Life Groups are the small group ministry here at First Covenant, where we study Scripture, form deep relationships that help us grow in our faith, use our gifts and talents, and take Christ out into our world. It is one of many ways that we generously live out our faith, together. And we have a LOT of fun doing it! There are currently seven Life Groups that meet two or more times per month during the school year, on a wide variety of topics. For more information, contact Erik Carlson ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) ( >more ).
