Why life groups?
Life Groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together – growing in relationship with one another and with God. 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 through community 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.
We are refining the purpose of Life Groups while expanding the types of groups offered. Our goal is to allow groups to reflect the passions and interests of their people. Different types of groups could include sermon-based groups, book studies, support groups, interest-based groups, service groups, topical groups, etc.
Human beings naturally group! So we’re not asking our CFC family to stop their lives to join a Life Group…instead let’s be strategic in turning our lives into ministry using Life Groups. This direct “life-to-life" approach describes the desire to see people connecting in groups for the purpose of growing in relationship with one another and with God.
Leading a life group
Leading a Life Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Life Group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can easily find it. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Life Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
