God created us to be in relationship. We are to be in relationship with Him and with each other. Life Groups are a great way to connect with people of faith.

Life Groups are small groups of people who gather around an activity, interest, hobby, or as people in the same place on life’s journey.

Prairie Lutheran Church is starting new Life Groups this year and you are invited to be part of one.

Because the groups gather around interests, hobbies, activities or life milestones, we want these to be what you want. Life Groups start and exist because someone felt called to lead a specific group. So, when there’s a leader, there’s a new group.

We’d love to add more groups! “Nothing happens without a leader.” Maybe you’ve heard that. It’s true with Life Groups, as well.  Start one! Here are some general ideas:

Read or study the Bible together

Gather around an interest (muscle cars, pets, crafts, sports, books social action, etc.)

Do an activity (serve, run, go to a play or movie, play basketball, go hiking, drink coffee, play cribbage, etc.)

Support each other (living through pain, parenting a certain age, support in grief, parenting parents, empty nesters, single parents, etc.)
