WHAT HAPPENS AT A LIFE GROUP MEETING? ▼
You’ve probably seen Life Groups meeting and not even realized it. A Life Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Life Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in Life Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.
HOW OFTEN DOES A LIFE GROUP MEET? ▼
Our Life Groups meet for three semesters a year— spring, summer and fall. During the semester, most groups meet once a week. Life Groups are meant to bring people together, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group. Find one that fits your schedule by searching the directory.
WHERE DO LIFE GROUPS MEET? ▼
Life Groups happen throughout the St. Louis region wherever the leader and members find most convenient. You can search by location near you in the Life Group directory.
HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL LIFE GROUP STAY TOGETHER? ▼
Most Life Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE? ▼
Childcare varies from group to group. Many groups do provide childcare so connect with the group leader(s) to find out if childcare is provided.
WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY? ▼
The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in Life Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!

WHAT ARE THE LIFE GROUP SEMESTERS? ▼
We have three life group semesters - spring, summer and fall. In light of the Bible's teaching on sabbath and rhythms of life, we rest between each semester. This gives a healthy reset and allows people to switch groups or new people to join. Groups that want to continue through these breaks are welcome to. We also observe 21 DAYS OF PRAYER
church-wide each January and August.
