Belongings are not our possessions, they are our relationships. Who belongs to us and who do we belong to? – Joseph Myers, “The Search to Belong”
Small Groups are the best environment for personal transformation. Some groups are short term groups that allow us to connect to both Jesus and others. Some groups last longer and go more in depth. Regardless of the small group, spending time with others discussing the Bible or related themes is the most powerful format for your growth. We encourage everyone to take part in at least one short term group per year while planning on joining an ongoing group at some point.
Current Groups Are Listed Below
1. Love Does Small Group – Sundays 8:45-9:45am (July 23-August 13)
Find an upbeat, encouraging picture of love by going through Bob Goff’s “Love Does” DVD and study.

This group mixes women with young children and retirement age women to create great conversations. Join us any in the Country Club Café Basement
RSVP by texting your name to 913-278-1114.
3- Life Groups – Life Groups are an ongoing small group that will stretch from September through April. The group meets at a host’s home and stays together even when the topic changes. Childcare is provided by the group collectively paying for a babysitter. RSVP by texting your name to 913-278-1114.
Doing life together helps a person connect to Jesus in deeper ways and enriches a person’s life. While LifeBridge still offers short terms small groups, we believe Life Groups are the key for people to connect to Jesus’ Love, Path, and Mission.
Topics – Topics will change during the Life Group but will often utilize video content without any pre-required reading. Each group will be led by two co-leaders who facilitate conversation and a host.
Length – Life Groups meet together weekly from September through April. The added time together allows for community to form within the group. Each Life Group meets for 90 minutes. This includes time for snacks, watching the video, discussion, and praying for one another.
Childcare – Groups will determine how to handle the childcare needs of the group. This can look like all households with kids creating a schedule for paying for a baby sitter to watch the kids in the host’s basement.
Groups Begin – Groups will begin in September, January, and other times when we have enough interest to start a new group.
Bonus Events – Groups will also take part in two fun events and one service event per year that they plan.
