GM LifeGroups are one of the best ways to get to know people and engage in community. There are groups for all ages and demographics. Once the next season of LifeGroups kicks off, a complete list will be available for you to choose a group that is perfect for you. LifeGroups are currently on hiatus and will relaunch for the 2021 Spring semester.
The purpose of LifeGroups at GM is to engage in community that leads to life change. In order to progress in our spiritual walk, and in connection to the church, we need to surround ourselves with people who have the same goals. LifeGroups become a family, people you want to share the successes and struggles of life with. At Genesis Metro Church, we call this living life together. Lives are changed through involvement and influence, and that happens face-to-face.
LifeGroups are small groups of adults that meet regularly in someone’s home for connection, prayer, and spiritually driven discussions of depth. GM has groups of all ages and stages of life. With over 20 groups, you are sure to find the right one for you.
A LifeGroup is a small group of adults who gather together on a regular basis to encourage, challenge, discuss, and create community. Essentially it is a place for you to ‘do life together.’
Simply put, we all need community. We are designed to be God’s personal agents to encourage, challenge and care for one another. The Bible says it like this in John 13:34, 35, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
GM LifeGroups are on a semester schedule, and take place in the spring and fall of each year. LifeGroups meet for about 12 weeks each semester, once a week, nearly every night of the week. They’re located throughout the city of Frisco and the surrounding communities.
While every group is different, a typical LifeGroup gathers in homes for dinner, laughter and fun with games or icebreakers, discussions of the Pastor’s sermon, and prayer over each other.
Each LifeGroup handles their childcare needs differently. Some offer childcare in the host home, or at a nearby home in the same neighborhood. Often, trusted students provide childcare for a nominal fee shared by parents.
GM fosters an environment of servant leadership. LifeGroup leaders serve the church and have a heart to contribute. They provide their groups with vision, direction and support. They don’t need to be Bible experts or teachers in order to lead. Leaders are successful when they are active and growing in their own relationship with Christ, and are connected to the vision and values of GM. Leaders are encouraged not to lead alone. They invite co-leaders who offer support and leadership within the group. Each LifeGroup leader is supported by a LifeGroup Captain, who is supported by the LifeGroup Pastor.
