Group leaders

Leading a Life Group

Leading a Life Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about investing in others by giving them a place to connect, grow and serve! We believe people’s lives are changed one season at a time, and as a Life Group leader, you get to play a vital role in that process. Simply fill out the form below and we'll reach out for next steps!

Life Groups meet weekly during three seasons: fall, winter, and spring. During the fall season, adult groups will be united in what they study/learn based on the Sunday message series. Study material will be provided on the website. For the winter and spring season, study material is at the discretion of the GL, but must be approved by Pastor Amos. Please fill out the form below to submit your material options for winter and spring seasons. Please note: Message series, Promise Principle, & Designed are all preapproved curriculums.

Fun Icebreaker Ideas:

  1. Favorite food?
  2. If you had a super-power what would it be and why?
  3. Tell two truths and one lie and have people guess which one is the lie
  4. Share favorite vacation
  5. On Zoom … (1) Have them find a hat in their house and put it on. Tell everyone why you love that hat. (2) Have everyone get an item in their house that would help describe their day.
