Getting connected at Central Church means participating in a Life Group. They provide a setting to build dynamic relationships and apply Biblical principles to your daily life. Life Groups allow Central to grow smaller as we grow larger.
What are Life Groups all about? Our groups are as varied as the people who attend Central are. Group leaders use their gifts and passions to create a community that allows others to join with them in serving God while participating in activities and events that are relevant to their interests. Whatever your age or interest-Bible study, cooking, prayer, missions, running, you name it-we’ve got a group that’s just right for you. Our Life Groups meet all over the city, so there’s one near you!
Were there Life Groups in the Bible? The book of Acts records the tremendous growth of the first church in the city of Jerusalem. Life Group meetings in homes were the foundation of the early church. Acts 5:42 tells us that the people met “in the temple courts” (large group worship) and “from house to house” (Life Group fellowship). Life Groups were vital to the church’s growth then, and they are just as vital now. You’ll never fully experience all that Central has to offer until you connect with a Life Group.
When can I join a Life Group? New groups start three times a year-spring, summer and fall semesters-with an exciting event called Rally Week, when we showcase all our groups. You don’t have to wait for Rally Week though, most groups are open to new members throughout the semester. Find a group, contact the leader and get going!
