Groups are currently in session!
Most groups will go on hiatus over the summer and begin again mid-September.

Our small group ministry is called “Life Groups” and they meet on various nights throughout the week. We offer our Life Groups 3 times a year (Fall, Winter and Spring). Most of our Life Groups are sermon-based (meaning we use notes and questions from the weekend’s teaching as the basis for our group discussions) and some use curriculum (DVD or book based).

Why Life Groups?

We believe spiritual growth flows out of two basic commitments:
1. A commitment to God and the Bible.
2. A commitment to significant Christian relationships.
To help develop these significant relationships, we have created “Life Groups.” It is our goal to have every member of our church involved in either a Life Group or another similar small group experience. While most groups are sermon-based, some are special interest groups focusing on topics such as parenting, marriage recovery and Christian basics for new believers.

These home Bible study groups require a ten-week commitment, and are comprised of 10-16 people. They meet weekly to share, to study God’s Word and to support one another spiritually. Most of the groups study a sermon-based curriculum.

The groups meet for three 10-week sessions from late September through June, taking a break during the summer months. Throughout the 25 year history of having Life Groups here at North Coast, 80% of our weekend adult attendance have been in Life Groups.
