Life Groups

LIFE GROUPS

Life Groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationships with others, and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. We believe circles are better than rows.

Our Life Groups have three sessions throughout the year.

  • FALL – September thru November

  • WINTER – January thru May

  • SUMMER – June thru August

In the search area below, you can search by different criteria. If you click on the group, there is additional information, including how to contact the group leader directly.

If you click “I’M INTERESTED” and fill out the form, the group leader will receive your information. Please note inquiries go to group hosts who are volunteers. If you do not hear back within 48 hours, please contact [email protected].

LOCATION: Radiant Church Room 111 LEADERS: Shawn Hauskins & Jerry Hofer [email protected] GriefShare is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Over 13 weeks, you’ll find relief and comfort as you learn what to expect in the days ahead and how to navigate your personal grief process. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way. Group participants can receive a workbook for $20 to take home filled with valuable exercises for navigating their personal grieving process. This group will start February 6.
