The Upper Zoom
Tuesdays at 1 PM CT
Leader: Mike Rogers

One thing about the messages we hear at Word of Life Church is they are worth hearing again and discussing as we each grow in the grace of God. Discussion guides will be posted at Sunday mornings. We are meeting on Zoom on Tuesdays at 1PM CT. These groups will be a great opportunity to get to know one another better, discuss the main points of each message, be reminded of the scripture references, and learn to apply what we are learning together.

Celebrate Recovery (CR)
Tuesday nights at 6:30 PM CT
Leader: Pastor Tyrese Barnett

Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a small-group-based support ministry for those looking for encouragement to overcome the difficulties of life. We meet every Tuesday night from 6:30-8:30 PM in the Life Center. 

CR is not just about recovery; it is about life transformation. Many people find themselves stuck in some kind of cycle of bad choices or pain - from which they feel they will never be free. At CR, there is hope. There are people who care. There is a way out. CR is not just a place for people struggling with addiction, but a refuge for anyone looking for help.
