LifeGroups

We aren't meant to do life alone!  LIFEGroups are designed to help us connect and know we BELONG as part of God's family. Groups meet regularly to study the Bible and to care and pray for each other. LIFEGroups help us carry out the Discipleship Essentials of Worship, Grow, Serve, Give, and Reach.

The 4 key markers of our LIFEGroups:
- Learning and living out the Bible

- Intentional Relationships and Accountability
- Fellowship and Care
- Evangelism and Service

Below is more information on groups and how to get connected. For questions, contact: michael@churchonbayshore.org.

WHEN

Most LIFEGroups meet on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings. A few groups meet at other times during the week. 


Check the list of groups below, grouped by meeting time, to see what may be a good connection for you.

LIFEGroups meet on-campus and offer a Zoom option for those who need to connect online.

 

Groups also meet during the week off-campus for gatherings, socials, Bible study and prayer.

WHERE

We have LIFEGroups for any age or stage of life. We want everyone connected in a group where they can grow as a disciple and experience the fellowship of the Body of Christ.

 

Our LIFEGroup leaders are church members who are committed to see people growing in worship and faith.
