A Life Group is a group of people who gather regularly for the purpose of growing in their relationship in Christ. Being a part of a Life Group is vital to your spiritual growth and fulfilling God’s plan for your life and walk with Him. Jesus modeled the importance of being involved with a Life Group in his relationship with the 12 apostles. The early church carried this tradition on when they, “…devoted themselves to the disciples teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer.” (Acts 2:42)

The Life Group ministry at Grace exists to provide sound teaching and application of the Word, fellowship, prayer, support and encouragement. As part of the Grace family, we pray that you will connect with one of our many Life Groups and become a thriving part of the Body of Christ.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20

Benefits of joining a Life Group:

• You will grow in your relationship with Christ.
• You will understand the Bible better in a Small Group.
• You will build relationships with other Christians.
• You will be able to handle stress and pressure better.
• You will strengthen your prayer life.
• You will begin to feel like a part of God’s family.
• You will be a New Testament Christian!
