Life Groups

A discipleship ministry of LIFE Foursquare Church


At LIFE Foursquare church, we value getting together as believers to spend time in fellowship and the study of God’s Word.  This happens in many venues, and includes a variety of special interests and a variety of meeting times and locations.  We have some groups that meet weekly, and some that meet monthly.  But, most of all, you should know that we would love to have you involved in connecting with other people in informal and interpersonal gatherings as well as in the regular church services at LIFE.  Take a look at these LIFE Groups and Fellowship groups available for you!

The LIFE Group ministry of LIFE Foursquare Church has been created for the main purpose of discipleship. We believe that Ephesians 4:11-16 defines a goal of discipleship as being each person built up to the same level of faith and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

We also believe that the LIFE Group ministry is a great avenue for personal growth in those who attend LIFE Foursquare Church. We believe we should have lots of fun together as we fellowship and learn!
