Life groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You'll never fully experience all that NWC has to offer until you connect in a Life group!
"Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ."
Life groups were vital to the church's growth then, and they are just as vital now.
What are the groups about?
Our groups are as varied as we are; group leaders use their gifts and passions to create a group that allows others to join with them in serving God. Whatever your age or interest -- Bible study, prayer, missions, business, running, you name it -- we've got a group that's just right for you, and they meet all over the city.
When can I join one?
New groups start three times a year - spring, summer, and fall semester. Most groups are open to new members throughout the semester. Find a group, contact the leader, and get going!
