FIND A LIFE GROUP

You were not made to go through life on your own. God created us with a need to do life with other people. In order to live fully and reach our potential as mature disciples of Jesus, we must pursue community. Disciples grow as they are connected in relational environments that are centered around God's Word – the Bible. 

 

When you attend a Life Group, you will meet people who are just like you, dealing with everyday life. There will be a time for hanging out and getting to know each other. Then there will be a discussion time centered around Scripture and real life application.

 

Life Groups are offered throughout the week – some meet in homes and some meet at River Hills. We have planned them on the various days throughout the week with your schedule in mind. We want it to be possible for everyone to be able to attend a Life Group.

 

If you are interested in joining a Life Group, check out the list of groups below and contact the group leader to initiate the conversation. If you have further questions regarding Life Groups, please email Pastor Chip at chip@churchatriverhills.com
