At the Donelson Family, we believe that Life Groups are the heartbeat of our community. Whether it's meeting in homes, at a coffee shop, or on-campus, we have a variety of Life Groups to fit your schedule & needs. 

Meeting in community matters. And, having a group of people to walk through life with is important. Let us help you get involved in a Life Group!

It is our vision to offer Life Groups meeting together each day of the week. Please pray about starting a Life Group & getting together with others to know & grow in Jesus.

Join us!
