Life Groups

Now, more than ever, we need community and connection.  Life groups are a NEW way that we can stay connected to God and the Church even while we are not worshiping together and gathering in large groups.  
Life groups are small groups of people who covenant to journey together through a season of life, help one another grow in holiness of heart and life, and equip one another to participate in God‘s mission in the world. Group members attend to the ways that God is at work in their lives, agreeing to do all in their power to help one another grow in faith, hope, and love.  
Please indicate your interest by filling out this form. For full participation in this fall’s life groups, please sign up by August 27.

 

Why Life Groups?

Our faith is not meant to be lived out alone. We grow through relationship with God in our community. In small groups we learn from one another, grow in our understanding of God, and can develop a sense of community belonging. Now, more than ever, we need community and connection.  Small groups are a way that we can stay connected to God and the Church even while we are not worshiping together and gathering in large groups. Are you being called to consider participating in a Life Group at NRUMC?

What is a Life Group exactly?

A life group is a small group of up to 15 people who covenant to journey together through a season of life. The purpose of the life group is to help one another grow in holiness of heart and life, and to equip one another to participate in God‘s mission in the world. Group members come together for the purpose of attending to the ways that God is at work in their lives, agreeing to do all in their power to help one another grow in faith, hope, and love.

 

How does it work?

Life groups meet together virtually or physically-distanced, following NRUMC’s safe gathering guidelines (less than 10 people meeting outdoors when possible and with face coverings).  The rhythm of each group will be determined by its members. Ideally, groups will meet once or twice per month.  Groups can decide to meet in cycles: September – November and January – April, with an option to meet May – August; or a group may decide to continue to meet together monthly indefinitely.

What is the time committment?

Groups will launch September 2020 and may follow the above timeline.  Meetings will typically be 1-1.5 hours.
