Life Groups

 
lightstock_145365_small_user_7547407.jpg

The health of our community is measured by the quality of our relationships. At New Beginnings Community Church, we take relationships seriously.

In fact, one of our core values is: The health of our community is measured by the quality of our relationships.

Life Groups are a fundamental aspect of assisting our community in their growth in Christ. Life Groups approach this by cultivating a safe place where each person can take the next step in their walk of faith. We believe that this is best done in small gatherings of people with the opportunity to bond.

 

Characteristics of Life Groups

Groups of 6-12 people — meet in Bay Area homes, offices and/or restaurants

Groups get together regularly — usually meet once a week or every other week

All groups include:

  • fellowship — to help make connections that will last

  • sharing — often about how God is challenging each of us to respond to the Sunday message; in order to encourage personal growth

  • prayer — in order to support spiritual growth

  • acts of loving service — to demonstrate God’s love for the world

Two Types of Life Groups

Neighborhood Life Groups meet with time and location as a common point of gathering. These groups are open to everyone (i.e., – varied ages, marital status etc.). Folks commonly meet in homes in nearby neighborhoods, primarily to study the Sunday message.

Stage and Interest Life Groups gather around specific areas of life stages or interests. We have Life Groups for Men, Women, Young Adults, Married Couples, Families with Children, Singles, Single Moms, Single Parents, and Entrepreneurs. We are developing new ones for Spanish and Chinese speakers -- and for those going thru cancer, infertility, and grief/loss.

 

57 NBCC Life Groups meet all over the region, 30 of these are open to new members, and we are always starting more!

Leaders guide their Life Groups through meetings, keeping the group focused before the Lord and on the subject matter at hand. We are always looking for new Leaders.
