A powerful expression of biblical community.
This is a setting in which people connect with a small group of friends who are mutually committed to caring for one another, growing in their faith, and impacting others for the cause of Christ. We invite you to find a group of friends that live near you so you can join them in “sharing life together.”
We believe that growing to become more like Jesus happens best in the context of relationship. That’s why we strategically use our LifeGroups as the major component in the Building Up aspect of our mission.

LifeGroup study guide –“I Am the Bread of Life”
Stepping In: Getting things started!
1 – What’s your favorite restaurant or your perfect meal?
2 – Why do you think eating with others helps deepen the relationship?
3 – Who, from history (other than Jesus), would you like to share a meal with, and why?
Building Up: What is God Saying?
1 – Read John 6:5-9. How does Philip’s perspective remind you of your own sometimes?
2 – Read John 6:10-13. What are some of your favorite lessons or take-a-ways from Jesus’ miracle of feeding thousands of people with one sack lunch? How could we be more like the little boy who gave up his lunch in this story?
3 – Read John 6:25-35. Why did the people struggle to understand what He was talking about? Bread was the main source of food for people in that day. How does that help us get a handle on what Jesus was trying to say?
4 – Read John 6:53-58. What does Jesus mean by this? It can be seen as a reference to communion in some ways, but what else is He talking about here?
5 – Read John 6:66-69. People stopped following Jesus after all this, but His main group of followers stuck close. What reason do they give for not abandoning Him? How does that encourage you to be in your Bible more?
6 – Read Revelation 3:20. How does Jesus’ personal request to come and eat with us affect the way we look at Him and our relationship with Him each and every day?
Living Out: How do I obey?
1- When Jesus said, “I am the bread of life,” He was saying, “I am everything you need.” How does that truth change the way you look at:
- Your relationships?
- Your work/school?
- Your finances?
- Your struggles?
- Your future?
2 – Your group will be doing a service project. So, make a plan for your LifeGroup to do this together, and get it on the calendar.
