Life groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why life groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
FALL LIFE GROUPS LAUNCH
HOSTING A LIFE GROUP
Hosting a life group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your life group successful through Host Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a life group host you get to play an important role in that process.

FINDING A LIFE GROUP
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.
Our life groups meet for three semesters a year—fall, spring and summer. During the semester, most groups meet once a week. Life groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
Life groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Life groups happen throughout Orlando.
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. The spring semester is 10 weeks long, the summer semester is 6 weeks long, and the fall semester is 10 weeks long.
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
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!
