LIFE GROUPS 2012-13
Circles are better than rows
What is a Life Group and when do they meet?
Life Groups are small, bi-weekly meetings of no more than eight couples (or individuals) who gather for Bible study, prayer and home fellowship. With some exceptions, groups typically gather at a host leader’s home on Sunday evenings to coincide with Covenant Kidz and Outbound youth ministry programs.
How do I join?
Life Group leaders will be available during the Life Group Fair on Sunday, September 16 from 5:30-7PM at NCF. You may want to join a group based on location, study topics or if you’d simply like to team up with friends. If you’re unable to attend the Fair, contact the church office for a list of leaders, times and locations.
Is childcare provided?
Free, on-site childcare for infants and toddlers is available at NCF from 6PM – 8PM. The Covenant Kidz children’s ministry is available for children age 4 through 5th Grade. Life Group families will drop off and register children beginning at 6PM, then proceed to the host home.
Are study materials available?
This Fall, Pastor Brett will launch a special sermon series corresponding with NCF’s 40th ministry year titled, Navigating the Wilderness: Through Many Dangers, Toils and Snares. The messages will flow from studies in the Old Testament books of Numbers and Deuteronomy and practically explore God’s design for seasons of intense trial and God-directed wandering. Discussion questions and strategic prayer challenges for the nations will be available for download at NewCovenantFellowship.net. The first set of notes will be available two weeks prior to the first Life Group.
What does a Life Group Leader do?
No special gifting or training is needed to lead a group, and your home does not necessarily need to be the meeting location. Leaders are encouraged to facilitate the sermon conversation or book study, organize a time of prayer and coordinate snacks or refreshments within members of your group. We encourage you to ask current or past life group leaders about the general flow and character of the exciting home-based meetings.
