Why Lifegroups?

LifeGroups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why LifeGroups exist – to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. They help a big church in a big city feel like home. So no matter where you’re at in your relationship with God or your stage of life, there is a LifeGroup for you!

Everyday Life

At The Bridge Church Columbus, we know that life is people living together everyday—not alone. Beyond a service or weekend experience, we know it’s vital to connect with others so you don’t feel lost in the crowd.

People Matter

How do we continue to be effective at connecting our people as we grow bigger? The answer is that we have to get smaller with LifeGroups. LifeGroups become the heart of the church. And, they are key to developing connections with those who share your interests.

Healthy Relationships

In times of need and fun, LifeGroups will provide you with a sense of friendship and support. While it can be scary meeting new people, in LifeGroups you will you will feel right at home!

And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.

Acts 5.42

In our LifeGroups, people gather regularly to break bread, study Scripture, fellowship, and pray as a means of pursuing spiritual growth and healthy relationships together. Not only will you be encouraged to live out the truths of Scripture and grow in what God has for you, you’ll encourage others to do the same.

Types of Lifegroups

Men’s Lifegroups

True Manhood is synonymous with Christlikenes. With the pressures of life weighing on the shoulders, the reality of this statement can be difficult to apply. Our Men’s LifeGroups exist to provide men of all ages and backgrounds a safe place to build relationships, be encouraged, and challenged as they grow into the image of Christ.

Women’s Lifegroups

We often overlook the fact that much of Jesus’ ministry was spent with the people that He loved. He ate meals with them, prayed with them, discussed the truth with them, and cared for their physical and spiritual needs. Jesus calls His followers to do the same. The Women’s LifeGroups of The Bridge Church Columbus provide this same format to connect women together with each other and with God.

Married Couples

With all the joys and happiness of a married life, it’s also a lot of work! But the truth is, no marriage reaches God’s highest design in isolation. Married couples need to be connected with other married couples who have been through the same things, or at the very least, are going through the same life-lessons. Our Married LifeGroups allow couples to experience these on-going, vital connections! You’ll learn about God and His heart for husbands and wives in the company of others who are growing in their marriages, too.

Community Lifegroups

Small groups are gatherings of people that meet in homes and throughout the week. These groups meet to explore God’s Word and connect with each other in genuine relationships. Small groups are an excellent way to grow spiritually as you pray together, ask questions, join in discussions, and hear others share insights and experiences.
