Lifetree Café is a comfortable place and time to gather weekly to explore life and faith. It looks and feels like the kind of place you'd typically meet a friend for food, drink and fun. Where the atmosphere encourages conversations, questions, and personal stories.
Join us for compelling stories about fascinating people. Stories from the news. Stories from our own lives. The story of what God is doing in the world around us. At Lifetree Café, we explore all those stories - and make sense of our faith and our lives.
Every week, Lifetree Café gathers friendly people to experience the intriguing stories of life around us. Stories about the big-and little stuff that shapes our lives. Family. Friends. Fears. Busyness. Balance. Money. Materialism. Health. Heaven. Peace. Purpose.
Lifetree also meets at "The Pointe," 7:00 pm, Tuesday evenings.
