What is a LIFE Group?

Life Groups are weekly, monthly or regular gatherings where people gather and study a particular topic.


What are the topics?

Topics can range from anything from a book of the Bible to a particular aspect of life; parenting or marriage for example.


How do I find a Life Group?

Life Groups are almost always going on. And if there isn't one currently meeting, there is likely one to start. To get involved with a Life Group simply email our Life Group Director, Jen Vrooman, at jen@greatlakeschurch.net and we will get you the info you need.
