This area of ministry is all about connecting with one another!


The mission of Connect Groups is to facilitate the connection of people who attend Word of Life Church with each other and the Word of God. Groups are a relational “vehicle” for spiritual growth. People can connect with others that are in the same stages of life as they are: Young Adults, Married with kids, Boomers, Seniors...etc. For more information on group meeting times please click here and fill out the form to have more information.


Believers in Jesus were never meant to go through life alone. This area of ministry brings strength to our lives by connecting with one another.
