LIFE GROUPS: LIVE IN FAITH EVERYDAY
L.I.F.E. Group is a ministry here at Good Shepherd. L.I.F.E. is an acronym for our mission statement, which is to, “live in faith everyday.” We feel L.I.F.E. Groups are so important for the body of Christ that it is our vision everyone be involved with a L.I.F.E. Group.
Life Groups are meeting now. This is a great time to join a group or even start a new one. If you are interested in joining a group or hosting one of your own, please contact our L.I.F.E. Group Ministry Director Zac Schwartz firstname.lastname@example.org.
