LIFE Groups

We believe intentional relationships are the key to sustained spiritual growth. That's why LIFE groups are such an important part of our discipleship strategy. In a LIFE group, people study God's word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another and are missed if they don't show up. Practically speaking, there will never be a way for the staff or shepherds to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That's why we place such a high premium on group life. It's how we minister effectively at Sycamore View.
