LIFEgroups

The Lifegroup ministry is designed to help people form strong, meaningful relationships in a small group setting. The groups foster Christian community allowing believers to spur one another on to love, good works and spiritual growth!

LIFE is manifested in the small group setting through:
L – Learning as we study the scriptures together,
I – Intercession as we pray for one another bearing one another’s burdens,
F – Fellowship as we participate together in the body life of Christ, and
E – Encouragement as we lift one another up in our times of trial and testing.

Groups meet twice a month in homes and are diverse. Groups range from young adult, young married with children, multi-generational, women only and older saints.

Groups are strongly encouraged to do service projects in the community– group members will develop stronger bonds as they serve together.

LIFEgroups study topics such as the Book of Acts, Biblical Community, Old Testament Characters, and Spiritual Disciplines. Topics are continually changing.

If you are interested in connecting to a specific small group that meets your special need, use the link provided to sign up or contact Pastor John LoRusso at jrlorusso@cedarcrestbfc.org or call (610) 432-2200.
