We consider Life Groups to be essential at City Life Philly. Spiritual growth happens in the context of relationship.
The early churches, started out of the life and ministry of Jesus, followed the pattern of meeting in both large and small groups (Acts 2:46). At City Life, we meet together weekly on Sundays as a large group to encounter God through worship and teaching. In following Jesus’ example we also encourage involvement in a Life Group, to help build fellowship and accountability that happens best within the context of a small group.
So What Is A Life Group?
It’s a weekly meeting of about 8-15 people who gather to build friendships, laugh together, encourage one another, and grow in their spiritual walk and faith. It’s Our church’s dream to be a relational family. When we share our joys, they double. But when we share our burdens, they’re cut in half.
