A LifeGroup is a place where participants share a common desire to journey towards Christ-likeness together. As followers of Jesus Christ, we have the wonderful promise that, as our lives are given and submitted to Him, the Holy Spirit will continually transform us into the image of Christ until the day we see Him face to face. Our greatest calling is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul mind and strength and to love our neighbours as ourselves… and we are told to do that together. With that in mind,LifeGroups are based on existing and/or developing friendships – they are relationally focused, not information or task driven. LifeGroups are dynamic, and two main factors will impact their makeup: 1. Depth of Sharing – When friendships are new, it’s reasonable to expect that the level of sharing and praying for one another will be less than once the friendships have been better established or matured. a LifeGroup consisting of new friends may decide to spend more of their time learning together, but their primary focus still remains on the development of Christ-honoring friendships. 2. Desired Size of Group – There is no correct size for a LifeGroup. It may be a group of 8-12 people who are learning to journey towards Christ together or a more intimate group of 3-4 people set on intentionally discipling one another. Once a LifeGroup is formed, it is given shape by the use of a seasonal covenant. At the beginning of every season (fall, winter and spring), LifeGroups will meet to renew or establish their covenant with one another. It is the creation of this covenant which gives shape to the time that they commit to spending with each other. In short, a LifeGroup is…
A group of people who share a common desire to journey towards Christ-likeness together.
They are based on existing and/or developing friendships and are shaped by the use of seasonal covenants.
What happens when a LifeGroup meets?
With relationally-based discipleship as our goal, there is a lot of freedom in how we use our time together. Whether our time be spent in studying Scripture together, sharing together, praying together or serving together – the key word is together in Christ-honoring friendships. As a church, we are committed to expository preaching that is based on working through books of the Bible. We provide sermon-based studies that focus primarily on deepening our understanding of the Scripture passage the message is based on. We encourage LifeGroups to make this their main source of study together.
Should I be in a LifeGroup?
Some questions to ask:
1. Do I feel motivated to mature in my relationship with God and others?
2. Am I at a place where I desire to make new friendships or deepen existing ones?
3. Am I willing to make a commitment to a seasonal covenant that will help us reach our goals?
How would I become involved in a LifeGroup?
