What to Expect
The Christian Life was never meant to be lived alone.
We have been designed to live in community with other Christians. LifeGroups help us develop Christ-centered relationships and “live life together.” LifeGroups typically meet mid-week in homes to discuss and reflect on the sermon, study Scripture and support one another with our faith journey. They help us grow in relationship to God and others.
Our LifeGroups meet in 8-12 week sessions. During each session groups come together to discuss Biblically based topics, enjoy fellowship and pray for one another. We also encourage groups to deepen their relationships through enjoying meals and serving together in our church and in the local community.
Next Session: April 18 - May 23, 2021
August 29 - November 14
January 30 – March 20, 2022
Did you miss this last round of groups?
We're using a trimester system because it allows individuals an obvious on and off ramp for small group involvement. While we encourage groups to stay together, we also realize the ebb and flow of life may require a schedule change. The trimester system also works well with holiday and traditional school schedules, and allows leaders to take a break when necessary.

Young Professionals - Sapinoso/Prasad
Chris Sapinoso is a second generation Filipino American. He came to faith in college while getting his degree in molecular and cellular biology at UC Merced.

Chris enjoys many outdoor activities and also is a brewer and fermentor of beer, wine and kombucha tea. His heart is for community and missional living and hopes you will consider joining this young professionals group as they grow closer to God and each other.
