Small Groups at Existence Church are called Life Groups. Life Groups are where people are able to grow in their faith in a small group setting. It is a place where people can know others and be known by others, where they can pray and be prayed for, encourage and be encouraged.

WHY JOIN A GROUP?
Life is extremely difficult and draining. We were never meant to “do life” alone. We were designed to walk with each other, to grow with one another and to glorify God together. We are convinced at Existence that everyone needs the support and encouragement of other people. Everyone needs community.
While it can be easy to get lost or hide in a Sunday morning service, Life Groups facilitate an environment to actually be known with 8-12 people just like you. Through these relationships, we mutually challenge and encourage one another in our faith. That’s what Existence Church Life Groups are all about. Consider joining one today.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ Should I bring my Bible?
Yes. We always like to spend time together reading scripture. Not every group will spend a large amount of time in the in the Bible, but come expecting to learn and expecting to grow.
+ What should I wear?
Dress casual. You can leave the slacks at home, wear something comfortable. Remember it is about doing life together, not impressing one another.
+ How long will it last?
Hours and hours, just kidding. Every group is different, but most groups meet for about an hour and half each week.
+ If I go to a group and don’t enjoy it, do I have to stay in that group?
No. We will find the best place for you. Don’t worry about it, let us help you get in the right group that fits your personality and needs.
+ Do I have to be a Bible whiz to be in a group?
Absolutely not. We are growing together. It is not about how much you know, but rather about how God is working in your life. Remember, we are all works in progress. The aim is not information, but transformation.
+ Does it cost money to be in a group?
It only costs money if you are a part of a sports ministry group that is playing in a league or tournaments. Outside of those specific groups, it’s free.
