Life Groups

What is a Life Group?

A Life Group is a small group of 8-12 people that focuses on three priorities – sharing, study, and support. Life Group members will commit to meet together every week for 10 weeks. There will be three 10-week sessions each year (fall, winter, and spring). By limiting the length of sessions to 10 weeks, people will be able to make a higher level of commitment to faithful attendance, which will greatly deepen the relational experience of those in the group. We call these “Life Groups” because they are focused on (1) helping us grow in our life in Christ and (2) sharing life together.

 

When and where do Life Groups meet?

There will normally be Life Groups meeting on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday evenings. Most Life Groups will meet in homes, though some will meet in the church building. Groups will normally be 1.5 to 2 hours in length.

 

Can we bring our children?

Each group will decide how they desire to handle childcare. Some groups will provide a Children’s Ministry worker on site to be with the kids. Some groups will be adults only and parents will need to find their own childcare.
 

Life Group Priorities

SHARING

Each week we will be sharing what is happening in our lives. At first this will include planned sharing questions to help us get to know each other. After a few weeks, our time together will become more natural and personal as we feel more comfortable with each other.

STUDY

Each week we’ll share what we are learning from our Life Group Study (a sermon-based study, or a biblically based book or topic). Our goal is to learn how to live out our faith in everyday life as we grow in becoming passionate Christ-followers.

SUPPORT

Each week we’ll learn how to love and support one another as Christ commanded (John 15:9-13). This can take many forms such as prayer, encouragement, challenging one another, and meeting practical needs.
