Home Groups - Began the week of September 10
Signing up for a Home Group is open online! Our Groups will start-up the week of September 10. The primary way in which the community of Liberti Church connects together is in neighborhood-based groups called “home groups” that meet throughout the week where you can get to know and be known by others as you develop honest relationships and work out together what it means to follow Jesus. Go to libertichurch.org/homegroups to find a group near you.
