LIFE GROUP

A Life Group is the place where 8-10 people gather at a location (most likely in a home), do life together, and seek to grow as disciples. These groups can choose to eat together and will have a sermon-based discussion. We would love for you to join a group as a way to connect and grow! How to join a Life Group: Click Here

TRANSFORMATIONAL GROUP

Transformation Groups are groups of 3 or 4 same-sex Christ-followers (disciples) who meet weekly to go deeper in their walk with God and one another.  These groups pursue greater depth with Christ and others by taking what they learn and committing to live in obedience to all Christ commanded (John 14:15).

How: Each week do the readings before you meet, discuss the questions that are listed below and commit to sharing Christ’s transforming love by doing what you learn (John 14:15).

  • How have you acted on what God has been teaching you?

WATCH PARTY

A Watch Party is a group of people who meet in homes to experience an online service together with 8-10 other people. They build community and encourage each other to grow in their faith by praising and worshiping through music, listening to the message, and engaging in discussion questions following our service. This is an amazing way to be intentionally missional by inviting neighbors and friends into our Watch Parties.

WHEN TO WATCH:

Services are made available by 9am Sunday mornings.  Join us right at 9am, midday or in the evening!  The time you gather on a Sunday with your Watch Party is determined by you and your group!

HOW TO WATCH:

Follow the “Sunday Service” button on the homepage for a direct link to our YouTube or become a YouTube subscriber to:  Life Church of the Northwest Valley to view.

FOR LIFEKIDS:

We have created some fun, at-home activities that you and your families can do together while continuing to learn about Jesus!  Watch Party group leaders will be given video curriculum as well as downloads/printables and a craft. If you are not able to attend a watch party one week, we have you covered! You can find all weekly resources on our Life Kids page.
