Community Groups

At NewLife, we recognize the importance of community in our walk with Jesus. Community Groups are gospel-centered environments where people can connect, serve, grow, and be transformed by the Gospel of Christ. Below is a list of groups that are currently running at NewLife. New short-term groups will start up in the fall. If you are interested in any of the following Community Groups, please sign up by visiting our online signup page, or contact the group leader. If you would like more information about any of the following Community Groups, or future Community Groups, please speak to one of the elders or contact us.


Short-term Groups

"Fervent" Book Discussion

Who is Jesus?

This 5 session DVD-based course taught by Dr. Del Tackett is on the person and mission of Jesus. In today's world many have constructed their own personal view of Jesus. But what is the reality? What does the evidence show?
