Life Groups

A life group is a group of 3-12 people that meet regularly in homes or at church for friendship, encouragement, Bible study and prayer.  Life groups help ground people in gospel-centered living by together applying Scripture to daily life.  They also provide a place to build spiritual friendships with others (community) and give a context for mission to each other as well as comrades for mission outward to others.  


A Life group gathering, is with anywhere from 3 to 12 people who want to invest deeper. A Life group is a strategic, yet practical step in which you engage with one another.  There are three different  types of Life groups: Ongoing life group (group of people sharing meals, doing studies together and growing/living life together), Short term life group (specific topics for specific periods of time) and Mentoring relationship life group (More direct discipleship track that will help move you along in your growth). Topics can be anywhere from a book of the Bible, a discipline, a theme, or other relevant book. The goal is to relationally engage with people as you move toward a deeper connection of loving God and loving others.

As you look through the different options we have at this time, please feel free to contact the contacts for each Life Group or contact Pastor Sam if you have interest in attending a Life group or possibly starting a Life Group.
