LIFE groups connect people, build relationships and model what it is like to live as a believer.

What to Expect

lifegroup-logoLIFE = L (Learning Together) I (Involve Everyone) F (Finding Others) E (Emerge for Ministry)

We all desire to be connected with others, to have friends and do life with others. LIFE groups are where you can meet others, learn to live God’s Word and have fun. The groups meet are various days throughout the week, in homes and usually in the evenings. There are groups for men, women, mixed ages and mixed genders. Some of the groups meet mainly for prayer, some for study, some for fellowship and service. There is a group that is ready to welcome you.

With Stacie Cox 612-384-1651

Modeled after our LOL4G: Legacy of Love for Girls program, where we are training up our girls in an environment where Christ-like love is flourishing so they can go into the world and create a legacy of love modeled after Christ’s unconditional and sacrificial love, we wish to provide the women of the church the same opportunity.  Through LOL4W we provide an opportunity for women to connect with their Christian peers while we encourage and equip them with leadership skills that will allow them to showcase Christ’s exuberant love in their homes, workplace, and in service. This is a great opportunity for our LOL4G team members to come together, but our meetings are open to ALL women who wish to develop a living legacy of loving and leading in a lavish way.

As a group, we are already planning to go Christmas caroling this year and the 30forFreedom race next year.
