A Life Group is a relational group of 8-30 people that gathers regularly for the purpose of encouraging one another to mature as followers of Jesus.
Life Group meetings have a relaxed, come-as-you-are atmosphere. They are open to anyone to participate, regardless of spiritual background or experience. While there is no commitment required to participate in a Life Group, group members are encouraged to attend regularly and to participate intentionally so that they can fully experience a Life Group community.
Life Group enrollment is coordinated by church staff and is open year-round.
We are a NEW Life Group that will be meeting for the first time together this September! We are a co-ed group that welcomes anyone to participate, including parents with children as CHILDCARE WILL BE AVAILABLE during all large group meetings. All meetings will take place at the church building after Sunday service.
Leaders of this Group: Constance Ervins, Erin Kim, Jacqueline Sugihara, Michael Sugihara, and Tara Song

What does it look like for White followers of Jesus to engage in a multiethnic community? God calls us to be a reconciled body, seeking justice and righteousness, and loving our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. As White people (who have benefited from being in the racial group that has dominated all others for centuries), we have a unique responsibility and call to learn.
What is our role? What should we be doing to help bring shalom? We have created this NEWLY FORMED group to explore such questions and to call upon God for transformation and direction. Whether you’re just starting to learn about your whiteness or you’ve been on this journey for awhile, this group will work to learn together and to hear God’s call for us at New Community.
