Remember the old “Cheers” theme song?
“Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got / taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot?”
Well, we agree, and though we aren’t opening a new pub or anything (yet), but we do want to invite friends, neighbors and other humans for an opportunity to come hang out together and to develop new friendships with believers.
Lifegroups serve a few main purposes:
- as an entry point into the church body. There are people who we can invite into our homes more easily than to our churches!
- as the main representation of the fellowship & discipleship nature of the church. The First Century church likely looked more like family small groups meeting in homes to learn, worship, and fellowship together.
Even in a moderately sized church, the numbers are daunting for knowing one another… life groups allow us to meet one another and new people in a setting when we could actually get to know each other.
Some of our Sunday morning Life Groups are typically consistent across time and are often age or life-stage related. Others are semester based and designed by the teacher and topic.
Life Groups that meet at other times and locations than the church/Sunday morning, run in 3 annual semesters (Spring, Summer & Fall) and our Life Groups are flexible and incredibly varied!
Even if you are new to the faith, or the church, we welcome you to join us in living life together… disciples making disciples. For the most up to date information on life groups, contact Elizabeth Smith.
