Life Groups

Home / Life Groups

Our Life Group classes are designed to help members and guests connect with other people in our church who share a similar life stage. These small groups are organized by age and meet each Sunday at 9 AM to fellowship and study God’s Word. Each small group also organizes frequent activities to enjoy together as a class. Look at the list below to find a group that fits your life stage so you can get plugged in.

College & Career

The college and career classes of Mikado are active groups of young adults who enjoy life! College life can be lonely at ties, and Mikado offers a safe place for like-minded believers to fellowship and study God’s Word together. This group of singles also enjoys regular activities as well as short-term mission trips.
