What is a Life group?

New Season Life group is a a group of 3-20 people who gather, either in a hosts home, at church, or a designated location off campus.

Purpose of Life Groups?

New Season connect groups exist to evangelize, disciple, and build community within our growing congregation. Each Connect Group is driven by either location, Generation (Age), or interests The goal is to offer another time to meet outside of regular services who can connect in a more intimate gathering and dive in to get to know Jesus better collectively. As a result, develop believers to maturity to lead others.

When/Where do Life Groups meet?

Each group meets different times, days, and locations throughout Sacramento and at church. We encourage groups to meet at their homes, coffee shops, outing events, and New Season Church. We have rooms available at New Season that can be reserved. Location is dependent upon each host/facilitator.

How often do life groups meet?

Groups meet weekly and bi-weekly throughout the week. The only time restrictions are during actual New Season Services, as Life groups are in addition to, not in place of Bible Study and Worship Services.

How long does each group last?

Each group meets for a minimum of 1 hour. However, it is up to the host and the flow of the group if they would like to extend. We encourage as much fellowship as possible. Connection is key.

What to expect in a Life Group?

When you attend a life group you can expect fellowship, snacks, Bible study, and prayer. Life groups are available to both believers and those seeking truth about who Jesus is. We believe in a smaller, non-intimidating environment that friendships and prayer partners can be formed. Though Godly connections, support and disciples of Christ are developed.

What actually happens in the Life Group?

Most groups will start out in fellowship for the first part of the hour. At this time they might enjoy some food and catch up from the previous week. Shortly after that then they will have an inclusive conversation from Pastor Sam’s sermon the previous Sunday and then end in prayer.

Is childcare available?

Each host and participant is responsible for their childcare. Life groups are ages 18+. Each group is empowered to address the differing childcare needs of their group, that is best for both both the children and adults.
