If you’re looking to find a way to connect (and reconnect!) with spiritual friends, we hope that one of the options below will be right for you. If you’re newer to our community and want to know more about who we are, joining a Life Group is one of the easiest ways!


Not sure which group is right for you? Contact Executive Director Anne Park Grant (anne@churchwithoutwallsberkeley.org) with any questions that you might have. Looking forward to being with you this Fall!
