Real Life Groups
We desire for everyone who comes to Life Church of Clarksville to not only participate in large group environments (e.g. the Sunday morning Worship) but also to be actively involved in smaller (real life) groups. Relationships are a priority at Life Church, and though relationships can be messy, we believe small groups can offer the benefits of authentic community: encouragement, accountability, connection and fun. Ultimately, we believe sustaining life change occurs through small groups. Here are the top reasons why:
You will have the opportunity to study the Bible together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. Real Life groups offer a good place to ask questions.
You will have the opportunity to develop deeper friendships with other people who will walk beside you on your journey as a follower of Christ.
You will have the opportunity to find some answers and support regarding the needs in your life through group prayer.
You will have the opportunity to share what’s going on...what’s good, what’s bad, and how you need help in a time of change or crisis.
You will have the opportunity to demonstrate the New Testament example of community. Early followers of Christ gathered in homes, shared meals, read the Word, prayed, worshiped and helped one another (Acts 2:42-47, 5:42).
You will have the opportunity to serve others by bearing their burdens, meeting their needs and stepping out beyond your own issues.
You will have the opportunity to move from simply being a spectator to being a participant.
A small group consists of 10 to12 individuals who have committed to meet weekly. In spite of our hectic and busy lifestyles, we carve out time each week to be with other people. We offer many different types of groups to fit your needs, including those for people who are new in their faith, for military wives, etc. ¨We have some groups that meet Wednesdays for shorter periods of time that cover specific topics you may be dealing with.
