The day small group life ceases to be a nice option that gets pushed out by other things, we begin to experience its potential. Life Group is not a class or a study. We admit that we can not do it alone, so we choose Life Group to practice together for “the game of life.” While learning from the experience of others, we discover that no one else can do it for us. We must work it into our own hearts, so we choose the four “life-giving practices” as a way of life.
- Through the practice of life-giving prayer, we’re becoming walking-worshipers.
- Through the practice of life-giving truth, we’re being changed from the inside out.
- Through the practice of life-giving relationships,we’re experiencing real connection with each other and God’s healing power in our lives.
- Through the practice of life-giving impact, we’re keeping focused on what matters most, people finding Jesus.
In Life Group, we focus on the grace that invites us to try again, instead of self-condemnation. We seek to be honest, instead of pretending. We share only about our own wrongs, not the issues of others. We pray for each other, rather than give advice. We don’t expect our humanness to be cured. We’re learning to walk with God in the midst of it!
