Life Groups

Our Life Groups Help You Get Connected, Form Friendships, and Grow Together with Other Believers.

At Praise Community Church, we believe that learning together is an important part of Christian growth. Recognizing the diverse spiritual life of our congregation, we have many adult classes that cover a wide-range of topics, age groups and meeting times. If you desire a closer walk with Jesus, there is a class for you!

Below you will find some basic facts about each class, along with a brief description of what the class is studying and its approach to the material. It is impossible to capture the flavor of a class in a single paragraph; but, perhaps this guide will help you find a place to begin exploring. All our classes provide support and fellowship to their members.

And, that is exactly what we hope you will do: explore. Learning about God is an exciting journey. Our goal at PCC is to be co-learners with you as we all journey together. Look around, find a class that fits where you are right now in your journey, and jump on board. Become part of this thinking, feeling, and healing community of faith.
