of the church and empowers them to strengthen relationships with others by uniting in fellowship and supporting each other in their Christian walk.

 


Want to lead a Life Group?

LIFE Groups are a vital part of our church and we believe that our faith is strengthened when we gather together in community to fellowship with other believers. If you are interested in becoming a LIFE Group leader, join us August 17th as we encourage, equip, and empower you to be the next leader of a BGC LIFE Group.
