What Are L.I.F.E. Groups?
A L.I.F.E. Group is a small gathering of people that meet on a regular basis to “do life” together. There is no way to develop the deep loving relationships Christ calls us to, by only spending 2 hours together on a Sunday morning. We need each other throughout the week in a smaller setting to help each other follow Jesus, and love one another well. L.I.F.E groups are an effective way to personally connected to the church community and to learn how to grow in faith and become more like Christ. Our L.I.F.E. groups strive to have the the following characteristics:
- Love – “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13:35
- Involvement – “From him the whole body, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” – Eph 4:16
- Fellowship – “They joined in fellowship and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…” – Acts 2:46
- Evangelistic – “And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” – Acts 2:47

The Hitchcock Life Group meets on the second and fourth Sundays at the home of Les & Kathy Hitchcock. This group is comprised mainly of couples and widows. We focus on getting to know one another and discussing how we can become better disciples and how we can make disciples.
In this group we are looking at the three aspects of the Great Commission:
Go: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations
Baptize: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
Teach: teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you
We will ask ourselves this question: Are we engaged in all three?

The CK Church Building Life Group meets on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month from 6:00-7:30 PM. This Life Group serves two purposes. The first is to develop a close knit community of those who regularly meet. The second purpose is to act as a welcoming ambassador to any visitors or members who desire to worship at the building on Sunday night. For that reason, the Lords Supper is available to anyone who desires to take communion on Sunday evening. The group is focused on spiritual enrichment of the regular members, but is concerned with the health & well being of the congregation as a whole.
A typical group meeting begins with a light meal, continues with light hearted sharing time, progresses into a meaningful spiritual discussion, and concludes with a “Needs” based call for prayer. Even though the formal group meeting ends at 7:30 PM, fellowship often continues until 8:00 PM.
Meals range from simple finger foods to the occasional full fledged potluck. “Sharing Time” is intended to provide a forum to discover “Whats New” in each other lives. “Meaningful Discussion” includes Bible topics, Current Congregational Issues, and Outside Books. “Needs Based Call for Prayer” focuses our attention on the “Joys & Hurts” each of us are experiencing.
The Focus of the group is to become more caring by spending quality time together in as group setting, as well as staying in close touch with one another the rest of the week. Journaling is one method we are trying, to develop and maintain close ties with one another. By recording each other needs and our responses, we find that regular prayer and communication is enhanced.
Another focus of the group is to be Service Minded. The group desires to serve the needs of the congregation, especially the elderly. Visitation, Fellowship, & Friendship are the specific methods of service employed by this group. Other opportunities to help are also pursued on a case by case basis.
