Life groups are small groups of 8-10 people who will meet weekly for 7-weeks for the purpose of:
Serving our Gifts.
Gathering around Scripture.
Prayer for and with each other.
Why are we doing Life Groups? The early church met at the temple and also house to house (Acts 2:46). Currently, we have over 12 Life Groups that meet all over the South Bay, and we hope to launch new ones every season.
We love our big gatherings.
1) It is a time for people to refuel, learn, and encounter God. Worshipping in an auditorium full of people is a rich experience.
2) People who are trying to reconnect with God find themselves looking for a church service to attend. We get to be a witness to them. 3) It’s a time to meet new people and realize that we are part of something bigger. It’s a time our leaders can keep imparting vision so the church can continue to advance.
4) It’s a time where our children can be instructed in the ways of God and brought to an atmosphere of worship.
Yet, we need small groups.
In a traditional church service with more than 80 people, it is more challenging to connect deeper, serve our gifts, and be cared for and supported. Additionally, a traditional church service is an open door policy, where you never know who you will and won’t see, therefore it’s not as conducive towards building friendships. The larger the crowd gets, the less noticed each individual becomes. If there is no relationship, we can never track the growth and progress of the attendee. We love serving everyone, however, we want to be in relationship with people because: we believe God is relationship and people grow through relationships.
