Life "Support" Groups

"The bigger we get, the smaller we get." We believe circles are better than rows. LIFE Groups are a vital part of the culture here at OACF. We want everyone to not only feel connected, but be connected growing stronger in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and one another. LIFE Groups provide a safe place to grow, heal, and rise up to one's full potential in life.

For more information on one of the LIFE Groups, contact the church office at 217-732- 4800 or email the church at

Remember, you matter to God and you matter to us! We welcome you with OPEN ARMS.
