LifeGroup Leaders

Life Is Better In A Group

At its core, a LifeGroup is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. We all need each other and that's why we have LifeGroups. Whether you're new to groups and leading for the first time, or a seasoned leader, there's a place for you!

Here is how you become a LifeGroup Leader at CLA:

STEP ONE
STEP ONE

DECIDE

LifeGroups are interest-based, which simply means that you take whatever you enjoy doing and make it a group!

You could start:

  • A “Mommy and Me” group
  • Running group
  • Sports group (basketball, flag football, etc)
  • Coffee group
  • An online gaming group
  • Or lead new friends through a Bible Study

Whatever INTERESTS you, make it a group!

STEP TWO

REGISTER

Leading a LifeGroup isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Once you decide on your group topic, your meeting details (place, time, day of the week, etc.), register your group.

Leader Registration for the Spring 2024 Semester is now open.

ATTEND

Once you have submitted your group, one of our team members will reach out to you via email. Our team will give you further instructions on how to attend Leader Training. Below are the dates for the this Semester:

  • Wednesday, January 31, 2024 at 7:30pm
  • Sunday, February 4, 2024 at 8:30am
  • Wednesday, February 7, 2024 at 7:30pm
  • Sunday, February 11, 2024 at 8:30am (final)

You only need to attend Leader Training once. Simply pick the date and time that works best for you and show up! Leader Training takes place in the Next Steps room (across from the Chapel).

If you have attended Leader Training during a previous semester, you do not have to attend again. However, if it has been 3 or more semesters since you last attended, we encourage you to go through training again.

During LifeGroup Leader Training, you will get more instructions, how to host your group and a whole lot more resources on how to be the best leader you can be!

PRAY

The success of LifeGroups depends on prayer. Prayer is foundational to our church. As you prepare for this semester begin to pray for God to work through your group. Pray that God will send the right members to your group. Pray that God will be in your group. Make prayer a part of your group this semester.
