Purpose: Experiencing spiritual growth in a safe environment.
Life groups are small groups of 8-10 people who will meet weekly for 5 to 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).
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 for building friendships. We believe great growth can happen through friendships and in a safe community.

Please note, our Life Groups are designed for those who Jesus Center is their home church. Also, these are not open meetings, so we are asking everyone to register. If you have a schedule or personality conflict that arises, our Life coordinators will work to get you into a different group.
