Life Group

Vision: Cornerstone’s vision for life groups is that we help each other become more like Jesus Christ, loving God above all else and sacrificially loving others. We believe the path to mature discipleship is found through relationship with others. To this end we seek to gather our congregation into small groups to share life together as a spiritual family.

Purpose: Life Groups are groups of 8-25 people who meet regularly to CONNECT in caring relationships, GROW together to be more like the Master, Jesus Christ, and sacrificially SERVE others.  Life Groups are geographically based and longer-term than other small groups. Most of these groups meet formally every other week as a large group, but share life together with the goal of becoming a spiritual family under Christ. To connect with a Life Group, contact Pastor Dave.
