What is a Life Group?
A life group is a group of 3-30 people who meet together regularly with the purpose of growing in their faith. Frequency of meetings is determined by the life group members.
Why a Life Group?
There are two goals for a life group:
- Authentic community
- Spiritual growth
We are created in the image of a God whose existence literally is community—in the persons of God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit—and God intends for us to live in community as well. We also all know we are not yet fully who God has created us to be.
There are two pivotal questions that can help us live into God’s plan:
- What is God saying to me?
- What am I going to do about it?
Growth happens when we act on the area where God is speaking to us. Something powerful happens when we speak out loud the answers to these questions. We are much more likely to act on the things we name out loud with trusted friends, as we are encouraged and held accountable together.
Just as consistent times of physical training yield positive results, consistent time of gathering in small groups and answering these questions will yield strong community and spiritual growth in our lives.
Fill out this form and we will get you plugged into a life group soon!

No prior experience in the practice is necessary. Come as you are Tuesday mornings at 6:30.
