What is a LIFEgroup?
Simply defined, a LIFEgroup is a group of 4-12 people who meet weekly or bi-monthly to encourage and care for one another. We believe intentional relationships are they key to sustained spiritual growth. That's why LIFEgroups are such an important part of our discipleship strategy. In a LIFEgroup, people study God's Word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another and are missed if they don't show up. Practically speaking, there will never be a way for Living Branch staff to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That's why we place such a high premium on group life. It's how we minister effectively at Living Branch.
Frequently asked questions...
What should I expect?
The goal of joining a group is to grow in your faith around people that can support you in taking your next steps.

Is childcare provided?
Many of our groups offer childcare. Some groups will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. Make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare.
How often do LIFEgroups meet?
Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some choose to meet every week, while others meet bi-weekly or monthly.
Where do LIFEgroups meet?
Groups meet at Living Branch, homes, restaurants and coffee shops all across the Northern Montgomery County. We will help you find a group that best suits your location.
What will my group do?
Each group leader decides what their group will focus on. Some groups are interest based, meaning they do something focused on a particular subject. Other groups do Bible studies and follow a video curriculum, while others choose Bible studies from noted Bible scholars. Some of our groups are recovery focused and help deal with the hurts, habits and hang-ups of life.
