Spiritual growth happens best in the company of friends. “Small Groups” are small gatherings of people who come together regularly to worship, care for one another, and help each other grow toward a thriving relationship with Jesus.

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:46-27


Sugar Land Life Group 1

Sharing life together and with God. Learning to love Jesus more through community. Really learning to share all of life together and with God, Life Groups live out four main purposes: to connect more deeply with Jesus; to build genuine and trusting friendships with each other; to grow in all that God has deposited in us, and to learn to love others outside of our groups by regularly serving people together. Life Groups are places of real community, where we ask questions and navigate the ups and downs of life together, as we learn to love Jesus more and more in the process. These groups are open for visitors and for joined at any time.

Community allows us to feel the effects of our humanity: the nobility of being made in God’s image, and the pain of being fallen and broken. It spurs us to see the hurt of our sin and to begin to turn away from it. It gives us a language and a grid through which we make sense of our experiences with God. The Gospel sets us free for this, to be slaves to one another, this time in love. We are to make our way in this fallen world together, bearing with one another, pushing toward restoration.

Will Walker, The Kingdom of Couches
