Life Groups

Find Your Support System Better Together

Continuing the momentum of Rooted, Life Groups are the path to move forward together in a unified way toward intentionally living out the rhythms of community demonstrated in the first church. A Life Group is a small group who choose to meet regularly. They are an authentic community that provides acceptance and support while challenging each member to discover and live out their God-given destiny.

Our Group is Our Family

After waiting three years to adopt our son, Miles, we were left stranded in Ghana not knowing when we were coming home, and if Miles was coming with us. Feeling baffled, angry, and hopeless, we immediately texted our life group. The text message traveled the 6,000 miles to Indiana and, within a few minutes, our phones were blowing up with prayers. Our life group jumped into action.

This group functions as our family (both our families live out of state), so when we were stuck, our group bridged the gap between us and God and unceasingly pounded on the door of heaven on our behalf. When we found ourselves at our lowest point, our group carried us. Over the next few weeks, they mowed our lawn, got our mail, sent us encouraging messages, and even gave us money so we could afford to wait it out. When we finally got to come home, they were at the airport welcoming us with smiles, hugs, and tears of joy. And, if that weren’t enough, we came home to a fully stocked fridge and a house full of celebratory balloon booby traps.

When our faith faltered, our life group’s faith was at its strongest. They carried us to the finish line of our long adoption journey. When we needed to see it most, God’s faithfulness manifested itself through this group of people. Our life group saved the day.

Leader Resource Guide

The Prayer Toolbox is a reference guide providing prayer ideas to refresh, renew, and inspire your prayer life, so you can grow ever closer to God.

Before diving in, the most important thing to remember is that God loves you. No matter what you've done (or haven't done), no matter how much you've prayed (or haven't prayed), He loves you all the same. We hope this can be a helpful tool for when you're feeling like you're stuck in a prayer rut.

When someone's primary needs go beyond what you can provide, we recommend the following resources: visiting the Grace Care Center, meeting with a member from our prayer ministry, scheduling a care appointment, or meeting with a staff member for a counseling referral.
