"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit." Ephesians 2:19-22
The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. While Sunday mornings can be a great way to learn about the Lord in a group setting and meet new people, we believe that small and intentional groups offer the space to experience deep growth as we sharpen, support and encourage each other towards Christ-centered living. If you are new to Eastridge, or have been coming here for a while, I would encourage you to explore joining a Life Group.
Groups typically meet in homes, weekly or bi-weekly on different days of the week. It is a safe, positive environment where the group chooses a study topic, video or book series to dive into, and then discusses what they've learned through the material or in their own experience. Everyone has the opportunity to share and learn from others, creating a wonderful environment to learn and build meaningful relationships.
Groups offer you an opportunity to:
- Learn more about Christ and grow deeper in relationship with Him
- Connect with other believers
- Be accountable to others in your walk with God
- Have a stronger sense of purpose within the church
