Helping People get Focused, Equipped,
Connected and Involved in Flint, Michigan

Life Groups

We believe that Christ-followers cannot grow in isolation. We need others around us to stretch us, strengthen us, encourage us, pray with us and keep us accountable.  Consider the following verses:

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”   Hebrews 10:24Two ladies in their 40's laughing and drinking coffee together around the table at Life Group

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”  Proverbs 27:17

Life Groups is our strategy to help people get connected!  Groups usually being after Labor Day and run through May.  If you are currently in a group, you don’t need to do anything.  If you’d like to join a group, or if you would like more information, please send and email to Pastor Larry at   lburk@sbcflint.org   and he will contact you.

What?  Each group meets for about 90 minutes and includes a time of food/fellowship, application discussion centered on the morning worship service message, purposeful prayer and small group care.

Where?  Each group meets in the home of a church family member.  We will do our best to place you in a group that meets within a reasonable distance from your home.

When?  Life Groups season begins in September and concludes in May.  Most groups meet on Sunday afternoons or evenings at a time determined by the group.  Occasionally, groups are cancelled when there are church activities scheduled for Sunday nights at the church.

If you want a place where, in the safety of a small group, you can take off your mask and be real with others and get real help and encouragement from others, then you need to join a Life Group.  You don’t have to do life alone!
