Life Groups are small groups of up to 12 church members who meet ideally weekly or biweekly to encourage, support each other, form deeper relationship in an atmosphere of love, confidentiality and trust. In a life group, prayer, worship, testimonies and a brief word is shared, friendships are formed relationships are forged and a support system starts. They are base on relationship and fellowship.
Simply put, “we need one another.” God made us that way. He designed us to be His personal agents to encourage, challenge, and care for one another. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:34-35). Being in a life Group gives you the opportunity to connect with people at a deeper level.
Each life group is composed of a life group leader and members up to 12 people. They meet at a time and place that is convenient for the whole group. Ideally Life Groups meet for an hour in someone’s home. Developing significant relationships takes time and consistency—that’s why we encourage groups to meet every week.
Each group will need to workout childcare, either as a group or individually.
A life group meeting is a time to share testimonies, pray for one another, do activities to connect at a deeper level. It is not a time to hold a sermon but rather to form relationships.
Life group leaders are responsible for providing their groups with vision, direction, and support—they do not need to be Bible experts or teachers. Leaders are successful when they are personally growing in their intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders, and are leading their groups in such a way as to encourage the group members’ growth in these are as well.
