WHAT IS A LIFEGROUP?
LifeGroups are made up of 8 to 15 people who are committed to meeting every week. At those meetings, they pray together, study God's Word together, and share their lives with each other.
WHY BE PART OF ONE?
Life Groups are an essential part of the spiritual life at Foundry Church. They are where our Christianity really comes into play as our belief in Jesus intersects our daily lives.
Ephesians 4:15 tells us that in speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ.
Truth and Love are the two pillars of our Life Groups. We base our meeting times on the Word of God. We give each other permission to help us grow; and at times, this may be hard. This includes challenge, accountability, confession and confrontation. We express love in genuine community, marked by acceptance, trust, intimacy, openness, support and safety.
YOUR LIFEGROUP WILL COMMIT TO:
Purpose: Together you will foster growth in Christ-likeness
in the context of genuine community.
Being a Safe Place: In a context of grace you will feel safe,
accepted, and free to be open and heard.
Accountability to One Another: You will give permission
to each other to help you grow through accountability,
confession and even confrontation.
Be Open & Welcoming: Together you will pray for and
invite others to join your Life Group.
Deepen Relationships: You will commit yourself to get to
know others in the group and care for one another.
