One of our most popular ways to connect with others in the church and to grow in our faith is through Life Groups. These groups meet for about an hour to an hour and a half every week to study scripture together. The goal of each group is to grow in knowledge, faithfulness and obedience to the Word of God. Every Life Group is intentional about the four biblical 'pillars' of Discipleship, Evangelism, Christian Community and Christian Service. These pillars are the foundation of our wholehearted Worship of God.
We have had Life Groups since September 2010. Every group welcomes new members, and we begin new groups every few months. In the interim, our church has become more intentional in its mission as disciples of Jesus Christ. We are committed to training new and existing leaders to lead these groups. Each leader desires to help people grow deeper in their faith and to create a safe environment for questions and open discussion.
Life Groups are offered throughout the week. Some groups are intergenerational and some are centered around stages of life. There are features of each that can help people to grow deeper in your relationship to Jesus Christ.
