Doing Life Together
WHAT IS A LIFE GROUP?
A Life Group is a small group of people gathering in a leader’s home or at a designated place on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis to share food, fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. Life Groups exist to accomplish two goals. First, discipling believers by helping them to become more like Jesus. Secondly, build supportive relationships built on biblical principals by prayer, friendship and Godly love.
