About Small Groups
In Genesis 2:18 we see the first real crisis in the Bible – God looks at man and says, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” It is here we see that we were actually created, hardwired for relationships – first a relationship with God, second a relationship with each other. It is because of this that we hold so tightly to discipling people in the context of meaningful relationships.
As disciples of Jesus, we guide people into spiritual relationships with other Christians where they can grow and develop in the discipleship process. Small Groups are a vehicle where authentic and transparent relationships form and discipleship happens.
“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” NLT
At Cylife Church we invite you to join us as we make and send disciples who love and live like Jesus!
Small Group F.A.Q.
Small Groups meet weekly in homes or other locations around town. Each group has intentional leaders who lead the group through a biblically based discussion. Groups vary in size, but not in purpose. They exist to disciple people to grow and mature in Christ so that they can then go and disciple others to do the same. You can expect a warm, welcoming environment, you can expect great conversation, and you can expect to be received just the way you are!
Every group is different. We want to help you get connected to the right group, so make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare. Some of our groups split the costs for a babysitter, some of our groups don’t offer any type of childcare, and some make other arrangements.
Groups primarily meet in homes. We will help you find a group convenient for you . Every group chooses a different time to meet, if a certain day of the week works better for you make sure to include that information when you sign up.
There is not a set length of days, weeks, or months in a small group. Small groups are all about maturing in Christ. As people within each group grow and mature, we believe it is our responsibility to release them, enabling them to go and be disciple makers. It is one of the most celebrated times of our Small Groups when we branch a group, sending folks out to grow and expand the kingdom of God. This is the Great Commission (Mt. 28:18-20) being carried out!
We provide all of the material for our Small Group leaders. It is intentionally written to aid in the discipleship process. We use what’s called “orality”, the art of story telling. We pair this with discussion questions, in hopes that our groups engage in honest conversation and develop a knowledge of the stories of the Bible.
We offer three types of adult groups staring at age 18.
Men, Women, and Everyone Groups. Our Everyone Groups are coed and welcome men or women, whether married or single.
