We believe that life cannot be done alone.

We we need community, we need family. That's what LifeGroups are all about.

What Are LifeGroups?

As God has called us out of darkness into light, he has welcomed us into a community that he calls the church. And the church is God’s answer for our “aloneness.” God's design for the church is that it would be a community in which we receive, and give, genuine care and biblical encouragement to walk in a manner worthy of God.

At Spanish River Church, we see LifeGroups as a “microcosm” of the church community. In other words, they are “little churches” inside the larger community that strengthen us to practice gospel living so that we can help the casually connected deeply engage with Jesus. 

Types of Groups

LifeGroups

Smaller groups offer the opportunity to share life with others from the SRC family, help foster the development of Christian community and provide a place to get into God's Word with other believers. Couples and singles are welcome!

Current Study

A Beautiful Design by Matt Chandler

God created us to function according to His perfect design, and for all of human history, our world has been male and female. But our ever-changing culture faces challenges due to sin. More than ever the church needs to be a safe refuge for the gender confused, the sexually broken, the single, the married, and the divorced. In this study, Matt Chandler gives evidence that God’s plan for man and woman is the ultimate design. And life lived within this beautiful and unchanging design is part of His greater purpose for humanity.

Current Study

Goliath Must Fall by Louie Giglio

It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life…an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, we lose sight of the promise God has for our lives. Demoralized and defeated, we settle for far less than his best. God has a better plan for you, a plan for you to live in victory. That’s why he has silenced your giant once and for all. In Goliath Must Fall, pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. The key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer—Jesus. Put your hope in him and watch Goliath fall.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Childcare Available?

Every group is different. We want to help you get connected to the right group, so make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare. Some of our groups split the costs for a baby sitter, some of our groups don’t offer any type of childcare, and some make other arrangements.

When and Where Do Groups Meet?

Every group is different. We understand that people are busy and not everyone is available at the same time. Your LifeGroup will decide what works best for the group as whole.
