Adult Life Groups

Life Groups at Weddington Church are designed to help you connect with others, build friendships, grow in faith, and serve alongside others. We have a variety of groups – men, women, co-ed, and special interest groups.  We encourage you to find a group and get involved.

Since we know you’re busy, jump in when you can for 15 minutes to gather, 30 minutes of Bible study, and 15 minutes of talking it out. The group is currently studying Jesus in the Old Testament.
