Grow in your faith, make new friends, and get connected to the heartbeat of Harbor City Church

Scroll down for descriptions of all available groups!

Life Groups are Harbor's groups of fifteen or so people that meet during the week in convenient locations all across the city, led by people just like you. Each meeting lasts two hours or less. There are four great reasons to join a Life Group:

  • Weekly Bible study helps you grow in your faith.
  • Prayer from others helps you get through the tough times.
  • Meet new friends.
  • Have fun!
Fall Groups begin in October and last through December

Your group meets ten to twelve times over each semester. It’s a short-term commitment—but the positive impact on your life will be long-term!

Learn more and sign up below. If you have questions or need more info, email .

The leader of your new Group will contact you with the address of the Group’s meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.
