Join a life group

We want to see you get connected, foster friendships, and grow in your relationship with Jesus by being found within community.


 There is a place for everyone to serve in God’s house. Being a part of a team is a great way to build friendships and join others with the same desire to see the church grow into a place that reflects God’s excellence and creativity. Whether you’re helping direct cars, holding babies, singing on stage, or leading a group during the week, the Living Word team is what helps bring our values to life on a Sunday and throughout the week.
So join the TEAM!
