A Note from Pastor Phil about Life Groups:
At Westview we don’t want anyone to be lost in the crowd. Regardless of whether you have been at Westview for years or are brand new to us we want you to be noticed and included. That’s why we have our “Life Group Ministry.” In Life Groups we gather in small groups, either midweek or following our Sunday worship, to deepen our faith in Christ, strengthen our fellowship with each other and equip each other to live out Christ’s mission. As we grow in faith and fellowship, Life Groups become a safe place to invite friends who are asking questions about faith in Christ.
On Sunday morning, following 10 a.m. worship we have a variety of Life Group options to attend, each has a different commitment level attached to it but each with valuable opportunities to know Christ more and to know each other more:
There’s a Life Group which is open to EVERYONE but it will be ideal for those who are just checking out Westview for the first time with no commitment to continuing, but a place to begin to belong and not get lost in the crowd;
There’s a Life Group for those who are seeking to begin a relationship with Westview or with Jesus Christ requiring a short-term commitment of two to three months and allowing for deeper relationships to form and for Biblical and spiritual themes to be explored at greater depth;
There’s an assortment of Biblically based or topically themed Life Groups which run for two to three months and which are geared more for growing an established faith in Christ, though open to others as well.
Midweek we also have a variety of Biblically and topically based groups.
Life Groups are to grow our Life in Christ and our Life with each other so that no one needs to be lost in the crowd at Westview.
