Who counts as a “Young Adult”?  We are pretty forgiving here: anyone 18 – 40ish, single or married, with or without kids.  After all, the intent of Christ Memorial’s “Young Adult” groups is not age-segregation but rather a purposeful invitation for engagement.

Life Groups

Life Groups are groups of people that you “do life with.”  The time, place, and topic of the group may change, but the members of the group stay approximately the same (hopefully with a few new faces every once in a while).  These groups exist because the best things in life are meant to be shared.  Generally speaking, Life Groups do at least seven things together: they eat, play, share, grow, pray, serve, and invite. They may not do all of these things on one specific night, but all could and should be done over a semester’s worth of time together.

At Christ Memorial, Life Groups take a host of different forms. Connection Groups, Growth Communities, and Young Adult gatherings are all various types of Life Groups.

Growth Communities

Growth Communities are groups of 15-50 people who meet weekly for Bible study, discussion, fellowship, prayer and community building.  Each one is a recurring adventure into community, faith, and life. Most groups meet regularly through the school year and less regularly (and more informally) through the summer.
