Some churches call their group ministries "Sunday School" or "Bible Fellowships." While the names, purposes, and functions of the groups vary, Heritage Hills chooses the name Life Groups to emphasize its ministry purpose of people doing life together. Life Groups exists to connect people with God, friends, and community members through small groups. At Heritage Hills, we offer both Life Groups and Sunday school.
Like a tripod or a three-legged stool, a Life Group engages in three equally-crucial functions:
1. Connecting with God through Bible study and personal application
2. Connecting with friends through caring for each other
3. Connecting with others through reaching people not yet in a group
Doing life together is being like family. While each Life Group is as unique as the individual group members, all Life Groups share Heritage Hills's core values and culture.
Definitely! In fact, Life Groups provide a casual and unintimidating atmosphere for exploring and learning the Bible and biblical truths at an easy-to-understand level. A great benefit of Life Groups is learning through asking questions and group discussions.
Absolutely not! You will not be called upon to read, pray, or answer a question publicly without your prior consent. While we encourage open discussion and intreaction in Life Groups, your participation is voluntary.
No worries, the important thing is that you find a group that is a good fit. We encourage people to "test drive" different groups. The Connection Center is a great place for you to get help in making a decision.
Heritage Hills has excellent preschool and children's ministries. Hosts in our Welcome Centers are able to assist you in getting your child to the appropriate class for Bible teaching in a safe, secure environment. We have classes specifically designed for all age groups, including preschoolers and teenagers.
