Miss the last round of groups?
Our LifeGroups meet in 8-12 week sessions. We use a trimester system to allow individuals an on and off ramp for small group involvement. We encourage groups to stay together but realize the ebb and flow of life may require a schedule change. The trimester system also meshes with holiday and traditional school schedules, and allows leaders to take a break when necessary. We break for the summer months.

The Krakes understand the awesomeness and difficulties of being a young family and hope to help others in this same stage of life grow closer to Jesus through fellowship, Bible study and service opportunities.
