Becoming Groups serve as a place for our church body to gather outside of our normal Sunday and Tuesday services to seek the Lord–deepening our walk–and to connect deeply with one another.
All of our groups gather to discuss the content of the previous Sunday’s sermon. Groups will commit over the course of three months to meeting in various locations throughout the city.
We have several types of groups available, including:
Men’s Groups | Women’s Groups | Married Groups | Single Moms Group | New Believer’s Group
Adult Groups are mixed groups of men and women. Adult Groups in Portage Park and Albany Park are open to 30s + 40s. The Adult Group in Rogers Park is open to those age 20 and up.
Young Adult Groups are for college aged and young professionals in their 20s.
