Life groups are meeting throughout the week in homes around Bay City and Van Vleck. The easiest way to find a life group? Go with a friend to their group and join in. You may also sign up to be in a life group on Sunday morning on the organ side of the Sanctuary, in the Welcome Center, or in your Sunday School classes. If you’d like to sign up online or want more information about our Life Groups, you may call or email Melissa Cook in the church office to help find the right Life Group for you.
Jesus calls His followers to lay down their lives and to follow Him as His disciples. Real relationships are primary in the design of the church which Jesus established for His disciples as they live out their lives in connection to Him and to one another. A common practice in modern Christianity is for most to believe in Him for salvation while only a few follow Him as disciples. There is no place in scripture where Jesus gave that option. We want to live in obedience to the commands of Christ and to follow the model He gave to us of intentionally doing life together in order to be disciples who make disciples.
The purpose of a Life Group is to provide a relational environment where we love each other earnestly in order to make disciples who can make disciples. In a Life Group we will meet together regularly in order to encourage one another, to teach and admonish one another, to confess to, pray for, and bear one another’s burdens, and to stir up love and good works among each other.
