2018 Summer Semester LifeGroup Opportunities
 
It has been said that “one is the loneliest number.”  Life was never intended to be lived alone.  From the beginning of man’s time, God said, “It is not good that man should be alone.” (Genesis 2:18)  Paul said, “Since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other and each of us needs all the others.” (Romans 12:5)
 
Faith Assembly believes that life is a team sport – best done together!  Acts 2:44, 46 says “All the believers were together … every day they continued to meet together … they broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.”
 
Rick Warren says, “Christians, like snowflakes, are frail, but when they stick together they can stop traffic.
 
We encourage you to check out our 2018 Summer Semester LifeGroup Brochure and register for a LifeGroup or two or three … TODAY.  You will be contacted by your LifeGroup Leader.
 
LifeGroups are intended to be groups of 10 to 18 people, meeting together weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly throughout the Valley.  LifeGroups are designed to minister to the people of our church and to provide an opportunities by which you can introduce your friends and family to other Christians.  You are always welcome to invite guests to any group at any time.
 
We offer three types of LifeGroups:  1) Connection Groups – The primary purpose is to use common interests to build relationship with each other.  2) Growth Groups – The primary purpose is to study the principles and teachings of the Christian faith.  3) Service Groups – The primary purpose is to use our resources to serve each other and our community.
 
If you join a LifeGroup, our promise is that you will meet new people, learn about the Bible, grow spiritually, have a lot of fun, and if you invite family and friends, they might come to know Jesus as you do!
