Life Groups are small groups of people getting together to have meals, study the Bible, and pray. We form these groups because they are important to developing a strong faith and local community.

Men’s Life Group
Sundays from 7:30–8:45am
Terry’s Home – Directions

This group is working through a study called “The Gospel of Mark” by Francis Chan. The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. In this study, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

Women’s Life Group
Tuesdays from 7:30–9:00pm
Cheryl’s Home – Directions

This group is currently working through a study called “She’s Got Issues.” In this study, Author Nicole Unice talks candidly about how the everyday issues that drive you crazy affect you . . . and why you don’t have to settle for letting them win. Some days living up to the whole good-Christian image seems impossible. You do the right things (well, most of the time), but you just don’t feel changed by your faith. Deep down, you’re still dealing with the ordinary struggles—control, insecurity, comparison, fear, anger, and unforgiveness—that hold you back from living free and loving well. The good news? You don’t have to “fix” yourself. You have access to the power of Christ. His power can transform your everyday weaknesses into your greatest strengths and gifts.

Beatrice’s Home – 52 Cranfield Link SE, Unit 320 Directions

If you can’t make the evening Life Group, join our women on Wednesday mornings to study the Bible and pray. Currently, this group is doing a study called  “Embracing Your Strengths, Who Am I and What Am I Supposed to Do About It?,” a series by Women of Faith. Each week this group looks into God’s Word to learn how to use the strengths and gifts that God has given us to fulfill His purpose in our lives.  For more information and location details, email Heather (fraserhe@gmail.com) for more information.

Facebook Life Group

Do you have an irregular schedule that makes meeting on a set date and a set time difficult? This may be the group for you. This life group takes place on Facebook and is currently doing the 30 Day Challenge “Exploring Christian Disciplines.” Join the discussion, ask questions, and interact with other members whenever your schedule permits. Once a month, we have a meet up for those members who can make it. This will give us an opportunity to get to know each other on a more personal basis. For more info, check out the Southwinds Facebook Life Group or contact Deanne (deannea12@yahoo.ca).
