LIFE GROUPS

Life Groups meet throughout the week all over the South End. Life Groups are intended to be more than just an evening with friends, they are designed to foster transformational environments where people can journey and do life together wherever life happens. We encourage you to find a group that is the right fit. Whether you are new to our church or have been here for a while, we encourage you to visit one or as many groups as you would like. Once you are settled in a group, dig in and rejoice in doing life with one another, all the while making a big deal out of Christ.

Contact Pastor Luis if you would like more info about getting involved in a Life Group - luis@islandchurchofwhidbey.org

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 (NIV)

ENJOY THE CONVENIENCE OF ONLINE GIVING!

The Island Church of Whidbey offers online giving, which is convenient for you and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

Click on 'Online Giving' tab below! Thank you!

"What happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard- things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely". (Galatians 5:22-23 The Message
