LIFEgroups

LIFEgroups are small group gatherings of people connected with others in ways that help them grow to love God and others even more.


LIFEgroups are the right place where you can love and be loved, care and be cared for, serve and be served. Being a part of a LIFEgroup will connect you with a group of friends who care for each other, and together grow in their faith through Bible Study and fellowships in homes.

LIFEgroups for all ages meet on campus. There are also online, off campus, and hybrid in-person/online groups. Off campus and online groups meet at different days, places, times, or locations than traditional on campus Sunday groups.

If you are not currently connected to a LIFEgroup, scroll down this page for information about our LIFEgroups, or stop by Next Steps in the Lobby to find a group that is a great fit for you! You can also email us at lifegroups@firstnorfolk.org and we'll answer your questions and help you find a group that is right for you.
