What is the purpose of Life Groups?

The best and safest place to grow-up in Christ is among friends, leaders, and family. Life Groups are designed to be small interactive groups of friends, made up of both young and mature believers. These small home fellowships provide an opportunity for individuals to grow in their personal knowledge of the Lord and His kingdom while developing quality Christian friendships.

Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing (immersing) them into the name (or nature) of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.
— Matthew 28:19-20
He (Jesus) is the one who gave men as gifts to the church: as apostles, as prophets, as evangelists, and as pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ, until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ.
— Ephesians 4:11-13


What does a Life Group meeting look like?

We have found that Jesus has different agendas for the many different seasons of our lives.  We also find that each home fellowship often takes on a different expression depending on its individual leaders as well as the fellowship itself.  While the activities at each life group may differ between meetings, there are some common elements that occur throughout the year:

  • We have fellowships, cookouts, and fun to deepen our friendships with one another and meet our friends and neighbors
  • We have thought provoking discussions around the Word of God (The Bible) and grow in understanding
  • We worship the Lord Jesus with songs and prayers of adoration
  • We pray for individuals who have specific needs to support those among us
They (the believers) were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple (The Church), and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart.
— Acts 2:42-47


Who usually attends a Life Group?

Life Groups are made up of a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds, age groups, and status of life. Typically, life groups are made up of a blend of families, singles, members, visitors and friends.

Life Groups usually consists of individuals who have only recently heard of us, know someone among us, or members and individuals who simply have a longing to grow in their knowledge of the Bible and develop Christian friendships.
