What are Life Groups?

At its core, a Life Group is a gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. It is through doing life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring healing, support, and encouragement to our lives.

Common Questions

What happens at a Life Group meeting?

You’ve probably seen Life Groups meeting and not even realized it. A Life Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest.

Where do Life Groups meet?

Life Groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Life Groups happen throughout the area.

What if I don’t like the first group I try?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in a group is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone — including you!

How often does a Life Group meet?

Our Life Groups meet for two semesters a year – Spring and Fall. During the semester, most groups meet once a week, twice a week, or monthly. Life Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every single meeting there is still great value in joining a group.

Is there childcare available?

Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.

How long does a typical Life Group last?

Most Life Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
