Due to the unique season we are living in, the groups will mainly be meeting through a digital platform such as Zoom. However, each group will also decide throughout the season when to hold safe in-person meetings. Regardless of the format, we are expectant to build community!
NOTE ABOUT SPRING 2021 REGISTRATION: All Life Group registration and placements will be managed by NewCom staff. The descriptions of each Life Group below are provided for your reference once you find out what group you are placed into. (Signing up directly for a particular group is not available this season.)
A Life Group is a community group of 10-35 people that gathers regularly to encourage one another by having meaningful conversations about life and God. Life Groups are smaller manifestations of the larger church. This is where we desire for individuals to experience authentic community as disciples of Jesus, encouraging one another to go deeper in their faith to experience the fullness of life. Life Groups participate in activities such as Bible study, spiritual discussion, service, fellowship, and prayer
While the meeting schedule varies from group to group, a typical Life Group meets weekly. Each week, a Life Group will either meet all together as a large group and/or in smaller groups of 3-7 people (Micro-Groups). For more information about Micro-Groups, click here.
Building community across digital platforms has proven to be a challenge. And yet– our Life Groups are STILL experiencing community! In fact, we have learned that those who attend regularly and participate intentionally have had the greatest access to experiencing authentic community. And so this spring, we STRONGLY encourage anyone interested in joining a Life Group to also commit to participating in a Micro-Group!
