What is a Life Group?

At First Denton we value meaningful community and life-giving truth. Our Sunday morning Life Groups are designed with those values in mind. You will have the opportunity to join together with others who are in a similar life stage and have a focused discussion driven by a biblical text. If you consider First Denton your church home, we would hope that you make every effort to be involved in a Life Group. No matter which service you attend, there is an opportunity before or after to be a part of meaningful community.
