Community Groups are once a week gatherings where you can connect with and meet people who are doing life in the city, just like you! Our desire iso for you to experience life-changing discipleship and believe that happens in our Community groups at Liberty Church. Some groups are social and meet for coffee each week, some are more study based, working through the Bible or book studies, and some have topical focuses like finance or marriage and families. They happen throughout the city at all different days and times of the week! We are sure there is something for you! Community Groups sign ups are open until February 12th and groups will begin the week of February 12th and run until April 29th. We can’t wait to meet you in Community Group!

Every year the women of Liberty Church host the She is Free Conference – where women from all over New York City and around the world gather to be changed from the inside out, and empowered to administer freedom in their sphere of influence. Guest speakers include Andi Andrew, Christa Black- Gifford and Dr. Caroline Leaf.
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
2 Corinthians 9:6–11, NIV
The Kirkendolls stumbled upon Liberty Church two years after moving to New York, and, surrounding themselves with a church that has a contagious love for people, they felt their hearts moved toward the city they call home. Living and working in Bay Ridge, they began dreaming of a church that would extend the freedom and love and family they’d discovered to others in their neighborhood.</p> <p>Heath and Emily met through a campus ministry at Boston University, and they share a passion for connecting people through the church and seeing lives transformed. After college, Emily began a career in publishing while Heath served in the Peace Corps in Mozambique. They were engaged during a nor’easter in Boston, married during a blizzard in Toronto, and honeymooned during the rainy season in Zambia. So, they’re pretty much weatherproof.</p> <p>Heath is a high school social studies teacher in Bay Ridge and is passionate about youth, education policy, and, of course, history. Emily has served on staff as Finance Director at Liberty Church since it was a year old, witnessing the heart and mission of Liberty expand over many stages of growth. She loves to read and is keeping a running list of the books that have changed her life. Since moving to New York, they’ve added two native New Yorkers to the family, Amos and Miles, and as parents they love to see kids and families thriving in the city.
