It’s summer time. Hopefully, this is the season that you get to relax a little—sit on the porch and sip some lemonade, and spend time with the people you care about. Right. We know what you’re thinking. We hear you laughing. We can picture you shaking your head. Because, for most of us, declaring that it’s the “lazy days of summer” doesn’t mean that anything slows down, it just means that it’s warmer outside. No matter how busy you might expect this summer to be, it’s important that you get and stay connected. Because there are going to be times that you’ll need a laugh, a friend, some encouragement, or some godly wisdom, and that’s where LifeGroups come in. At Faith Life Church, LifeGroups are an extension of who we are. Like FLC itself, our LifeGroups are designed to help people like you and me have more—more impact, more purpose, more of God, and more of the good life God planned for us. So this is your chance not to miss out on having more. This is also your chance to invite anyone and everyone you know to have more right along with you. If they try to tell you how busy they are, invite them anyway. In fact, tell them that attending a LifeGroup might just be their only chance to relax. In love,

“No matter how busy you might expect this summer to be, it’s important that you get and stay connected.”
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 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 FLC, 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? Well, you don’t have to choose just one! Feel free to get involved in as many as you’d like. That said, 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.
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. Some childcare can be planned with donations from the group. Ask your LifeGroup leader for the specifics for your particular group.
HOW DO I BECOME A LIFEGROUP LEADER? To become a LifeGroup leader, you need to fill out an application, provide personal references, and complete 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.
STUDENT MINISTRIES THE MIX The Mix is exactly what its name suggests a mix of relevant discussions, food, games, and worship. Each Mix brings a fresh flavor and style as we uncover the secrets to upholding a Godly standard and impacting our generation. Bring your friends!

If you are a person of integrity and feel led to step into one of our usher positions, we encourage you to get involved.
