SSM Life Groups are our version of small groups but for junior high and high school students. Being in a life group is an amazing way to get to know other students and build community with other people who want to grow closer to God. Every group has a caring adult leader and somewhere around 10 students who are all the same age range and gender. Life Groups meet weekly throughout the school year and they typically take place on Tuesday or Wednesday nights.
