Life Groups

Life Groups are the heart of community, service, burden-bearing, and joy at Christ Church. As you will see below, there are many different kinds of Life Groups to choose, to fit your interests, needs, and time/location.

Life Groups begin the second week of September. Monthly teaching nights, Burgers & Big Ideas, will continue on Thursdays in the fall.
