Real Life Ministries is where Jesus and real life meet.

Our mission at RLM is to make biblical disciples in relational environments. Life Groups are key relational environments where we meet together each week in homes to build relationships, grow spiritually and do life together. Biblical discipleship and spiritual growth best happen in and through intentional relationships among a smaller group of people. In our life groups, we experience real relationships and learn how to be authentic followers of Christ as we fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

If you are interested in connecting to a Life Group, please visit the kiosk located in the lobby before and after services where our team of volunteers and Life Group Leaders will be happy to assist you!
