Life Groups

You’re Invited

Our next semester of Life Groups begins the week of February 9th and will end no later than May 10th. Just enough time to learn something new and make new friends without feeling like you’re signing your life away. We’re sure there’s one just right for you.

There are four reasons to join a Life Group:
  • You will grow in your faith.
  • Prayer from others will help you through tough times and enjoy life.
  • You’ll meet new friends.
  • You’ll have fun with other people going through the same things you are.

Here are some frequently asked questions about Life Groups:

Why should I join a Life Group?

Everyone wants to CONNECT! Here at Coastal we believe as the church grows larger we must grow smaller and more intimate through LIFE Groups. Jump in, make some new friends, and learn more about Jesus while you’re doing it!

What happens at a Life Group?

Every group is different but there are some common threads. Most groups have a time for hanging out, talking about the week and what’s going on in life. The central component is a study of something relevant to the members of the group. It may be the study of a book of the Bible, a topical book, or Learning from Jesus which incorporates Scripture, or following the sermon from Pastor Chris. Our groups are designed to facilitate friendship, encourage discussion, help us to pray and serve in community and engage each person in the process!

How long will my Life Group last?

Our LIFE Groups will last 12 weeks. They begin the week of February 9th and will end no later than May 10th.

What if I want to attend more than one group?

You can join as many groups as you want. What’s most important is that you commit to attend that group for the semester.

See a list of our groups below.

All those modern-day assumptions are, in one word, wrong. Using the Bible as his guide, and coupled with insightful commentary from Kathy, his wife of thirty-six years, Timothy Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to Him and to bring more joy into our lives.
