Life Groups 

What are life groups?

Life groups are communities of people looking to build authentic relationships with God and each other. In life groups, we encourage and support one another as we study, pray, and share. They are a safe space where every voice is heard and every person is loved.

What will we be studying?

Five Things God Uses to Grow Your Faith
What adjective best characterizes you faith?
Would you say it's dynamic... genuine...flourishing?
Or would elusive... stalled... ineffective describe it better?

Imagine how different your outlook on life would be if you had absolute confidence that God was with you.  Imagine how differently you would respond to difficulties, temptations, and even good things if you knew with certainty that God was in all of it and planning to leverage it for good. In other words, imagine what it would be like to have PERFECT faith. In the DVD study, Andy Stanley builds a biblical case  for five things God uses to grow BIG faith.

Five Things God Uses to Grow Your Faith is certain to spark individual reflection and small group discussion  on this vital aspect of Christianity.

Sessions Titles Include:
1. Big Faith
2. Practical Teaching
3. Providential Relationships
4. Private Disciplines
5. Personal Ministry
6. Pivotal Circumstances

Who can join?

Everyone is welcome! At New Life, we recognize that everyone needs community! These groups are for anyone looking for more connection, even if you've never joined us before or don't call New Life your church home. Our hope is that you will feel heard, loved, and understood and we look forward to welcoming you.

What happens when we meet?

When we meet together, we spend time reconnecting with each other, watching a short video, and talking about it afterwards. After reflecting on God's message to us, we pray for one other and those outside our communities.
