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.

COVID-19 Season Update

We’re so encouraged to be able to meet in person again as of June 7; we’ve missed being together! While we enter Phase One of reopening that excludes classes, we will continue to offer online opportunities to stay connected to God and to the Northwest Chapel Family. 

Contact your group leader directly for information on meeting online. If you’re looking for a group, visit our Ways to Connect during COVID page for details. We have opportunities for women, men and college students. Children’s Ministries is also offering connection opportunities; Route 56 is offering a Bible study for our 5th and 6th graders, and Anchor Student Ministries has a few groups and even a Bible study challenge.

Wherever you are, there’s hope and healing in Jesus Christ.

 
Life Group 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?
Life Community Group discussions focus on the sermon series or a book study. 

How long is a typical Life Community Group session?
Groups meet at a variety of times, days, and locations for 10-12 weeks, typically in the fall and winter/spring seasons.

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. Group leaders can help you determine which group will work best for you.

What will happen at the end of the Life Community Group Session?
It is not a life-long commitment; it is a commitment to share life! New groups will form for the next session. 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.

I currently lead a separate group and would like to formally connect as a Life Community Group. What should I do?
Contact Pastor Shannon Hollinger at shollinger@northwestchapel.org or 614-761-0363 for leadership requirements, to register your group, and to sign up for leadership training.
