LIFE GROUPS

 

 

PURPOSE: To provide a small group context where believers can grow toward full devotion to Christ through connection, community and spiritual formation.



How Do Life Groups Help?

Life Groups are designed to bring people together in a smaller, safe atmosphere of warmth to grow in their walk with Jesus Christ and deepen their fellowship with other believers. Your fellow Life Group members can become a real support as you walk through the usual struggles of life and faith and in particular times of crisis. Life Groups complement the gathering together of believers on Sundays, providing an exciting catalyst for Christian growth.


What Can You Expect at a Life Group?

A Life Group is a gathering of up to 15 people who usually meet in a family home weekly or bi-weekly on an established day of the week.  Time together will be spent focused on connection, community and spiritual formation.

  • Connection: belonging, friendships
    A small group is where we can feel connected, known and begin to form deeper relationships.
  • Community: acceptance, sharing life, care
    The fellowship of the group focuses on ‘doing life together’ - showing an interest in the concerns of group members while at the same time allowing others share in your concerns.  
  • Spiritual Formation: growing deeper in faith and knowledge, nurturing Spiritual gifts/service, witness
    Each Life Group will study God’s Word together, whether through a video series, a book study or further discussion of the content from West Highland’s pastoral teaching.  Members are also committed to carrying each other’s burdens as well as the needs of the church family and community through times of prayer.

How Do I Find a Life Group?

We are making every effort to accommodate any adults who are looking for a Life Group.  We currently have groups meeting across Hamilton Mountain, in Ancaster, Binbrook, Brantford, Dundas and Stoney Creek and our goal is to have a Group meeting in every community as we continue to grow.

To meet that end, we regularly train potential leaders in our Leadership Life Groups.  These are 4-5 month training groups where future leaders learn by experiencing a healthy Life Group themselves, while being trained for leadership in a small group environment.


You will not feel alone at West Highland if you are part of a Life Group.
