One of the best things about our LIFE Group is the community we have as we’ve built our friendships together, based on our common love for Christ. This basis is essential to a healthy group; we may each be at different stages of our walk with Jesus, but we can connect over God’s work in our lives and our study in Scripture.

Prayer, sharing and Scripture are the links that make up our group. All three contribute to us getting to know each other better in a safe and open place. When challenges arise, like my current health situation, we are free to go the extra mile in serving – even in something as simple as providing rides to multiple medical appointments. No matter how many guys are in the group, I’ve found that the fellowship and accountability, knowing I would see my brothers on a regular basis, has been fundamental to me for keeping on the right path in terms of self-discipline and practices.
