Life Groups is a small group program of 6 – 12 people meeting weekly for 60 – 75 minutes in homes to build relationships, grow spiritually, and serve others. An in-house curriculum guide is provided. Groups are formed by affinity (season in life).
“It is possible to sit in worship week after week, as well as a Sunday School class, and sing all the songs, pray all the prayers, nod in affirmation at all the right places, and never really grow spiritually at all,” said Alan Hitt, minister of Evangelism and Congregation Care at FUMC Coppell. “But you cannot be part of a weekly small group where members love each other, pray for each other, open up to each other, encourage each other and serve with each other, and not grow spiritually.”
