Life is meant to be lived in community and High School Life Groups are an opportunity for our students to study God’s Word and live out deep and meaningful friendships. Groups are made up of 7 or more students of the same gender and grade and one or two of our amazing and screened adult leaders. We meet on campus, in locations organized by grade.

Kickoff in the Fall
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life’s biggest questions such as meaning of life, faith, and God in an informal and fun environment. Come during lunch break for snacks, discussion, and a chance to form authentic friendships. The Alpha course is a judgment free environment; it is about conversation and getting to know others who are on a similar path.
