LIFE Groups are the main opportunity Stonebridge Church uses to disciple Christians. We believe a place where authentic and vulnerable relationships allow people to speak the truth in love so each person can change and grow is crucial for accomplishing our mission: “to glorify God by walking alonside each person we meet as they take their next step with Jesus.”
Types of LIFE Groups
There are mixed LIFE Groups that include men, women, marrieds and singles across all generations. Each week they follow along with the biblical text from the weekend’s sermon.
There are LIFE Groups specifically for men, called Band of Brothers; and LIFE Groups for women – called Steel Magnolias. These groups meet bi-weekly or monthly to go through biblically-based material focused on biblical manhood and womanhood and how to pass these truths on to the next spiritual generation in the spirit of 2 Tim. 2:2 and Titus 2:3-5.
LIFE Group Leaders
Leaders are key to making these LIFE Groups into successful discipleship environments. We need godly men and women who know how to exegete and understand both souls and Scripture.
My main goal is to equip LIFE Group leaders in two key areas: Soul Care and Scripture. Through the various resources on this site and at Stonebridge Church – such as LIFE University classes, Biblical Counseling support and training, and Outreach opportunities – I hope to help each LIFE Group leader become the best discipling shepherd God intends them to be.
