Gathering on the Same Page
We believe that it's important for us to be diving into Scripture and allowing God to speak to us through His Word each day. Together, we are reading through the New Testament in 2021, and we would encourage you and your family to join us!
Making Christlike Disciples in the Nations
At Real Life Community, one of our core mission areas of focus is GROWING in Christlikeness. Historically, this is known within the church as “discipleship.” We don’t just want people coming to Sunday services and making decisions to believe in Jesus. We want each person to press into the transforming work of God in their lives so that they can reflect the image of their Savior in the world.
We have chosen to work toward this goal of GROWING in Christlikeness through Group Life. We believe that sharing life together in studies and/or ministry activity with others is one of the primary avenues God uses to shape our lives into the likeness of Jesus.
We believe this will create regular opportunities for renewal, on-ramps for people who are interested in engaging in the GROWING aspect of our mission statement and build in a rhythm to keep us all moving forward together.
We hope you find one or four that you’d like to join below!
Want to Connect with a Group?
We believe that God has called us to live in relationship with one another – carrying another’s burdens, showing kindness and love, and developing relationships in truth. Life groups give us the incredible opportunity to create atmospheres for support, trust, and authenticity while also living through celebrations and challenges together. These relationships allow us to have a foundation rooted in abundant love and grace so that we may engage deeper in our walks with Christ.
