Life Groups

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’ ~C.S. Lewis

Let’s ‘do life’ together.

In times of need and times of fun, RLC life groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues. Life groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, etc. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Real Life Church has to offer until you connect in a Life Group!

“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.”- Acts 5:42

Life Groups were vital to the church’s growth then, and they are just as vital now.

The Fall Semester: September 9 – December 1
