This guide will hopefully answer all your questions!

What Is a LIFE Group?

A LIFE Group is a committed group of individuals who function as a smaller family within the larger church family, living out our church vision together in Christian community.

So what is our church vision and how does it shape our LIFE Groups?

The focus of the life group is based on the Gospel: discovering the Gospel, being transformed by the Gospel, and sharing the Gospel. We desire to grow in our relationship with God through scripture, prayer, and the Gospel community.
Discipleship is key to the Life group. It is a community that intentionally seeks to follow Jesus together by seeking to be transformed by the Gospel in our everyday life. Life groups meet regularly in homes or at church, and are also encouraged to meet in smaller same-sex discipleship groups as well. Commitment, care, vulnerability, authenticity, and mutual edification are all a part of discipleship.
Mission is also essential to a Life group. Life groups are not just inward focused social groups, but have the intention to reach out to friends, family, coworkers, neighbours and those in need through the power of the Gospel. Life groups seek to multiply by growing, splitting and sending people out.

LIFE Group Leadership and Content

LIFE Groups will be led by leaders and co-leaders who are entrusted to direct and nurture the group in the vision of Gospel, Discipleship and Mission.

Leaders will be discipled and nurtured by the overseeing leadership of elders and pastors.

Content and direction for all LIFE groups will be aligned with the overall church and congregational vision and ministry direction.

Our hope is to encourage and challenge one another through scripture readings/studies, corporate prayer, and fellowship so that we may grow deeper in relationship with God, with each other, and so that we can be equipped to share His truth with the world. Our interests are food, friendship, and bubble tea!

Wednesday Night Lifegroup

Our life group meets every Wednesday, usually at the Church however currently over Zoom. Most weeks our group strives to deepen our faiths through guided discussions by means of book studies and manuscript studies. Each month we spend at least one evening to have a time to meet somewhere more casual in smaller groups, where we have the opportunity to share deeper with each other and pray in depth for each other and as we gathering we hope to experience the spirit work among us. We hope and encourage all our life group member can take their deepened faith further each week and bring more light into each of their individual worlds among the people they work with, the people they see on a regular basis and to the people they cross paths with the rest of the days of the week. 
Wednesdays @ 7:30 PM

2-4-5 Lifegroup

As an Adult Life Group, we desire to be active pursuers of living out our faith in life. We strive to be supportive to all who join us in living life together! We encourage members to practice their Christian faith inside and outside the church. We hope to learn together, grow together, pray together, and experience God’s love and provisions together. We would like to share our Christian journey with those who are growing in their faith; our struggles, our joys, the ups and downs, successes and failures. 
Every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month
Kick-off: Saturday September 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the CCAC Parking Lot.

Naomi

This is an inter-generational women's small group, whose name is inspired by the story of Naomi and her daughter-in-law, Ruth.  It was not just their love for each other but their faith in God, at the center of their relationship, that gave them hope for the future.  We meet twice a month in order to encourage each other to grow in our faith, love and community across all of our life's stages and ages.  

Naomi Bible Study -- will held on the 1st Friday evening of every month (Zoom Online Meetings)
Naomi Connect -- will be held on the 3rd Saturday morning of each month (Socially Distanced In-Person Gatherings When Possible)

Family Fellowship

The Family Life Group is designed to serve families with children of all ages. We meet every 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 5-8pm (dinner included). Young children from ages 0-grade 2 have the option of joining Kidz Club from 6-8pm, while older children (grades 3 and above) are encouraged to join their parents once a month for an opportunity to study the Word together. Our goal is to build an intentional and gospel-centered community to glorify God through studying His Word and equipping parents for family discipleship, impacting generation after generation!
