Life Groups and Spiritual Growth

One thing that all of us have in common is that we are on a journey - an adventure of life - and we're not meant to journey alone. At Yorkminster Park we welcome you to journey with us.

Our Life Groups are opportunities for us to do life together, to share in the struggles and victories, the sorrows, and the joys. Our groups are being conducted in-person at church and online. Some are hybrid – a combination of the two. Check out the opportunities below. If you have any questions, feel free to email Rev. Paula Willis.

Each Monday you will receive the link to the lecture. On Thursday afternoons at 1:45 pm, in the Gladstone Library, there will be an in-person session joining with the livestream community as each week's scholar leads a discussion related to their lecture. Please direct queries to:
