English Fellowships
       
  We would like to emphasize that we are a church of life groups as opposed to being a church with a life groups program. Belonging to a Life Group is something that brings fullness to being part of our church. Meaningful relationships do not develop by simply attending Sunday service only. We recognize that being a commuter church the role of Life Groups is even more vital to building relationships. Thus, we highly encourage every person to make an effort to find and join a life group.

As usual, when joining a life group choose what fits best for you depending on your spiritual situation, location, and schedule. Everyone is free to join ANY Life Group. Current Life Group members can change to another Life Group since it's a new season. Generally, people will gravitate towards groups of their own age or stage of life or choose a group on the basis of a leader. However, this is not necessarily all positive as there are benefits of diversity and learning from different kinds of people. Understanding this and making a decision which group to join may not be obvious, so talking to the pastor or elders is a resource open to you. Four characteristics of Life Groups:

 
             Lively
           Invigorating
           Fun
           Encouraging
   
     
  Our Life Groups run from September till May and we take a break for the summer. This season all Life Groups will choose their own Bible study curriculum. Consult with Life Group leaders about specific materials that will be used.

When: We meet once a month on Saturdays during the life group season (Sept to May).

  Who we are: We are just ordinary people from working families to retired people. 

What we are learning about God's Word: We are going through excerpts from the Book of Psalms seeking the Lord to reveal His truth to us.  We are psalmists not to be confused with palmists!
