What happens at a Life Group meeting?

You’ve probably seen Life Groups meeting and not even realized it. A Life Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Life Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in Life Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation, and request prayer.

How often does a Life Group meet?

Our Life Groups meet for two semesters a year—Fall/Spring. During the semester, most groups meet once a week while others meet bimonthly and once a month. Life Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

Where do Life Groups meet?

Life Groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, office buildings, and church. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Life Groups happen throughout the Middle Georgia area. 

How long does a typical Life Group stay together?

Most Life Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.

Is there childcare available?

At Real Life Church, we believe that Life Group members should not miss the opportunity to participate in a Life Group due to the financial burden that finding childcare could cause. Some of our Life Groups offer childcare.

What if I don’t like the first group I try?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select up to two groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in Life Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
