What is a L.I.F.E. GROUP?
Groups have 12-15 adults who meet weekly or every other week for 1.5 hours in various homes or the church. There are a many groups to choose from. Across the groups you’ll find a variety of family dynamics, demographics and different stages of life. Some meeting during the week, some meet on the weekend. This diversity allows you to pick a group that is a good fit for you. To find out which group might be best for you, please contact us or speak with Pastor Don at the church office.
L.I.F.E. Groups gather for 3 main purposes:
- Bible Study
L.I.F.E. GROUPS help people answer 4 main questions:
- L = Love (who will care about me?)
- I = Influence (who will help me choose correctly?)
- F = Fellowship (who will be my friends?)
- E = Equip (who will train me to be Christ-like?)
- CONNECT people to others in a meaningful relationship.
- Make sure all of the people in the group are being CARED for.
- Promote a COHESIVENESS within the Church.
