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:
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.
