WHAT IS A LIFE GROUP?
Life Group is also a place we come to celebrate, share joys or encourage one another in challenges and difficult times.
At NHFC we gather weekly in small groups as families ranging from 5 to 12 persons. The purpose of meeting regularly to study God’s word and fellowship.
A Life group is where nutruring, prayer buddies, deeper relationships, bonding happens.
WHAT GOES ON AT A LIFE GROUP MEETING?
Though each group differs in how they do things, many groups enjoy a time of food and fellowship, in the beginning, then they transition to a time when they share in Bible study and pray for each other. Each group decides how much time they will spend on fellowship, Bible study sharing, and prayer.
What Do I Do at Life Group?
Being in an LG will brings you closer to Jesus through regular bible study, and guides you towards spiritual maturity.
Meeting regularly in a small group setting allows us to share life’s journey and build each other in godliness.
Through prayer, we build deeper bonds with each other and develop an initimate relationship with Jesus.
IS THERE CHILDCARE?
Each group is responsible for providing their own childcare. We strongly encourage and ask each Life Group to include their children in some part of the group time and then allow for separate time specifically tailored for both the adults and children. Some practical suggestions regarding childcare can include parents chipping in together to hire a babysitter either at the place they meet or at a nearby home. Each group can decide how to handle this issue in the most appropriate way for their group.
ARE THERE GROUPS THAT HAVE MARRIED COUPLES AND SINGLES TOGETHER?
Yes! There are Life Groups that contain both singles and married couples together. We encourage this mixture so that singles can experience healthy, Christ-like examples of real married life. It is also an opportunity for married couples to support and understand the challenges and values of a single lifestyle.
WHEN AND WHERE DO LIFE GROUPS MEET?
Life Groups can meet almost any day and time of the week. Most of them meet on the evenings. While most groups meet in a consistent location (the home of a leader or group member), some groups prefer to take turns meeting in different members’ homes. There are also rooms at NHFC that can be reserved for regular Life Group meetings.
HOW OFTEN DO LIFE GROUPS MEET?
Groups can meet weekly, bi-weekly. We encourage at least a bi-weekly meeting and ask that no Life Group meet less than monthly.
HOW LONG DOES EACH LIFE GROUP MEETING LAST?
Each Life Group picks the length of time they will meet. However, most groups meet for two to three hours to accommodate a time of fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
