Moving people from sitting in rows to sitting in circles

Is community important? Of course! When we study the Word with one another in close-knit community, there is spiritual growth that changes us individually and as a whole. There is something powerfully unique about an intimate gathering around a living room, a small classroom, or a dining room table that forces us to think differently than when we are in a large room for worship.

So here are reasons why it's important to you...

  • Personal discovery

    Richer, deeper personal discovery happens in LifeGroups. You can learn, ask questions, involve yourself in the lives of others, and generally make yourself vulnerable among other people who are doing the same in LifeGroups. You just can't do that in sermons. Spiritual growth happens better with others, in community, with open lines of communication and freedom to speak into one another's lives.

  • smaller communities are more effective

    Smaller communities act more like, well... communities. The bigger the group, the less like community it feels. A LifeGroup community drives a level of intimacy that is often easily lost in larger settings.

  • Deeper friendships

    Deeper friendships are created that double as accountability as well. When people know you - really know you - your life becomes far more transparent. Others learn to read you, creating opportunities to deal with real-life difficulties as they surface.  This is what we should expect from good friends.

  • maximum participation

    There are opportunities to discuss your spiritual matters with others in the church. Lives are sharpened and leaders developed, involving as many people as possible in the life and ministry of our church - including you!
