Gather

We believe the full life God intends for us exists within relationship. We foster relationships through groups, which exist to empower our potential through friendship, learning, and prayer.

- Gather Options -

We have a variety of groups for whatever season of life you might find yourself in.

 

Lifegroups

A group of three or more that meet weekly to discuss the sermon or other Bible topics. These are the groups designed to help you be fully alive in Christ by being known by others, grown by sharing your spiritual growth goals, and being loved toward positive changes. These groups are free to meet for as long as the members wish.

 

Interest Groups

A group of 6-10 people that meet around a service project or shared interest. These groups will discuss the sermon as part of their activity and encourage one another to grow spiritually.

 

Specialty Groups

These courses include, Divorce Care, Financial Peace University, Freedom Groups, Grief Share, Interest Groups, Starting Point, and Surrendering the Secret.  They are designed to address a specific need or interest for a specific season in life. They do not replace a Life Group for the purposes of being known, grown and loved

 

Student Groups

A group of 6-10 students that meet together weekly at host homes. These groups are available for middle school and high school students and arranged by campus.

 

 

- FAQ -

How often do we gather?

Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Most meet weekly.

 

Where do we gather?

Groups meet where people gather – in homes, restaurants, coffee shops, hiking trails = anywhere!

 

What will we talk about?

Groups may decide to use a variety of studies. Your facilitator will have access to resources that will allow you to study any topic that your group chooses.

 

Is childcare provided?

Not all Groups offer childcare, but some will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements.

 

Why do we have Semesters?

  • Lifegroups are not required to adhere to semesters. We do encourage these groups to take short breaks during busy holidays and end of school seasons. These groups last as long as the members would like, and you are free to choose another group.
  • Specialty groups meet on a semester basis and have a curriculum that is designed for taking the course only one time. These are supplements to Lifegroups, not in replacement of them.
