Life groups

Your Life is Your Group

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 small 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 Small Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.

HOW OFTEN AND WHERE DO SMALL GROUPS MEET?
Most groups meet once a week for three semesters a year throughout the Austin Metro area—winter/spring, summer and fall. Small Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so it is still beneficial and encouraged to join a group even if you can’t attend regularly.

HOW LONG DOES A GROUP TYPICALLY STAY TOGETHER?
Most Life Groups meet for a semester to easily allow 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 to join groups easily and regularly.

IS CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.

I DIDN’T FEEL LIKE I FIT IN WITH THE FIRST GROUP. WHAT NOW?
We know that not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. We encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out different groups before the one that best suits you. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
