With all the pressures of our fast-paced lifestyles, we are hungry for community. We search for belonging and deeper relationships. Life Groups help people connect with God and one another.


Our Vision for Life Groups

A group of 5-15 people who form the basic unit of Christian community. It provides a place for members to gather weekly around the presence of Christ, support one another as a family, reach out to those far from God, and mentor and release new leaders, all of which results in the multiplication of groups as others are added.

 

Resources

Our LifeGroup resource library has expanded to provide more great study tools for you and your group. Look through the list of resources and then reserve & sign out the materials by emailing Kelly.

We’re excited to share that our church has access to an extensive, video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" and has a very large library of faith-based videos you can access whenever and wherever you want—on your phone, iPad, computer, or at home on your TV.

We believe RightNow Media will be a tool to serve you as you live out your faith at home, at work and in your neighborhood. RightNow Media has videos for everyone—kids, youth, parents, married couples, college students, single adults, working professionals—all aimed at helping you grow.

If you would like an invitation to access RightNow Media, please click here to email us; include your first name, last name and email address to request access. Once we’ve set you up you’ll receive an invitation email at the specified email address with a link to create your account.

Let's take a closer look at the four key functions of Life Groups:

Life Groups are the place where we corporately come together into the presence of Christ. Life Groups must develop an expectancy to corporately connect with God; that his presence and power will permeate everything that happens during our time together.
Life Groups are the primary way in which we can find community. In small groups with face-to-face interaction we can find the support, encouragement and care that we are looking for. Our meetings are designed to tear away hidden agendas and apply God's life-giving Word to our real needs in the grind of daily life.
Evangelism is only effective in direct proportion to establishing and cultivating meaningful relationships with others! Life Groups cheer us on in outreach and provide the natural setting to bring seekers to see what Christian community actually looks like.
Life Groups are dedicated to integrating others, giving opportunity to lead people to faith in Christ and model what it looks like to walk with Christ. .Within the context of relationships, new believers are discipled, new leaders are mentored, and new groups are launched.
