life groups, renewed

The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone – we are better together!

We were made to live in community.

This season of isolation has made it more clear than ever – God designed us for relationships! We’re excited to live out our Renewed vision – Coming together: to know Jesus, become more like Him, and help others do the same – in Life Groups.

Life Groups offer a weekly ‘living room’ conversation to help you figure out what to do on Monday with what you heard on Sunday (or Saturday).

FAQ’s

Life Groups are small gatherings of people (10-14), that meet weekly with the purpose of living out our Renewed vision statement: Coming together: to know Jesus, become more like Him, and help others do the same.

Life Groups:

  • Are sermon based, so group discussion is based on the questions posted from the most recent sermon
  • Consist of a Fall session (10 weeks), Winter session (10 weeks) and a Spring session (8 weeks)
  • Are open to new members (at the beginning of the session)
  • Meet consistently during the session
  • Allow members to exit gracefully (in order to seek a better fit)
  • Are intentional in utilizing the break periods to rest

Our Fall 2020 session will last ten weeks, starting the week of September 13. Groups meet weekly for an hour and a half.

Some Life Groups will meet online and others in-person (according to local health directives). You’ll find the group’s meeting preference as you look through the list of available groups.
