A LifeGroup is a group of people connected in meaningful relationships with each other. These groups are set up to do life together through studying God’s word, caring for each other, serving together and growing together. LifeGroups provide a more intimate setting than you can experience in a worship service.
LifeGroups meet in a variety of locations; on-campus in conjunction with our weekend worship services, in homes around town, or wherever else God leads. A group could even meet at Barnes and Noble! All that is needed is for you to contact a Group Leader and GET CONNECTED!
As good as our weekend services are, they are not enough for you to become
all that God intends for you. Here are just a few of the benefits of being in a LifeGroup
at Anastasia Baptist:
Opportunities to ask questions about the bible, leading to a greater understanding
Sense of belonging to God’s family at ABC. You will lose the feeling that you are just
a face in the crowd and you will genuinely connect with other Christians.
Support from members of your LifeGroup that will help you handle life’s stresses and
challenges better. It’s through a LifeGroup that you will receive care from “the Church.”
Opportunities to develop leadership skills. Our LifeGroups are designated with a sharedleadership approach in mind. Every believer has gifts that are to be used
to benefit the body.
In a LifeGroup, you will be challenged to discover how you are wired to serve God and
then find a place to serve, not only in the group, but also in a ministry of the church.
