The early church met in people’s homes and Jesus taught the disciples in a small group setting. Life groups are opportunities for fellowship, evangelism, and spiritual growth in a small group setting at a convenient time and place.

Fellowship is one of the primary goals in life groups. They are a chance to get to know people in a deeper way, while studying God’s word. Recognizing that relationships and learning happen better in small group settings, life groups are a way to establish solid relationships and grow in knowledge of the Bible and other topics.  Host homes are in various locations in Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean counties. This will also be a chance to get to know others in the church in a more intimate setting. Groups come together to study varied courses and curriculum.
