Life Groups

“Let everyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who wishes take the water of life as a gift.” -Revelation 22:17b

For fall: October 20th through November 8th

Life Group is a ministry to build trust, grow in faith, and deepen our relationships with Jesus and others. Groups vary in their time and place based on what works well for you and your group, and this time around we’ll be having discussions on race inspired by Emmanual Acho’s video series, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.” Our goal is to have open discussion where all voices can be heard and new connections are made. You can join in at any time, so let us know if you are interested by emailing office@woodlakechurch.org!
