Fall 2018 Life Groups


Life groups are part of our vision. 5 Point was named for the 5 purposes of the church: worship, evangelism, ministry, discipleship, and fellowship. Our vision for Life Groups is to see you experience discipleship and fellowship in a great way. Through a meal and just getting to know each other, you experience fellowship. As you circle up and discuss the bible, you’re experiencing discipleship. Reach and Teach.

Life groups are Biblical. While the church was being created there weren’t fancy buildings, so they met in people’s homes. “... breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” - Acts 2:46b-47. I long to see this very thing happen in our Life Groups.

Life groups are where new friendships are formed. As our church continues to grow larger, we must grow smaller. A great way to do this is to get involved in a Life Group. Have you ever thought to yourself, “I don’t know everyone”? We were created to be with others and not alone. Life Groups are how we try and connect.

Life groups allow you to serve others. Life Groups do so much to turn our focus on others and not just ourselves. Love Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year and to see so many people serving others in our community JACKS ME UP!

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. You need to be in a Life Group! Don't hesitate! Don't put it off! Do it now! I promise you won't regret it.

-Pastor Dean Herman

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can join a Life Group?

Anyone. Different groups are a better fit for different demographics and locations. Most are family friendly, but some groups are provided for just women or men, or certain marital statuses.  

Where do Life Groups meet?

Most of Life Groups meet in a host home. 

When do Life Groups meet?

Most groups meet once a week on a set day and time for 10–12 weeks. Life groups are short term commitments with lasting impact!

Why should I join a Life Group?

You can't do life alone. We were created to be in relationships with others and with God. It is essential to surround yourself with others and to encourage and challenge each other in our different walks of life. You fully experience Church when you get out of the rows and Live in Circles.
