we believe REAL life change happens in the context of real relationships. 

LIFEgroups exist for you.


The purpose of LIFEgroups is to create an environment where you can be real with other people.
LIFEgroups are a place where you can grow, connect, and be cared for. LIFEgroups are a place where the meaningful relationships you have been searching for can be found. Don't do life alone!

We invite you to grow and find freedom by connecting with others in a Southridge LIFEgroup.
