What Happens in Life Groups?

Most of our groups will have some combination of the following components in their Life Group meetings:

  • Worship - some groups spend time singing or expressing praise to God for who He is and what he has done recently in their life.
  • Bible Study - we look into God's word to increase our understanding of God and His will for our lives and how we can apply the Bible to everyday life.
  • Sharing - our groups often spend some time sharing with each other how our weeks are going and joys and struggles we face. Sharing may also take on an evangelistic emphasis when seekers come to our groups and have questions about God or our relationship to Him and the world.
  • Prayer - after sharing we spend time in prayer
  • Refreshments - as the early church often shared a common meal we often have refreshments after our fellowship time - and this is where people can connect with each other in an informal way.
  • Fellowship Events - sometimes the cell groups meet socially without a lot of structure as the normal cell meeting would have. This may take the shape of a bar-b-que, going out to the moutains, going to a sporting event or simply having a games night.
  • Spiritual Emphasis Nights/Weekends - a group may choose to have a half-night or prayer or go on a weekend retreat together (Encounter God / Touching Hearts Weekend Seminars).
