GROW TOGETHER

Life Groups have one purpose: to help people grow together.  We believe that our church must grow larger and smaller at the same time.  In other words, as our church grows larger, we are deeply committed to building deep and meaningful relationships through small, intimate groups of people that connect, care and grow together.


Take a moment to watch the stories of men and women who are growing together U-City Family Church. Then scroll down to find a Life Group that's right for you. You can find groups doing anything from finding financial freedom to Frisbee golfing to mom's support on any day of the week.  Find what's right for you because your life is your group.
