Why Groups?

We believe growth happens in the context of relationships. Our small groups here at Real Life are called “Life Groups” and they have one simple purpose: to Bring people together. God created us to live in community with others, and it is only when we do that we experience the abundant life He intends for us.
Simple fact: When we do life together, our problems become smaller as God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives.
Life Groups become a place where others don’t just know your name but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.


Our groups have the following components:

Share Together – groups share as they walk through life with friends.
Study Together – discussion of God’s Word is an important part of the group life.
Pray Together – prayer for those in and others outside the group is the heartbeat of group life.
Serve Together – each of our groups is challenged to serve others as a group.
Eat & Play Together – sharing a meal or enjoying social activities add a special touch to group life.

Our groups have the following rhythm:

Gather Weekly – Fellowship, Prayer, & Bible Study
Party Monthly – Have Fun, celebrate together what God is doing in the group.
Serve Quarterly – Get out of the walls of your group and serve the Hollister/Branson community.
