Interested in Starting a Life Group?


What is a Life Group?


A Life Group can start with just you and one other person meeting together to study the Bible. It’s all about cultivating a Christian faith community, whether it’s for your family, housemates, friends, neighbors, recent acquaintances, or other spheres of influence. Life Groups typically have a cycle of six to eight weeks, but can continue for years.

Why start a Life Group?


Participating in a Life Group helps both the leaders and participants grow in their walk with Christ, as well as build much-needed community. It’s also a practical way to answer the call of the Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:18). There may be some who aren’t ready to walk through the doors of a church, but they would be willing to go to a coffee shop to talk about God.
