Why should I become involved?
In our high-tech, low-touch culture, we find ourselves searching for a place to belong. Issues of LIFE such as relationships, money, self-discipline, insecurity and fear continually come after us, making peace and significance hard to obtain.
We weren’t meant to walk through LIFE alone; and true growth, spiritual and personal, often takes place in loving, supportive, grace-giving, truth-telling relationships – like those found in LIFE•Groups.
Ontario Free LIFE•Groups are small, safe groups of people that help each other as they do this thing called “LIFE.” They’re asking questions about walking with Christ, participating in practical discussions, and learning how to apply God’s truth in their lives in relevant ways.
LIFE change happens when we take the time to connect with people who really care about us. Sharing our stories, challenges and victories allows us to be real.
God designed us to worship, learn and grow individually and together in community. The idea of “one another” is used over 50 times in the New Testament to describe how we are to live LIFE together as believers.
“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” Romans 12:4-5 (NIV)
Who can join a LIFE•Group?
