Building Community and Pursuing God through our LIFEGROUPS is a vital part of Countryside Christian Church. We utilize these Lifegroups to support one another as we grow in our relationships with Jesus and each other (Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:24-25).

We also believe Lifegroups (small groups) were Jesus' model for discipleship to:

  • Connect with others, and develop meaningful relationships
  • Grow in our faith and understanding of God's Word
  • Shepherd those who come, and minister to their needs
  • Hold each other accountable to the work and grace of God in our lives

We believe people best come to wholeness and maturity in Christ through an atmosphere of open and honest relationship. 

Lifegroups serve an important role in our growth in Christ.
