At Saratoga Abundant Life Church we believe in living out our faith in a real, tangible way. It is for this reason we have Life Groups. These small groups are the most vital aspects of our church life and we encourage everyone who attends this church to get involved in one of our many groups.

Gathering together in small groups throughout the local area allows us to form closer, deeper relationships with each other. This in turn strengthens, bonds and edifies the church as we seek the purposes of God in our lives and the community around us.
