Who are LIFE Groups for?
LIFE Groups are for everyone. We believe that everyone needs significant relationships to be healthy. That's why we want to be a church OF small groups, not just a church with small groups.
Why do I need to be a part of a LIFE Group?
We believe that it is not good for us to walk alone. We need each other. LIFE Groups exist to provide safe environments which foster meaningful relationships and spiritual formation. (Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:24-25, Romans 8:29).
We believe that sustained life change takes place best in the context of intentional relationships.
We agree with John Ortberg when he writes:
"I have never known anyone . . . who was isolated, lonely, unconnected, had no deep relationships - yet had a meaningful and joy-filled life."
What are LIFE Groups like at Station Hill?
Our Small Group Ministry is intentionally called LIFE Groups. This name literally communicates that we journey through life with one another where we live, work, and play. But the name also has a much deeper meaning it symbolizes our desire to foster true, biblical community:
Loving One Another
Having a community of fellow travelers on the journey to pray and care for us makes it easier to deal with the twists, turns, and bumpy parts along the way.
Involving Ourselves in Community
We play an important part in each other's lives as we find the joy and comfort from doing life together.
Focusing on God's Word
When we learn with others on the journey, we start to find the real life answers and real hope that the promises of God hold for us.
Engaging the World
We desire to be a missional community that goes in service on behalf of the kingdom of God.
