LIFE Groups

God created us to enjoy relationships! We are all born with a deep need to know and be known. God’s design for us has wired us to want vibrant and growing connection with Him and each other, so it’s natural that we grow deeper in our faith and in abundant, joyful living when we live life together. LIFE Groups are a place to learn from God’s Word and each other, and gives us a place to belong.

Living in community in the form of groups has been a longstanding value of Memorial Park Church. We offer two pathways to help you get connected: by starting a LIFE Group or joining a LIFE Group. Our active list of groups changes often, so if we don't already have a group that meets your availability, consider attending a starter group during a Life Group Launch!
