Life Group

First Baptist has a small groups ministry that we refer to as LifeGroups. A LifeGroup is a group of up to twelve people who meet monthly to experience the love of God and grow in relationship with each other. LifeGroups also reach out in mission to the world while seeking and welcoming members so new LifeGroups may be formed.

LifeGroups have four basic components:

  • A time of “centering”, or “focusing”, or “worship”, usually with a devotional thought or a song. We all lead busy lives, and need a chance to “calm down” enough to enter the presence of God.

  • A time of “learning”, or “discipleship”, with a discussion around our Abiding scripture.  This helps us stay connected to what God is trying to say to us.
  • A time of “sharing”, and “prayer”, where in an attitude of “love and caring”, we share our burdens and joys, and pray for one another. This develops over time into a wonderful place to share confidentially, trusting the group to build each other up.

  • A time of considering “mission”, or “service”. It could be something as simple as all signing a card to someone who’s been sick, or going together as a group to the hospital or to a nursing home to visit someone, or deciding to help out with a mission project.

LifeGroups have the added bonus of a time of “food, fellowship, and fun”, where a dessert/snack is shared, or even a simple meal, and folks can visit and enjoy being together.

Each LifeGroup has designated leaders, and yet, leadership can also be shared, i.e. someone may volunteer to bring a dessert, or lead the “centering” time, etc.

LifeGroups lift up the truth that Jesus Christ is in the midst of each group, and offers us the strength and healing we all need. Christ is the one who provides the power and vision necessary to live the Christian life. When LifeGroups come together, the focus is on experiencing Jesus in every part of our meeting.
