HAVE MORE  QUESTIONS?

What is a Life Group?

Life Groups are made up of 6-12 people who meet once a week to answer one simple question, "How is your life with God?" This is a transformational group focused on personal, relational and spiritual growth.

Why join a life group?

By focusing on this one question each week, Life Group members learn to be aware of God's presence on a daily basis. It's an opportunity to openly and honestly engage with different people from varying backgrounds about your faith without the pressure of curriculum or homework.

What's the difference between a Life Group and a Sunday School class, Bible Study, Small Group or Reunion Group?

Life Groups do not follow a curriculum and they are not "forever groups." Life Groups will meet for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, participants aren't obligated to attend again. Groups are not formed based on age, gender, experiences or interests. Simply find a date and time that works for you, and that is your Life Group. Our hope is that this format brings together new people to build new relationships.

What is the commitment required?

We ask that you commit to 4  straight weeks. If after 4 weeks you feel like the Life Group isn't right for you, that's okay. If we do life groups again in the future, you're not under any obligation to participate OR feel free to try another group in the future. If you know you will miss more than 1 of your Life Group meetings within the first 4 weeks, now might not be a good time for you to join a Life Group. We encourage you to wait until we do life groups again. 

Is there homework?

Nope. The only question you answer in Life Group is "How is your life with God?" There is no deep bible study, devotion or book of any kind.

Where and when do Life Groups meet? How often?

Life Groups meet once a week in a variety of settings. Some meet in the church, some meet in leader homes and some may meet in coffee shops or restaurants.  Simply pick the time, day and location that works best for your schedule and needs.

How do I sign up for a Life Group?

 You can browse the times that work for you and sign up for a group in the Fireside Room at Kingswood or email Pastor Josh.

Do I have to be a Kingswood member to join a life group?

No. Life Groups are for all people and all backgrounds. Feel free to invite your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors to sign-up!

Will childcare be provided?

Certain groups will have childcare provided. The descriptions will indicate so.

Who leads the Life Groups?

Each Life Group will have one facilitator responsible for meeting time and location, attendance and communication. 

Who will be in my Life Group?

The people who will be in your Life Group are the people who select the same meeting day, time and location as you. Our hope is that you will build relationships with people who you may not have met in other circumstances.

Can I invite friends into my Life Group?

You can invite friends into your Life Group as long as they can attend the full four weeks. The Life Group will be close after the first week so that all members of the group can feel comfortable sharing without new people coming in and out throughout the four weeks

What if I can no longer participate in my Life Group?

If you decide that Life Groups aren't for you, the time or day is no longer working or other issues with your group arise, that’s okay. Simply let your Life Group leader or Pastor Josh know that it's not working out for you. We'd be happy to help you find a different Life Group or maybe a different small group format that works for you.
