Human beings were created for relationships. At KC, we believe that the Biblical model of small group fellowship is where relational growth in Christ best occurs. Life Groups are small groups in which people grow closer to God, closer to one another, and discover, develop and experience the fullness of the Christian life.
“All the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common.” Acts 2:44
Groups for Your Life
Life Groups are typically made up of 8-12 people who share any number of commonalities – married couples with or without children, singles, men, women, workplace, geography, special interests … the list could go on. No matter where you are in life or what your interests are, there could be a Life Group for you!
Frequently Asked Questions
“How do I join a Life Group?”

- Fill out an Information Card indicating your interest in joining a small group. They are located at the welcome kiosk in the narthex.

“When do Life Groups meet?”
Life Groups are free to meet on a day and time that works best for the group as a whole.
Groups are asked to respect all existing ministries and consider their impact. Be sure to
check with the church office for availability of facilities and about ongoing ministries.
“Where do Life Groups meet?”
Life Groups are encouraged to meet in member homes, with hospitality being a significant emphasis on behalf of the host. Group members need a safe, friendly, welcoming atmosphere in order to get the most out of their time together. Space at the church is available, but limited.
“How frequently do Life Groups meet?”
While meeting time and location specifics are up to each group to determine, all Life Groups are encouraged to meet consistently on a weekly basis.
“Who leads Life Groups?”
Life Groups are encouraged to rotate meeting leaders on a regular basis so that no one person is overburdened with preparing each week.
Group Facilitators are responsible for all planning related to teaching and hosting responsibilities, as well as all group communication, planning, and coordination, but are not necessarily the designated leader of each individual session.
“How long do Life Groups last?”
Life Group members may join or leave their group at will, but all members are encouraged to remain in their group for a minimum of 6-8 weeks to allow time for meaningful relationships to begin to form.
“How can Life Groups get engaged in a service ministry?”
Each group should identify at least one regular ministry service it can perform as a group, either for the church or somewhere in the community.
Ministry service can be either internal (e.g., providing meals for the youth ministry, church landscaping/beautification, childcare for other small groups with childcare needs, etc.) or external (e.g., benevolence, Manna’s Market, civil service volunteering, etc.). Groups needing help identifying a particular area for service can contact the pastoral staff for assistance.
