In lifeGroup, people at all different stages of their spiritual journey grow together in Christian fellowship as they worship, experience God, minister to one another, and serve together in their community.


At the Church we live life together in lifeGroup. Small groups that meet weekly in each others homes. We WELCOME our friends and neighbors, share a meal and share our lives. We WORSHIP, grow in the WORD, pray and care for each other. Together we serve our neighborhood and community as a WITNESS of Jesus' love. Authentic biblical community requires deep connections. Our connection to other people is at the heart of our Christian experience. Though we often experience worship in a large setting with many other people, authentic connections happen most effectively in smaller groups where there is opportunity for dialog and relationships.  In lifeGroup, people at all different stages of their spiritual journey grow together in Christian fellowship as they worship, experience God, minister to one another, and serve together in their community.

Below you can view all of our lifeGroups. Sort by region to find a group near you, read through their descriptions and contact the lifeGroup leader for more information about their group.

Our lifeGroup Director,  Amy Meyer would be happy to help you connect to a group. Contact her by email or call to chat at 608.271.2811 ext11.

Gumm

We're a Fitchburg group and currently meet on Monday nights, but we're flexible and will always be willing to discuss meeting on a different day of the week.  We're a group of couples who have kids ranging from 1-13 years old, and we welcome anyone, Church-goer or not, who'd like to give lifeGroup a go.  Our typical lifeGroup night includes a potluck-style  dinner and discussions about what we've experienced (life stuff) and what we've learned (e.g. reading The Story) in the week since our last meeting. We hope you'll try us out and let us share why we think lifeGroup is aweekly routine worth embracing!  Plus, if you come to the Gumms' house, Matt will let your kids play his drums!

Our lifegroup is comprised of 20-30ish year olds from every walk of life. We have singles, new families, couples, you name it. We live mostly west side and downtown and rotate house and cooking duties. We really focus on being a community and taking care of each other outside of "lifegroup time" as much as we can. We also try to be community focused and mix up meetings with fun outings and service events.

Cavonis and DeChamps

Hello!  Our group is eclectic.  We are a blend of friends in our mid-20's to early-30's at various points in life (single, married, married with children, and various stages of our walk with Jesus).  We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 p.m. usually at someone's home on the west side of Madison.  Typically we share a meal, play a game, encourage each other in the daily grind of life and spend time in God's word.  Other times you will find us serving in the community at places such as a local food pantry and harvesting vegetables at a garden to be donated to others.  We also enjoy social opportunities in the community like Trivia Nights at local restaurants.  We look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your walk with Jesus!

The Frohmader  lifeGroup loves Jesus and we are overjoyed to be able to have friends to gather with on a weekly basis. These meetings have helped us develop close relationships as we share our lives with our lifeGroup members. Our group consists of grandparent-aged adults gracefully aging together. We generally meet on Wed or Thurs evenings at 6:30 pm in the Fitchburg area. We have adopted Oakwood Village West as our service project, serving monthly in their Sunday chapel service and also leading a monthly Bible study. If you want to know more, or take us for a test-drive, send us an email.

We're an informal group, sharing snacks and drinks together. This is a group that wants to reach out to those with questions about the Christian faith or those who are new to the love of Jesus. We'll use a variety of ways to spark discussions about faith, God, and our lives. We may read some passages from the Bible, or watch a short video  together. We know people are all in different spots in their journeys, so we want this group to be a place where people can ask questions and feel comfortable exploring what they believe.
