Life Group FAQs

What is a Life Group?
A Life Group is 5-15 people gathering in a home to study God’s Word. The goal is to connect with others, grow to be more like Christ, and impact the community.

What happens in a Life Group?
Life Groups discuss a lesson based on the sermon from the previous weekend.

Is there childcare?
Some Life Groups do provide childcare and each group is responsible for providing their own childcare. Depending on the age of the children, some groups include them in some part of the group time and then separate them in another room.

When and where do Life Groups meet?
Life Groups meet once a week during evenings. Each group meets on a specific day of the week at a specific hour. While most groups meet in a consistent location (the home of a group member), some groups prefer to take turns meeting in different members’ homes. The group leaders determine when and where they meet.

How long does each Life Group meeting last?
Life Groups last for an hour and a half to two hours.

What goes on at a Life Group meeting?
Life Groups start with a time of praise and/or worship. There is then an opening question that transitions into the lesson discussion. After the discussion, there is prayer time, followed by dinner or snacks. Each group is responsible for their own dinner or snacks (it is usually pot-luck style).
