LIFEgroups

...They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people...
Acts 2:46-47

What is a LIFEgroup?

Simply defined, a LIFEgroup is a group of 4-12 people who meet weekly or bi-monthly to encourage and care for one another. We believe intentional relationships are they key to sustained spiritual growth.  That's why LIFEgroups are such an important part of our discipleship strategy. In a LIFEgroup, people study God's Word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another and are missed if they don't show up. Practically speaking, there will never be a way for Living Branch staff to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That's why we place such a high premium on group life. It's how we minister effectively at Living Branch.
