Life Groups

We want all people at Rehoboth to belong and feel closely connected to a community of believers. Our Life Group model is based on the early church, which gathered regularly for fellowship, to eat together, and to pray for one another.

  • Singles Group

He's also 10 years a widower, and still learning to rely more and more on the daily grace and strength that comes through faith in the Father-God that Jesus knew. This group will be lighthearted, fun, and a safe place to ask questions as we seek answers together from a uniquely single perspective in God's kingdom.
