Life is better when you’re connected. At Metropolitan Church, we believe God designed us to connect with Him and with each other. For this reason, our Life Groups help provide opportunities to do just that.
Life Groups create atmospheres for relationship, discipleship and fellowship. We grow spiritually and relationally when we participate in Life Groups.
You weren’t designed to live life alone. God has gifted you with special abilities through which you worship him and encourage others. I want to invite you to share those abilities and grow in your relationship with Jesus in one of our Life Group settings.
In this book, you’ll find a summary of the different Life Groups and small group settings we offer at Metro. I would encourage you to read through the brief descriptions and select a group that best fits your stage of life.
Also in this book, you’ll find information about how you can contact group leaders and pastoral leaders with questions about connecting with a group. If you have questions that aren’t specifically addressed here, please feel free to contact me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s join together. Lets be the body of Christ and learn and grow with each other. I’m excited about the opportunities to grow and I look forward to your development as you participate in a Metro Life Group.
