What are Life Groups?

Salem Bible Church is passionate about Life Groups! Life Groups provide a context for enriching community and spiritual growth. They are the local expression of Salem Bible Church through members' homes.

We take our cues from the early church in Acts 2:42 - 47 who "devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching [we study the Scripture together] and fellowship [we build real, safe, life-giving relationships by 'doing life' together] . . . and prayer [coming alongside one-another in prayer]".

Life Groups also provides the context for discipleship. Jesus ministered far and wide; however, He invested in 12 disciples who would carry on His mission after He was gone. Life Groups provide the context to invest in one another and encourage one another to be more like Christ.

Life Groups are a venue for outreach. There is always an "open seat" policy. We invite friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc., to visit and experience Christian community while hearing the good news of Jesus Christ.

A Life Group is a place to help one another fulfill Jesus' words: "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

 

WHEN DO LIFE GROUPS MEET?

Generally Life Groups meet every other week; some meet monthly depending on the members' availability.

 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Groups are generally 10 to 15 members and can be a mix of age groups or comprised of people from a similar life stage. The smaller size of Life Group gives the opportunity to build relationships which would be difficult to do during Sunday worship alone.

 

WHERE DO YOU MEET?

Groups meet in leaders' homes but are not limited to that venue. The home provides a backdrop for safe relationships and the building of community.

 

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

Contact the church office at 610-966-5822, option 1 or churchinfo@salem-bible.org. In addition to leading the Life Group ministry for Salem Bible Church, Zach and Salina lead a Life Group in their home. The relationships and community built within have encouraged members in their love for the Lord and for one another.
