Lifeline Small Groups

Are you dealing with problems in your relationships, finances, emotions, or marriage? You are not alone! Everyone deals with difficult interpersonal relationships, financial stresses, and wounds that life throws our way. Lifeline Small Groups are designed to give people the tools to deal with life’s everyday challenges, enabling them live lives of freedom.

Facilitators provide an opportunity to face life’s tough challenges in a confidential environment through Bible based teachings and concepts.

The courses are built as precept curriculum; where participants build understanding and gain healing, one foundation at a time. Therefore, it is crucial when considering a class, that you take into account your ability to commit to the full length of the program and to the others in the group. The majority of courses will have a minimum number of classes required for graduation.

Nearly all courses will have homework assignments that will take approximately 2 to 4 hours per week. The homework is vital preparation for the following week’s discussion. There will also be a charge to cover materials for all courses. Fees vary.

Courses will be made available on an as-needed basis. Once we have a large enough group, the course will be scheduled and announced in the Sunday bulletin and on the Web site, and potential participants will be notified via phone or email.

We hope that Lifeline Small Groups will help each and every one of you gain victory over the circumstances in your life.
