“We believe that LIFE change happens best within the context of authentic relationships.”


John 13:34-35 tells us, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Love is expressed in a variety of ways in group life. We express love to another as we serve and care for one another in our group.
