Dear Friends,

Did you know that at any given moment we have between 30 and 40 LifeGroups meeting here at Rock Church? Many of those meet in one of our buildings, but we also have quite a number that gather in people's homes. At last count over half of our active adults were engaged in a life group. That’s awesome!

Let me tell you why I'm so excited about that. LifeGroups are at the very heart of our mission. At Rock Church, the mission is to reach and disciple people for Christ. The "reach" is all about connecting people to Jesus who do not yet know him. Or perhaps reconnecting those who have wandered away from an active relationship with him. The "disciple" part of our mission is all about helping people who have come to know Jesus to grow deeper in their faith. This is where life groups become so important. Life groups at Rock Church are a place where believers, and even seekers, can develop relationships with other Christ followers. They are a place where we can love and care for one another by doing life together. They are also a place where we can dig into the word of God and grow deeper in our understanding of the Christian faith. Ultimately, life groups are your best opportunity to grow and mature in Christ.

So I'm very excited about how many of you have already found your way into a LifeGroup (some of you two or three groups!)  And I am grateful for all of you who lead groups, and those of you who open your homes to host groups. I am also so appreciative of the leadership that Ed and Sherry Lucia give to our LifeGroup ministry. LifeGroups are such a wonderful place of community and growth that I often hear people say that it is the highlight of their week.  Honestly, I would love for every person in our congregation to have that same experience. If you are not yet in a LifeGroup, I hope you will check out the opportunities at There are so many groups gathering at different times, and on different days, that there is bound to be something that fits your schedule. From time to time we also offer short-term groups. These short term opportunities are a great way to sample LifeGroups and discover what they are all about.

We have a saying here at Rock Church.  "Everyone is meant to grow."  I believe it is God's desires that every one of us would grow deeper in relationship with him and in our love for one another.  LifeGroups are one of the best opportunities we have to do just that.

Have a great week. Don’t forget that we are at day 30 of our prayer challenge.  Please consider making LifeGroups a special focus of your intentional prayer time today.

God bless,

Pastor Steve
