Life Groups, Men’s Groups, and Events

Life Groups: Known. Present. Faithful. Life Groups are smaller circles within our bigger church that keep us connected in intentional relationships to be known, present and faithful. Jesus prayed that we would be one with each other and with God, so that the world may believe in Him (John 17:20-21).
Men at Magnify: At Magnify Church, we are committed to helping men find and follow Jesus Christ. Through small groups, large groups, events, and mentor relationships we can learn more about God and each other. Studying the Bible together and chatting over a cup of coffee (or slab of bacon) we can experience personal growth, a greater understanding of the Word, and stronger relationships with our brothers in Christ.
Contact: Trent Heaton

Women’s Groups and Events

Come and be fed. There is always a place for you at the table. At Magnify we encourage women of all walks of life to come together to study the Word of God, be in fellowship with the people of God, and listen to the Spirit of God. Bible Study is a place where we can grow intimately closer to God and to each other.
Contact: Lori Wasson or Leanne Blackmore

We are a community of families that are learning how to love our spouses well and raise children that see God in our households to help them choose to follow Him as they become adults.  We meet at the Rockford Campus during second service in the Loft, and we have an area for your kids to hang out if they aren’t involved with Kids at Magnify during that service.
Contact: Jeff Courter or Andy Woodard
