COMMON QUESTIONS

WHO CAN JOIN A LIFE GROUP?

Anyone in our church can join a Life Group. Just visit the Life Groups page on our website, search for a group of your liking, then click the  contact button to inform the LG leader that you re interested. 

WHAT HAPPENS AT A SMALL GROUP MEETING?

You’ve probably seen Life Group meeting and not even realized it. A CWC Life Group is a small group of people who gather in Jesus’ name for community and growth. It can be Bible study groups, a Support group, a Service group, or even certain Activity groups which looks like friends at lunch, or teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Life Group is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in our Life Groups, you can expect to connect with others and engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.

HOW OFTEN DOES A SMALL GROUP MEET?

With our new plan, our Life Groups are quite flexible and can realistically meet Monday through Sunday.  We will now meet for four semesters a year—Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. During the semester, most groups meet once a week, but can vary depending on the Life Group.  Small groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

WHERE DO SMALL GROUPS MEET?

Our Life Groups meet both On-site  (at the CWC Campus), and Off-site (at various locations). See the group finder page for details on each group.

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL SMALL GROUP STAY TOGETHER?

Most Life Groups meet for a semester, but some are on-going year round.  Our quarterly semesters are flexible, but typically meet for eight weeks, then break for four weeks. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.

IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?

Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in our Life Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!

WHO CAN LEAD A LIFE GROUP?

Anybody! However, certain requirements must be met first in order to lead a Life Group. All the requirements are listed on the main Life Groups webpage. Also, each Life Group Leader is accountable to a CWC Staff Leader for discipleship, who will encourage you through your leadership journey.
