100 Years - From Grace We Are United

Life Groups

 
We use small groups to help teach, plan, practice, and follow-thru living the 5 Paths of Discipleship (link to Vision, Belief, and Practice). These small gathering, in a comfortable home atmosphere, reflect the early church practice of “house church.” Life Groups provide a non-threatening setting to share the progress of discipleship formation.
 
Each life group meets for about 60 minutes a week, usually in a home. We share our experiences of piety, a brief study, our experiences of acts of mercy, plans for intentional giving, and prayer for one another. Some groups may share in songs as well.
 
It has been our experience that small groups of affirming folks nurture each other in deepening relationships with the sacred and each other. It has been our experience that in small groups genuine, compassionate, and caring friendships form and mature into the beloved community. It is in these groups that we experience the blessed family of God.
