At the heart of our vision for the Life Group ministry at LifeWell is the desire to see a community of believers who are growing deeper in their love for Christ and their obedience to him.
What is the Purpose of Life Groups?
The Scriptures indicate that the Christian life is to be lived out in community with other believers. Within that community; we are instructed to encourage, serve, rejoice, weep, correct, instruct, build up, accept and love one another. Life Groups provide a wonderful context to facilitate involvement in one anothers lives.
Hebrews 10:24‐25 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” As a church, we are hopeful that our Life Group ministry will be one of the significant ways we live out our obedience to this exhortation.
How do Life Groups fit into LifeWell as a Whole?
Though the Bible does not command us to organize a Life Group ministry, it does presuppose that a significant relational life exists within the church. Life Groups are a chosen means of cultivating relational life and discipleship at LifeWell. With the foundational role in the life of our church, we hope that a sizable number of LifeWell attendees will be involved in a Life Group.
