Groups of 8-12 people who meet on a consistent basis to share life together and learn more about their faith. Groups are formed based on location and meeting times.

NEPC Life-Groups Exist to ‘Connect’ people to God and each other through Christ by:

  • Celebrating God in Worship
  • Sharing Life Together
  • Learning and Living God’s Word
  • Reflecting Christ’s Love to our Neighbors and Community
  • Multiplying Mature Disciples

Life Groups are a primary means of discipleship at NEPC, and serve to connect people to God and each other through celebrating God in worship, sharing life together, learning and living out God’s word, multiplying mature disciples and reflecting God’s love to our neighbors and community. These are all components of our NEPC Vision and Values.

Life Groups meet in homes of NEPC members throughout the week. Additionally, groups can meet at NEPC if necessary. For a map of NEPC Life Group locations click here!

Life Groups are comprised of both members and non-members of NEPC. They are intergenerational and have both singles and couples. Life Groups are led by members of NEPC who have a desire to encourage others and walk alongside people as they learn more about God. They are prayerfully chosen and trained to lead their groups.

Life Groups meet a minimum of twice a month- depending on group needs and desires. Most groups meet in the evenings and some groups share a dinner meal.
