God created us for relationships.
Acts 2:42-47; Heb 10:24-25; Matt 18:20.
The early church did life together in relationship. They worshipped together, ate meals together and did life together. (Acts 2:46). Relationships matter. Following Jesus is not done in seclusion or even on your own!
God commands us to love others.
Matt 22:35-38; John 15:13; Eph 4:2.
Jesus calls us to love others. He commands us to love God and love others (Matt 22:35-38). We cannot love others unless we engage them, meet with them, share with them and know them. LifeGroups create one of the best platforms for this to take place.
Spiritual growth happens best in community.
Prov 27:17; Ecc 4:9-12; Gal 5:16-26.
There are 59 verses in the New Testament where God is calling His children to “one another!” Love one another; forgive one another; submit to one another; build up one another; confess to one another; spur on one another; pray for one another. It seems quite clear that God is calling us to each other far beyond meeting once a week on Sunday morning for church service. LifeGroups are an extension of the church, yet are able to reach deeper and more intimately in ways that a church service cannot.
Want to Join a LifeGroup?
LifeGroup Sign Ups this Fall!
1. LifeGroup Online Signups (Sept 11th through Sept 24th):
This will be for people looking to get into a LifeGroup and already know which group they are looking to connect with! These signups are made for people familiar with LifeGroups and maybe looking to switch groups or jump back into LifeGroups after a season of not being in one. All available groups will be online to view group information and to register/inquire about.
2. LifeGroup Starting Point Class (Sept 25th, Oct 2nd, 9th, 16th):
This will be a 4-week class for people new to LifeGroups or new to our church. The goal of this class is to share the vision of LifeGroups, why we believe they are vital to spiritual growth, and to model a LifeGroup setting. We want this to be the “starting point” for people looking to get plugged into LifeGroup!
This fall through spring, groups are continuing to meet. If you’d like to join a LifeGroup, or have questions about what LifeGroup to join, fill out the form below and Pastor Brad will be in contact with you!
