What is a life group?

A life group is a small group of people (typically 12 people or smaller) who gather regularly to encourage, support, and help each other to make sense of and grow in their faith together… basically “doing life together.”

What happens in a Life Group? A Life Group must encompass 3 things:

  • We Care

    Support and care for one another, sharing struggles, concerns, joys, and prayer with one another.

    If you would like a prayer shawl, baby blanket, or need any assistance from the We Care / pastoral team, please email: wecare@fumc-clermont.org.


  • WE Grow

    Using the Bible as the focus of reference to apply God’s will for your life through His written word & Biblical discussion with each other.

    We have a great free resource to our church family for bible study material called Right Now Media:


    To request a password for Right Now Media, contact: Pastor Chris Tabone at c.tabone@fumc-clermont.org.  

    For more information on additional growth resources, contact: Pastor Bill Delia at biblestudies@fumc-clermont.org.

  • We Serve

    Intentionally going out as Jesus did to care for and serve those outside your Life Group.

    Check out how you can serve with your Life Group HERE.

How do I start?

  • Start connecting with people you would like to share life with and exchange contact information.
  • Existing Small Group Leaders (who want to convert to Life Groups) PLUS anyone who wants to form a Life group
