What is a Life Group?
A Life Group is made up of approximately 10-12 adults (plus teens & children) who gather twice a month to discuss that Sunday’s sermon, to pray, and to build deeper relationships with one another. Each group has a trained leader, a host, and includes light refreshments. Wednesday evening Life Groups at the Odessa Ministry Center include child care through our Keystone Kids and Keystone Students Ministry programs.
Where do Life Groups meet?
Most Life Groups meet in homes throughout the region, while some will meet at the Ministry Center. Life Group locations typically include Odessa, Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Oldsmar, Land O’ Lakes, New Port Richey, and Clearwater.
How important are Life Groups?
Life Groups are a high-priority at Keystone Bible Church. In Life Groups, some of the most impactful ministry takes place as group members discuss God’s Word while supporting and sharing life with one another. It is in Life Groups where we focus on praying together for the needs of the church family and for one another. We believe that meeting together in a Life Group on a regular basis is one of the best things you can do for your own spiritual health and to build a healthy church community.
The pastors of Keystone purpose to give meaningful care to our members and regular attenders by dividing up our flock into smaller, manageable groups. Each shepherding group is assigned one of the pastors and it is our hope that each person and family knows they have 24/7 direct access to one of the pastors at all times. It is also our hope that the Shepherding Groups enable each pastor to be more focused on and connected with a few individuals rather than trying to do that well with all attendees within our congregation.
Community Groups are church-wide picnics that occur throughout the year usually following our Sunday Worship service. The purpose of Community Groups is to grow our love for one another in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. These picnics typically take place at a local park, a church member’s home, or on our own campus property.
