LifeGroups are the life blood of Eagles Nest Church. They are our small groups of approximately 15 people that meet once a month to share their lives, support each other and study biblical truths in a relaxed environment. Not only will you make friends, but you’ll be able to ask the hard questions about Christianity and know you’re accepted. It’s a place to love and be loved, and be challenged by others at different points in their faith journey. LifeGroups generally meet at the leader’s home, each located in different areas of town.

Get plugged in today! Contact our LifeGroups ministry team at lifegroups@eaglesnestchurch.org
