Blackshear Place wants to provide an opportunity for busy moms and dads to connect with friends and neighbors through Life Groups. While your children and teens are enjoying great God-centered programming, you can develop a new skill, share your life experiences, or serve people in the community. And, best of all, it’s free for your whole family. Check out our fall Life Groups list to find an activity or group that interests you.
