Life groups at Midnaz

We believe real life change happens best in the context of real relationships, which relationships are developed in Life Groups.  We believe that Life Groups are the "lifeblood" of our church and of each person, so we want every person who comes to Midland Naz to become a part of a Life Group. 


Our Life Groups typically meet once a week in places all around our community and provide a place for you to connect, grow, and discuss the issues and challenges of life. Regardless of your age, interest, or location, we are sure there is a group out there for you. Life Groups are also where we pray, care for one another, and are missed if we don’t show up!
