Our affinity groups allow people with common interests to meet for support and development. Many of these groups started with one person. If you have an idea for a group, contact the office at 815-322-2464. Here are some of our current affinity groups:

Our group is open to individuals from our church who are 21 or older who identify as women. Please join us, bring a friend and be prepared to be your authentic self, laugh and chill out.
