What is a LifeGroup?

A LifeGroup is a home fellowship made up of 6-16 people who meet weekly to share, study and support one another. A trained leader leads each group. An average meeting lasts for an hour and a half.

Here at Kearney eFree, LifeGroups are the hub of our ministry. They’re the place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study God’s Word, while supporting and sharing our lives with one another. We believe that meeting together on a regular basis is time well spent.

LG Questions

When and Where Do They Meet?

Nearly 80 LifeGroups meet at various times throughout the week in homes throughout the Kearney area and beyond. Some groups meet at the church, including short-term “starter groups.”

What Does It Cost?

Few things in life are free and Life Groups are no exception! The cost of Life Groups is the cost of commitment. Part of that commitment is the promise to attend each week and to complete the homework as well as do one service project together for the year. You have the first three weeks to decide if your group is a good fit for you. When you join a LifeGroup, you’re promising to attend and be prepared each week. It’s this commitment that makes Life Groups work. Still not sure if you’re ready to join a LifeGroup? On this web page, you are invited to watch and listen to stories of regular people who lives have been changed by being in a LifeGroup.
