LIFE GROUPS & ELECTIVES

Our desire is that every person would be welcomed and connected in community, be growing together in relationship with Jesus, and be living for God and living for people.
 
Life Groups & Life Electives are some of the primary ways we accomplish this goal. They are for adults of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity.

LIFE GROUPS

What to Expect

Overview

Life Groups are casual, conversational groups. These groups are similar to what other churches may call "Cell Groups", "Home Groups", or "Small Groups". They involve a Bible Study component as well as time spent in fellowship (a.k.a. hanging out), discussion and conversation, and prayer. Leaders in Life Groups facilitate discussion rather than teach like they would in a Life Elective.

 

Location

Groups meet in homes throughout Burlington and surrounding areas.

Size

Life Groups vary in size, but most are around 8-14 people.

Available Groups

This January, our church family is participating in "Everyone Everywhere", where we are meeting in small groups around the city for 3 weeks in a row to study the same series.

Regular Life Groups will resume in February, so check back for details.
