Life Groups

Jul 27, 2014

Get ready for 2016/2017 Life Groups!

Change often happens within community. That’s why we’re so excited about Sharing Life Together in our Life Group ministry!


What is a Life Group? Life Groups are home-based, regular gatherings of six or more adults who are led by qualified leaders and overseen by elders in order to build caring, faith-sustaining, lasting relationships that are marked by transparency in relation to life’s challenges and struggles. Thus, Life Groups are not primarily intended for teaching; rather Life Groups are designed for application. They create a context where Christians can apply God’s truth in a personal, practical way.

Growing Deeper. New Castle Bible Church offers a unique solution to spiritual growth and adult discipleship with its two-pronged approach of Adult Bible Fellowships (ABF’s) and Life Groups. While many larger churches only offer adult Sunday school or Life Groups as their primary adult discipleship solution, we believe that strengthening our Life Group ministry alongside our ABF ministry is a strategic way for New Castle to position our church family for future numerical growth while at the same time strengthening our shepherding of individual souls.

Get Ready. Our next Life Group term starts in September 2016 and runs through April 2017 (with December off). Life Group Sign-ups will start this August. Start praying now for God’s leading in this.
