Sharing Life Together

To see every believer at New Castle maturing in Christ through active participation in a small group of the church called Life Groups.

We believe that growth in spiritual maturity effectively takes place in community with a smaller group of believers Sharing Life Together. Life Groups are intended to flow out of a person's commitment to the Sunday morning experience (Worship Service and a Bible Fellowship Class). These groups (6-16 adults with some including children) put the Christian faith into practice together.

As people grow in community they begin to discern things like passion for ministry, spiritual giftendess, and affirmation from other believers. In the context of these smaller groups, people are encouraged to consider Serving Others Together by finding a place to serve in the church family.
