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.

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.
