Community Life Groups

Life Groups

We learn best in small groups, so at Lifepointe, we are committed to small groups that we call Life Groups. Life Groups are smaller communities of intentional relationships within Lifepointe that exist to provide a safe place to support, challenge, and encourage one another. Each Life Group encourages members to live a gospel-shaped and Christ-centered life. They are led by a trained and approved Life Group Leader and under the oversight of Lifepointe’s elders. Life Groups also serve as the primary place for the pastoral ministry of Lifepointe.


We believe our Life Groups reflect the heart of God for the church – Biblical life in gospel-centered intimate community. So it is both our desire and aim to see everyone at Lifepointe involved in a Life Group-studying the Scriptures and “doing life” together. 


There is no formula in how to pick and get involved with a Life Group. You may want to check out a couple of the Life Groups before deciding which group to join. We have found that once a person decides to get connected in a Life Group on a consistent basis; they find it a safe place where family-like relationships are developed.
