Did you know you were meant to live in community with others?

Life is not meant to be lived alone. No one really likes loneliness. There’s a reason for that; because God created us to thrive through relationships with others. You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at First Church, we encourage you to get connected in a LifeGroup.
At First Church, LifeGroups are 12-16 adults in the same stage of life who consistently meet in fellowship together to study, learn, encourage and support each other. We discuss scripture and other truths revealed each weekend in our worship time together. LifeGroups are also a place to belong; to really connect through following what the Bible says about loving and caring for one another. LifeGroups help provide a healthy, safe environment where you can be comfortable to share with others and provide the encouragement and accountability that we all need.
Truthfully, there is no way for the staff of First Church to personally minister to everyone within the body. That’s why LifeGroups are so important; it’s the best way we can minister effectively to our people individually.
LifeGroups are a vital part of who we are at First Church. It is our goal to have every member of our church involved in a LifeGroup. A LifeGroup is the best place for sustained life change to occur. We believe an intentional relationship with Jesus works best when you have intentional relationships with others who have the same goal—and a LifeGroup is the ideal place for that. LifeGroups meet for three 10-week sessions from late September through June, taking a break during the summer months.
With numerous groups to choose from, First Church has something for everyone. No matter your background or interests, there is LifeGroup that will help deepen your faith and support you on your life’s journey.
