Life groups

Our small group ministry at Rainier Hills is made up of what we call LIFE Groups. These are small groups of people from our church who meet in homes throughout the week to build relationships, study God's Word, and pray together. We see this as an essential part of the Christian Life, as well as an opportunity to invite those around us who may not be plugged in or even attend church to grow in their knowledge of God through our times together.


We have a number of different LIFE Groups going throughout the area that we would love for you to be a part of. We would encourage you to find a group that is close to your home that meets at a time that works for your schedule. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the LIFE group leaders (their contact info is on the flyers on their page) or send us an email at [email protected].


In addition to our LIFE Groups, there are a number of other fellowship opportunities that are worth checking out, some of which are led by our church members and other groups that use our church facility for their gatherings.  For a list of these groups, please take a look at the

Community Group page.
