WHAT IS A LIFE GROUP?
Simply stated, it is a place in which an individual can think about and discuss how God is transforming your life and making you into a disciple in a small group setting. Life Groups are modeled after Wesley’s class meetings that were an integral part of the early Methodist Movement.
As stated in the book Class Meeting by Kevin Watson, our life group “is a small group that is primarily focused on transformation and not information, where people learn how to interpret their entire lives through the lend of the gospel, build a vocabulary for giving voice to their experience of God, and grow in faith in Christ.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN A LIFE GROUP?
A typical life group has 8-16 regular participants. When a life group reaches 16 people, it “divides” and becomes two groups. This insures that the focus of a life group is spiritual growth rather than creating a “holy huddle.”
