Life Groups

Join a GVNAZ LIFE GROUP today!

Do you want to establish a core group of friends that know you by name, that care about the things you care about, that pray for you every week? Do you want to establish life-long connections with people of like mind and like faith? If so, then LIFE GROUPS are just the ticket. LIFE GROUPS allow you to make new friendships, connect personally with people who are on your same journey, eat, laugh, and support each other in significant ways. If you’re not a part of a LIFE GROUP yet, take advantage of this time.

LIFE GROUP sign-ups are on-going. Join a group today!

Life Group FAQs

What are Life Groups?
Life Groups are small groups of friends or acquaintances that meet in homes on convenient evenings. Some of the groups come together because the people share similar backgrounds; others form because people live close by. These groups will meet together weekly for coffee and conversation. We want to build upon the friendships we have.

Are Life Groups cliques?
Life Groups are not cliques at all. These groups are not mutually exclusive. It’s impossible for us to know all 750 people or more that call Grandview Nazarene their home. Life Groups gives us a chance to carry each other’s burdens and in so doing fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2).

Are Life Groups for everyone?
It is our aim to continue creating Life Groups until everyone that worships at Grandview Nazarene Church has a place to connect throughout the week. We will continue to add Life Groups until this is a reality.

Are children welcome?
Please check with the Life Group leader. Some life groups will be able to accommodate children; others will not be able to do so.

Do Life Groups have a variety of studies?
Grandview Nazarene has several different tracks for adult learning. We have a variety of specific studies that happen and will continue to foster these. Marriage, parenting, financial management, estate planning, addictions recovery and more will continue to be made available through our Strong Group system that is mostly hosted at the church. Life Groups (at least for now) will be focused on building strong friendships, serving the community and developing a foundation of prayer.

What happens in a Life Group?
The 1 1/2 to 2 hour period will have time for talking about life, the challenges, the wins, praying together, discussing the content of last Sunday’s message and how it impacted our lives, and eating together. All of these gatherings are informal and designed to foster healthy connections with our church family.

How do I get connected to a Life Group?
We are going to be signing up for Life Groups starting in August 2017. You can sign up in the lobby, on-line or feel free to call the office or even the group leader of the group you would like to be a part of.

Am I stuck in a Life Group if I don’t like it?
If for some reason a Life Group that you signed up for doesn’t work for you it’s no problem to move to a different group. We ask that you coordinate that through contacting Pastor Wes. He will help to connect you with a group that will work better for you.

Will I be forced to leave my Life Group?
You will never be forced to leave the Life Group you love.
