Life Groups

 

Love. Friendship. Acceptance

They are essential needs for a fulfilling, satisfied life. At Life Church, we believe one way to meet those needs is by living life in community.

Through Life Groups, you can connect with people who love to explore the Sawtooth mountains of our beautiful state, who are hungry for more spiritual wisdom and revelation, and who see you as family.

Don’t forsake the assembling of yourselves. But as iron sharpens iron, let’s come together and grow, cry and laugh as family.

Life Groups Pastor

 

Info

WHAT ARE LIFE GROUPS?

A Life Group is an intentional gathering of people on a regular basis where you can connect with others who share your interests, who are in a similar stage of life, or who have experience in an area where you would like coaching.

WHY DO WE HAVE LIFE GROUPS?

Life Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others, and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life with each other is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist — to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A LIFE GROUP?

It is through doing life together that our problems become smaller, and God uses others to bring healing, support and encouragement to our lives — whether we realize we need it or not. Your Life Group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name but care about what is happening in your life. It is your opportunity to be used of God to bring these elements into the lives of others. Some are designed for men, women, youth, etc., while others focus on marriage and family or another specific interest. With a variety to choose from, we know you will find the perfect fit.

WHEN DO LIFE GROUPS MEET?

Groups meet weekly, biweekly or once a month on the days and times of their choosing.

These classic Bible study courses by Kenneth E.
Hagin have been re-edited to include chapter review questions to further enhance your study of God’s Word. These teachings
on the vital subjects of faith, prayer, the Holy Spirit and His gifts, and healing will show you how to live a life of victory and abundance!
Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him (God).” If God demands that we have faith when it is impossible for us to have faith, then we have a right to challenge His justice. But since He places within our hands the means whereby faith can be produced, then we must take responsibility for whether or not we have faith.
The “Bible Faith Study Course” takes you through the Word of God
to teach you how faith is produced and how to turn your faith loose
in every area of your life. These principles will enable you to please
God and live victoriously in this life! Book costs $13.50, or you can
order it through Amazon. You will be asked to read the homework and participate in group discussions. The idea is to bring out what registered with you during your reading.
