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 – Week 3: “Others Matter”
Stepping In: Getting things started!
1- Share any answers to prayer from your past week with the group.
2- What was an early idea of God or Jesus you had that you’ve since found out wasn’t accurate?
Watch Video: “Colossians” Week 3
3 – How does the explanation of Christ IN me vs. Christ AND me help you?
Building Up: What is God saying?
1 – Read Colossians 1:24. How does JOY and SUFFERING even go together? Why do you think most of the NT writers (Paul, James, Peter) talked so much about joy & suffering?
2 – Read Colossians 1:25-26. We are managers of God’s amazing gift of salvation. Our “ministry” is to share with people what God had kept as a mystery for so long. What can we do to be faithful stewards of this gift/message?
3 – Read Colossians 1:27. Why is this such a powerful verse?
4 – Read Colossians 1:28-29. What does this verse say about our mission? What does this verse say about our effort?
5 – Read Colossians 2:1-3. In order to be successful, we need to set goals. What did Paul’s goals look like and how could we make them our goals each and every day?
6 – Read Colossians 2:4-5. What are some ways we can be careful not to be deceived by false teaching?
Living Out: How do I obey?
1 – Take a moment and each of you make a Top Ten list of people you want to share Christ with. Pray for these people every day and ask God to give you opportunities to impact their lives and invite them to meet Jesus.
2 – As a group, share your prayer requests and take the time to lift each other up in prayer.
3 – As a LifeGroup, you’ll be doing a service project together. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to serve those in our Valley. When you come up with a plan, please let us know about it by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
