Whether you’re brand new to First UMC Graham or you’ve been coming for years, a LIFE Group is a great next step for anyone who wants to grow in their relationship with God and others.
Each LIFE group strives to reach:
UP - through prayer, worship, and study
IN - through mutual care, support, and encouragement
OUT - in mission, service, and invitational witness
FORWARD - empowering others
- What is a typical LIFE Group session like? Each LIFE Group is unique, but generally all groups have some social time with snacks and conversation up front, followed by a time of study and prayer. The meeting will last somewhere around 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
- Who leads the group? A LIFE Group facilitator is someone who is recognized, trained, and appointed to serve the members of their group by starting, organizing, and helping to maintain the healthy functioning of that LIFE Group.
- How often will we meet? Most groups meet weekly at a time most convenient for each member in the group. If a LIFE group that you are interested in does not fit your schedule, let us know and we will look into starting a new one.
- Where will we meet? Most LIFE Groups meet in group members' homes, while others meet at the church or by Zoom. Groups may meet consistently in one home or choose to take turns meeting in different group members' homes.
