Life Groups offer a path for both long-time St. Michael members and new Christ followers to grow closer to our Living Savior - and to connect with others in our church fellowship. St. Michael Life Groups are face-to-face gatherings of 6-12 people who meet regularly for the purpose of studying God’s Word and encouraging each other in personal spiritual growth.
Life Groups promote a unique sense of belonging within our church – a feeling that one is truly connected to a life-giving community that empowers us to be the body of Christ. Once connected, many of us have been nurtured into a deeper walk with Jesus through prayer, Bible study, and Christian sharing of life experiences. Life Groups also provide for individual and confidential prayer support, a place to build friendships, and a situation for healthy accountability and encouragement.
St. Michael is currently home to about 15 active Life Groups. Most gatherings are open to new participants – and specific topics, times and locations can be found in bulletins, newsletters and by contacting Pastor Dave or the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to ask any Elder for more information, or to facilitate an introduction to a group leader. You don't need to be a Bible scholar to join; in fact these groups are designed to help Christians explore and understand God’s Word in comfort and fellowship.
We encourage all members to prayerfully consider joining a Life Group. Long time member or new Christ seeker, Life Groups are a uniquely effective way to learn more about each other and the God who has loved each of us with His very life!
Expect to be invited to join a Life Group sometime this year, as this ministry continues to grow in size and spiritual maturity.
AND LET US CONSIDER HOW WE MAY SPUR ONE ANOTHER ON TOWARD LOVE AND GOOD DEEDS. LET US NOT GIVE UP MEETING TOGETHER, AS SOME ARE IN THE HABIT OF DOING, BUT LET US ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER - AND ALL THE MORE AS YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.
