life is better in groups

At YpsiFree we believe God created us for community—we are meant to live in relationship with Jesus and with each other. One of the best sources of meaningful community is to gather in small groups. In these groups, we open ourselves to becoming deeply-formed people who love God, love all people, and follow Jesus together.
 
 
 
 
New Groups start each September, January, and April
