Want to cultivate more meaningful and godly relationships in your life? Joining a group at the Refinery is great way to start! 

We offer three different types of groups:

Life Groups

Our weekly life groups can help you to develop meaningful relationships and grow spiritually. In fact, life groups are one of the best places to grow in your walk as a Christian.

That is why it’s our vision for every person at The Refinery to be part of a life group at least twice a year. Our life groups meet weekly at the church or in homes around

Chula Vista and last 6-10 weeks.

Affinity Groups

Our affinity groups are the perfect place to gather with people who are in similar stages of life or share a similar interest or hobby. They’re a fun and casual way to meet new people or invite your friends.

Therapy/Recovery Groups

Weekly therapy groups are an affordable way to get emotional and spiritual healing and support in a safe and confidential group setting.

Life Groups

 If you’re interested in attending a group, please contact the group facilitator.
