Life Groups

    Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of Life Community Groups?

A life community group is a small group of people connecting and sharing life together. Groups are an opportunity to connect with others, discuss the Bible, and grow spiritually.

What materials will the Life Community Group study?

This fall, Life Community Group discussions will focus on the sermon series or a book study. You can see the focus of each group on the Life Community Group list.

What are the dates for the Winter 2019 Life Community Group Session?

Life Groups will begin meeting the week of September 15,2019. Groups meet at a variety of times, days, and locations for 10-12 weeks.

What responsibilities will I have as a Life Community Group member?

You should make it a high priority to faithfully attend each group meeting and actively engage in the group meeting. Even if you can’t attend every session, we still want you involved.

What about kids?

Each group will determine how to provide for children. Some host homes will have a place for kids to play. Some groups may include children as part of the discussion. Some groups are designed for adults. You will see on the Life Community Group list which group will work best for you.

What will happen at the end of the Fall Life Community Group Session?

It is not a life-long commitment; it is a commitment to share life! New groups will form for the spring. Of course you may continue to meet as long as you like. After each new session, you can (1) recommit to the same group for the next session, (2) try a new group, or (3) take a break from groups.
