Creating a Connected Community

Is at the Heart of CenterPoint.

What is a Life Group?

Life groups come in different sizes and function in a variety of ways.  Some are more synonymous with a bible study group. Others are aligned to a home church model. Some meet weekly while others meet once a month or less. The best one is the one that works best for the group members and the church in general. 

A life group is more than a simple bible study. It is a group of likeminded individuals that come together to share life with one another. This makes finding a group that fits the needs of the individual highly important.  Ideally, they will have several things in common.  That is why we have a group for singles, a group for new moms, and a group for young married couples, etc.   

Our goal is to develop close relationships with other Christians that can be there to support and strengthen one another. We need accountability partners as well.  Someone that can lovingly get in your business when it is needed without causing an offense.

It is more than a bible study. The life group is an intentional gathering where likeminded people come together to do life with one anotherThey develop relationships with one another, support and mentor one anotherIt functions as a home church within the larger umbrella of CenterPoint church.  Group leaders take responsibility as a type of under shepherd to the groupThe leaders are accountable to pastoral staff and keep the pastor informed of any needs or concerns within the group. 

Previous Life Group Series

CenterPoint is committed to providing Life Group leaders and church members alike the valuable resources they need to disciple others. In Fall 2023 most of our life groups will be participating in the “Make Disciples Challenge.” All the resources needed for this program will be available right here on our website.  In addition, we will be adding other valuable resources from time to time so check back frequently.  Now members and group leaders alike can just click the button below to access our disciple challenge curriculum.
