What is a Life Group?

A Life Group is a regular small group gathering of 6 to 12 people for the purpose of experiencing love and care while growing as a disciple. The purpose of the Life Group ministry is “Building Disciples By Building Community.” Life Groups meet together in homes to build relationships, to learn God’s Word, and to support one another in life’s challenges.

We need the support and encouragement of others to become more like Jesus. That is why Life Groups will focus on building caring relationships. Group members will model various aspects of discipleship for one another, challenging one another with their lives and with God’s Word.
