life groups

Check out our life groups below and sign up today!

At 828 Church we believe in connecting people to God, people to people, and people to purpose - and Life Group is a fantastic way to do just that!

Connect with God through His Word, connect with people through conversation and discussion topics, and connect with purpose as we walk out the call we have on our lives in community!

We are so excited about what God is doing at 828 Church, and what He will do in our Life Groups this year! The groups will begin mid-September and run through mid-December. This semester for Life Groups we will be offering several Learning to Live groups in addition to our Sermon-Based discussion groups!

828 Sermon-Based Group

828 Sermon-based groups are where we will highlight portions of each Sunday morning message, and take the time to dive deeper as we discuss them together during the week, which will really help bring some of those "take-home truths" home!

Alpha Group

Alpha is an incredible, video-based series that focuses on faith foundations. Each session covers a key element of the Gospel in a way that is easy to follow and leaves space for people to explore their questions about life, faith, and God! Available at South, or Wilmington Young Adults (18-25) this semester.

Growing Kids God's Way Group

Growing Kids God's Way is a class that provides parents hope, encouragement, and practical advice in the adventure of raising children by connecting with other 828 families and building systems that help build a healthy and consistent family unit. This course is geared towards parents of preschoolers through elementary schoolers. ($45/family)

Family Recovery Group

Family Recovery is a class for families that have dealt with the complex effects of addiction and are looking for a guided class in navigating the growing and healing part of the recovery process as a family and together with God.

Health and Life Fitness Group

Health and Life Fitness is Julia Witchek's Wellness Transformation Program that combines the right system, the right support, and the right accountability to help you make the changes in your life to create the health and wellness that you want and deserve.

Thank you for being bold and taking the next step into the 828 family. You won’t regret it!
