Living Life With Each Other
LifeGroups exist so that you can create authentic friendships and grow in your relationship with Christ. Here's how we do that:
Our LifeGroups will always be founded in the teaching of scripture. The goal of LifeGroup studies are to take you deeper into the scriptures. We want to help you engage with scripture.
LifeGroups also provide a more intimate setting for you to grow. We believe that this setting encourages deeper, genuine relationships, as well as better teaching discussions.
Our church is filled with people and families in different seasons of life. Our LifeGroups are designed to get you plugged into a community of people in the same season of life as you.
We want our LifeGroups to be missional. One of the ways we do that is through outreach. LifeGroups serve in the church throughout the year, as well as do outreach in our community.
To make sure that each LifeGroup is successful in this mission of making disciples we structure our LifeGroups under three essential rhythms which produce healthy and thriving disciples of Jesus. These three rhythms are spiritual disciplines (up), community (in), and mission (out). These three rhythms create and cultivate the context where we grow in different aspects of being and making disciples of Jesus.
