LIFE GROUPS

 What are Life Groups?

Life Groups are small groups for middle & high school students. These groups are made up of 5-8 students (same gender) that meet weekly with a caring adult leader. Life Groups are a perfect place for you to form great friendships with other students your age, build relationships with adult leaders and learn more about God and grow closer to Him. Your group will be encouraged to establish accountability with each other, have consistent personal quite times, get involved in ministry, and participate in service projects.

What does a typical night look like?

Each Life Group will look different, but a typical night will look something like this: welcome / snacks / hang out / Bible study / discussion / prayer. Being involved in a Life Group will be an awesome time to grow closer to God; what better way to do that than by reading and studying the Bible? Every Life Group will choose their study topic from the provided LIVE Curriculum. Studies include: prayer, following Jesus, making good decisions, purity, having healthy relationships, studying the Bible, dealing with temptation, living in godly community and more.

When and where do they meet?

Life Groups meet in host homes on Sunday evenings from 12:30-1pm. Meeting in the music room at the church creates a warm, friendly atmosphere for sharing life together.

What about my leader?

The Gathering has incredible, screened and trained adult volunteers who are ready to serve and teach middle & high school students. The Gathering leaders are there to encourage, teach, guide, and help you strengthen your walk with Christ. It may turn out to be the most significant relationship of your middle & high school years.

  2. Respect your Life Group leader. They are giving you their time because they WANT to minister to you.
