LIFE Groups are gatherings of around 5-15 people. They meet at various times and locations all over the Western Suburbs of Chicago. They include times for prayer and a variety of content based on the needs/desires of the group (bible study, video series, etc). At OBCC, we believe that getting involved in the lives of others is where you will see real change happen. Honesty, transparency, accountability, care, and spiritual growth happen best with relationally connected believers.
