LIFE groups are small group settings where you can grow deeper in your faith and also in your friendships with others. They are casual discussion groups relating to a given topic of study (such as marriage, finances, parenting, biographies, apologetics, and more). The goal is the development of healthy relationships where you can be loved, encouraged, challenged, and motivated for life in Christ.
Most LIFE Groups are held biweekly.

Study - Alpha: Parenting Teenagers Course
It was hard enough when they weren't potty trained and couldn't feed themselves. At least they were cute! they've got hormones, friends, and a car! The transitional years of adoloescence aren't easy, and many baffled parents may start to ask questions like: How can we meet our teenagers' needs? How and where do we set the boundaries? How can we pass on our values to our teenagers? While parenting carries a big cost, it also can bring the highest of rewards: the depth of love a parent feels and the privilege of parenting or caring for 11-18-year-olds with the tools to build healthy relationship with their teenagers while guiding them into adulthood. Drawing on their own experience of bringing up four children and having talked to thousands of parents over the years on their parenting courses, Nicky and Sila Lee bring fresh insights and time-tested values to the task of parenting. The sessions cover: Keeping the End in Mind, Meeting our Teenagers' Needs, Setting Boundaries, Developing Emotional Health and Helping Them Make Good Decisions.
