Life Groups

One of our values here at The Word Church is to build healthy relationships and we believe it is important for everyone to discover a place where they can connect and grow. We were never created to “do life” alone and Life Groups exist for individuals to build and develop as a community, which is an important part of maintaining a healthy Christian walk.

Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

In the words of our Worship Leader, Shamira. “Harvey hit our building but it didn’t hit our church.” We are stronger than ever, however, the after effect shifted us in numerous ways. Though we gained bigger space at Dekaney High School we lost the opportunity to have our traditional mid-week service. But this is where Life Groups come in.

We believe Life Groups are one of the best places to foster significant relationships and growth with God and each other. They provide a great way to connect with a smaller group of people that are brought together by topics/interests, activities, and fellowship. Life Groups are a safe place to be known, encouraged, celebrated, and challenged. The format and atmosphere of each Life Group will be different depending on the leaders and the people in the group, but they all exist to help people connect with each other and with God.

No matter your age or interest, whether you are looking for an accountability group, Bible study, learning Christian basics, financial wisdom and more– In 2018 there will be a group that’s perfect for you!  See the exciting new Life Groups set to launch this February listed below and consider selecting the one that fits you the best!  We can’t wait to do LIFE with you!


Continued Christian Education Life Group: What's In Your Bible?

What’s In Your Bible?                               Pastor J, Life Group Leader                          Wednesdays @ 7:13 PM              (Beginning Wednesday, February 21)

The most difficult questions in life are answered in the Bible. How to have a successful marriage, how to be a great parent, how to forgive, even how to select friends are all found in the Bible. Matter of fact, the key to total life transformation is found, you guessed it, in your Bible. However, the thought of reading the Bible let alone studying the Bible can be a daunting task for new believer as well as a “seasoned” believer. In this simple, hands on 6-week Life Group, Pastor J aims to offer the attendee 6 unique yet equally effective Bible study methods to help you explore biblical truths, apply them to your life, and grow as a disciple. “What’s In Your Bible” will challenge you to develop a customized, personal approach to exploring and studying the riches of God’s Word for yourself.

  • Break life-long patterns of defeat and despair, refocused on the glorious hope promised to us in Christ
  • Remove paralyzing inner anxiousness and truly live in the peace that surpasses all understanding
  • Put an end to the self-focused distractions of striving, comparison, and performance so that your life will accomplish more for God’s glory
  • Smile at the uncertain future, not because we are stronger, but because Christ in us, is stronger than all our problems

Week 1 – God is stronger than EVERYTHING.
Week 2 – God is stronger than my struggles.
