Life Groups

"Fellowshipping and growing together!"

What are Life Groups?

What is a Life Group?

Life Groups are River of Life’s groups that consists of 5 to 12 people that meet in convenient locations all across Alex City to learn more about the Bible, grow in their faith and meet some great new friends.

What Happens When I Sign Up For A Life Group?

​When you sign up, the leader of your new Group will contact you with the address of the Group’s meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.

When Will My Group Meet?

Life Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just sixty to ninety minutes long. Groups meet ten to twelve times over the semester. It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term.

What Will The People In My Group Be Like?

Look around at a Sunday service. A Life Group is basically about ten or so people who attend River of Life on a Sunday.

Is There A Group That’s

Right For Me?

​Since there are a variety of groups, you’ll have the chance to share your life experiences with others who have similar ones.

Can I Invite Others To

Join The Group?

Absolutely! Invite as many friends, co-workers, neighbors, family, etc. that aren’t connected to another church as you like. Our Life Groups are designed to get people connected to our church and to one another. The more people you invite to join your group, the better your group will be.

At River of Life we have groups that are ongoing and groups that are semester based.
