Our heart for you is that you will get connected to a group of people who will help lead you toward a stronger relationship with God and others. After all, Jesus said, the two greatest commandments are to LOVE GOD and LOVE PEOPLE!  Joining a group may prove to be one of the most life changing decisions you will ever make. We believe this so strongly that one of our core values is to “shepherd people towards life change”.

Find Your Place

Each week, hundreds of people meet in small groups throughout North County to study God's word, pray, and live life together. If you're ready to find your place within the large weekend crowd, there are a variety of groups to choose from. Take a look at our LIFEgroups below!
