Lenten Life Groups
six choices of time/location/leader

Have you been looking for a way to connect with others, or study the Bible, or deepen your faith life? Look no further! During Lent this year, we are focusing on Relentless Joy by reading through the book of Philippians. For those of you who are beginners to the Bible, the book of Philippians is super short and an easy read. For those of you looking for more, don’t worry— it was written by Paul and is chock full of great stuff, including a lot of JOY! - SIGN UP HERE -
