We know that connecting is very important. Life Groups are a place to create a sense of community and build life long relationships. Being a part of a large church generates a need to interact with a smaller group where people have similar interests or are in a similar stage of life. This is what a Life Group is all about. You are not assigned to a group, but we encourage you to visit several and find one that fits you. Life Groups meet on Sunday mornings and give you the opportunity to not only attend worship services, but also, participate in life-changing Bible study with your friends. In fact, here is an acronym that describes Life Groups and expresses their purpose in a well thought out way:
L – Live in Community
I – Invest in Growth
F – Find Your Purpose
E – Embrace God’s Mission
Living in community simply means that we share life together. Another way of saying this is that we are there for one another in good times and bad. We pray for and care for one another. We grow in our relationship with Christ together. Investing in growth speaks of our determination to grow more like Christ. In a community we can hold each other accountable for the development of spiritual disciplines in our lives. We become intentional about our plan to discover all Christ has for us and about studying His Word. Finding your purpose is recognition of God’s giftedness. He has uniquely designed and gifted each one of us. In community with others, we begin to discover these gifts and become better equipped to serve Him through them. Embracing God’s mission means that we become fully devoted to living out God’s calling in our life. It is through Life Groups that we begin to see people stepping up into leadership. It is our prayer that you will take the next step in being a part of our church family by connecting with a Life Group. Make it a priority today!
