From Your Pastors…

LifeGroups at Faith Life Church aren’t about filling empty chairs. And, we don’t want you to join a LifeGroup because you feel like you’re supposed to. We know you don’t need to add just anything to your already overloaded plate. It needs to be worth it. We believe LifeGroups are. The world is a scary place right now. Every day, you face news and reports that could drain the life right out of you, if you’ll let it. That’s why you need to be a part of a LifeGroup—you need a good laugh, some encouragement, and friendships that go deeper than what you can get through social networking. You need to take the time to enjoy life, to get more of God, to make an impact, and to have more of the good life God planned for you. You need to get involved in a LifeGroup. While you’re at it, take the opportunity to help someone else that might be feeling drained, or close to it. Invite them to come to a LifeGroup with you. Start with your family, neighbors, and coworkers. We know it’ll be worth it. In love,

Pastors Gary and Drenda P.S. Our Impact Teams section has grown! Be sure to check out all of the opportunities for you to make an impact!

“You need a good laugh, some encouragement, and friendships that go deeper than what you can get through social networking.”



WHAT IS A LIFEGROUP? A LifeGroup is a group of people that meet to connect, share an interest, study biblical teachings, support one another, and have fun! At FLC, we put our LifeGroups into specific categories—Interest Groups (interests & hobbies), Life Enrichment Groups (teaching and Bible study), Support & Recovery Groups, and Impact Teams (service teams that keep everything going). WHERE AND WHEN DO LIFEGROUPS MEET? LifeGroups meet at different places on various days or nights during the week and on the weekends. Several LifeGroups meet at The Now Center, while others meet in homes, or in other locations throughout Central Ohio. WHY ARE LIFEGROUPS IMPORTANT? We believe that connecting with one another is vital for our spiritual lives, and LifeGroups are a great way to do that. Our desire is that everyone would be involved in a LifeGroup. HOW DO I CHOOSE A LIFEGROUP? Some people choose a LifeGroup based on hobbies, or a desire to be with people in their same life situation, or because they want to learn or try something new. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the church office and we will gladly assist you. And, remember, you don’t have to choose just one! Feel free to get involved in as many LifeGroups as you’d like. HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR A LIFEGROUP? Once you find a group (or a few groups) that you’re interested in, feel free to contact the leader directly using the information listed with the group.  WHAT IF I WANT TO JOIN A CLASS THAT HAS ALREADY STARTED? It’s never too late to join most LifeGroups. Check with the leader of that group to see about jumping in. WHAT ABOUT CHILDCARE? Childcare is provided on a case-by-case basis. Ask your LifeGroup leader for the specifics for your particular group. HOW DO I BECOME A LIFEGROUP LEADER? You can become a LifeGroup leader by completing an application, providing personal references, and completing a background check. All Life Enrichment Groups must also submit outlines and materials for approval. Following approval, all leaders are required to attend a training session to get equipped for the upcoming session.

Join our team! DAY/TIME: Once or twice a month during service times as well as special events or services CONTACT: Sarah Traylor at USHER TEAM Do you think being an usher is just a matter of meet/greet/seat? Well, think again! Before, during, and after service, the Spirit of God moves on the congregation, and our position is to be there to ensure the Spirit moves freely. We do this by protecting the anointing around Pastor, addressing distractions, assisting members, maintaining security and serving leadership. If you are a person of integrity and feel led to step into one of our usher positions, we encourage you to get involved.


DAY/TIME: Varies CONTACT: Heather Jenkins at

SOUND TEAM Help set the tone for our Praise & Worship team to minister, help protect the anointing on Pastor as he delivers God’s Word clearly, and ensure that the message can go forth uninhibited. If you have a love of music and a gifted ear for mixing, then this is the place for you. Experience is welcomed but not required.
