The Vision for our Life Groups is the same as for our Church: To go and share the love of Jesus that unites diverse people in refreshing community. Life Groups are often formed from our ROOTED Discipleship groups (see below). Life Groups typically meet monthly and are always open to new people.
Core Purposes of Life Groups:
LOOK UP: Prayer (Connect with God)
Prayer is vital to connect our hearts with the purposes of God in us and in the world. As we hear the needs of one another and then commit these to God in prayer, we are interceding for one another and approaching God as the One who can transform us and change our situation.
LOOK IN: Fellowship (Connect with Each Other)
Spiritual growth hinges upon a believer being connected to both God and the church family. Group members do life together by connecting in a deeper, vulnerable way with each other. The group must truly become family, authentic in relationships and support for one another
LOOK OUT: Outreach (Connect with Unchurched/Seekers)
We want our Life Groups to be a “safe” environment to invite seekers. Sometimes it's simply prayer for a friend. Other times it might be inviting your friend to a BBQ or fun night out with the group. Other times it might be encouraging a group member to bring over a meal to a neighbor who is going through a difficult season of life. God calls all of us to reach out a hand to people who don't know him.
ROOTED is our church-wide, small group Discipleship Journey where you will learn how to connect with God, with his Church, and with your purpose in life. You will build healthy relationships with others and with Jesus as you establish firm roots in the Truths of God’s Word through personal study, and through group discussion and sharing. This 10-week journey will take you through such topics as how God speaks to us, where is God in the midst of suffering, there is an enemy, how can I make the most of my life, how does God view money, and several other spiritual and practical life lessons that will equip you not only as a disciple or follower of Jesus, but as a disciple-maker. As you incorporate the 7 Rhythms of ROOTED, you will deepen your walk with Jesus.
A typical Conquer Group is made up of 5-6 men, including your host. The setting is casual. You will watch one DVD per week for five weeks, go through the discussion topics presented in the DVD and follow the workbook. You will be given a mission each week to apply the lessons you’ve learned.
Every Thursday, 7 – 8:30pm in the Administration Building. For more information call Wyatt at 561 246-7322
