Life Groups are all about enjoying life. If you want to shape up, help out, get social, or experience some culture, Kettering SDA has a group that’s right for you. From seniors to school kids, our Life Groups can help you get a daily dose of feeling good while doing good.

Craft Ministry is the community outreach arm of Women’s Ministry, but all are welcome. We are planning to initially meet on a quarterly basis.

Opportunities for spin-off groups will be available for specialized crafts and special projects.
