Life Groups ImageMinistry Belief:  Life change happens better together.

Focus Areas:

  • Up – Connection with God via Bible reading/studying, worship and prayer.
  • In – Fellowshipping to widen, deepen and strengthen relationships with one another both inside and outside the four walls of Providence UMC.
  • Out – Going out into our communities and surroundings and giving ourselves away for the ministry and furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Focus Area Priorities:

  • Up – 50%
  • In – 30%
  • Out – 20%

Objective:
Provide the attendees of Providence UMC and other interested individuals with as many possible in-roads toward relationships as well as arenas for spiritual growth. An ideal Life Group will provide both a welcoming environment for newcomers as well as create an atmosphere for transparency and authenticity.

Size of groups:
All groups must remain “open” at all times to newcomers. In order to maintain environments that are conducive to incoming members, there will be a maximum individual group size of 14 attendees on a regular basis.
