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:
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.
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.
Weekly therapy groups are an affordable way to get emotional and spiritual healing and support in a safe and confidential group setting.
If you’re interested in attending a group, please contact the group facilitator.
