Life Groups Logo

Life Groups are designed for students to:

  • Receive personal discipleship from individuals with spiritual maturity
  • Experience differing degrees of Christian community
  • Develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ by studying Scripture, asking questions, and engaging in discussions.

Each Life Group topic and description has been decided upon by the leader.

Life Groups aim to help students know, love, and serve Jesus Christ by providing personal settings focused on biblical study, spiritual disciplines, and faith integration.

Three types of Life Groups:


Biblical study life groups embrace and dig into the biblical story through making observations, interpretations, and developing applications of the Scriptures. Studying Scripture helps us gain insights into God, our relationship with others, and creation.


Spiritual discipline Life Groups focus on the use and practice of spiritual disciplines as a means for helping students be attentive to the Holy Spirit's work. Content is focused on the historical and biblical teaching of various spiritual disciplines and their function and purpose in ongoing spiritual formation.


Faith integration Life Groups expose students to foundational principles of Christian faith that inform a theology of life, work, and play. Students will learn healthy, holy rhythms that reflect the Holy Spirit's work in our life and community.

Please refer questions about attendance to the leader or to the Spiritual Formation Office

Life Group Season officially launches the week of September 9 and runs through November 15!
