life groups

Life Groups are the heart of New Life Church and are a great way for you to become part of our family. These small groups meet weekly for about 90 minutes including a time for worship, application of the sermon, prayer, and social time. Our Life Groups exist to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus.

In our Life Groups, we desire to see everyone involved in helping each other grow in three areas:

     1. Upward: Deeper intimacy with God.

     2. Inward: Closer community with believers. 

     3. Outward: Expanded influence with others.

To find out more about our Life Groups please contact Kevin Woo.
