A Life Group is a group of people striving to live out the Gospel together. These are the people who care about you, your family, your dreams, life’s disappointments, and all of the big and little things that happen in your life. Life Groups come together to live in a growing relationship with the Lord and one another, and to reach and serve people in a variety of places. Life Groups have different passions and people, but the heartbeat remains the same, to love and help people where they are by connecting them to the extraordinary life found in Jesus.

Life Groups mobilized to bring Good News can look very different, from helping a non-profit, supporting children in another country, or adopting a neighborhood. The passion and people vary, but the heartbeat remains—to love and help people where they are so the hope of Christ is center. There are a variety of Life Groups with different Gospel causes to join. Faith is also always looking for enthusiastic members who have completed The Rooted Experience and want to start a new Life Groups for men, women, or families.
We ask our Life Groups to step up and be the church where they live, work, and play.

The Columbia Men’s Thursday Golf Life Group kicked off their season with a gift to Acorns Golf Links in Waterloo, Illinois, of $1000! They applied for the $500 grant from NEXT funds and contributed $500 of their own to bless this golf course because they go there every Thursday and have developed a relationship with the staff. What a great opportunity to support them during this difficult time!
The Serving Our Community Life Group felt God leading them to use their Life Group on Mission Grant to buy $500 worth of groceries for the food bank at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Columbia.

The Empty Nester Life Group has a heart for people in the Monroe County area that are dealing with difficult situations or having financial difficulties.
