LEAD A LIFE GROUP

At City Church we truly believe that life change happens in the context of relationships, and one of the biggest ways we do that is through Life Groups. As we grow as a church we want to continue to create room for connection and relationships. That is why we would love to have you lead a group. Our amazing team is here to help train, equip and prepare you to lead. Take a minute and stop by the check-in table to learn about how you can lead a group.

The next life group expos are Sundays, March 3 and 10.
