Life Groups are a place where you can share your life with others. The bigger our church gets the smaller we want to be. This happens by getting connected in a Life Group. We have a variety of groups with different topics and interests. They consist of people just like you who open their homes or meet at church to connect with you!
Life Groups exist to help each of us grow in our relationship with God and build lasting friendships that will support, strengthen and encourage us in our daily walk with the Lord.
As you read through this brochure prayerfully consider which Life Group God has chosen just for you. Get connected in a Life Group today and see your life begin to change.

New Life Community Church, Room 6 As service members return from serving abroad, most come home without a sense of community or belonging; often segregated from the community and peers within society. New Life’s purpose is to prevent current and prior service members from being led astray, but to help them rekindle their relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The men and women who endure the challenges of battle go on with their lives; however, they must prepare themselves not just body and mind, but most importantly in spirit.
Starts July 14: Every Tuesday – 9:30 a.m.
Leader: Donna Martin
Location: New Life Community Church,
Room 6 (child care available)
The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. The author, Geri Scazzero, quit being afraid of what others would think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else’s life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life.
When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you’re on the path not only to emotional health, but also to the true purpose of your life.
In this eight-session Bible study you will learn how to get out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This study is for every woman who thinks, “I can’t keep pretending everything is fine!” Cost is $25 for book and workbook. Child care is available with a donation.
Leader: Connie Boyer – (805) 890-0604
