Convergence Life Groups

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:24-25

Life groups at Convergence are small mid-week gatherings in members’ homes.

Vision: Holiness. While many interpret it purely from a moral perspective, holiness also encompasses a life that is growing closer to God.  We make holiness the overarching vision for life groups because it is the greatest commandment (love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength).

Purpose: Our groups gather with a shared mission to pursue God, to love one another, and to serve others in our surrounding community, city, region, and world.

Why Life Groups: As individuals, left in an individual context, we have a tendency to think much about ourselves.  Community forces us to consider others and gives us a greater picture of God; as C.S. Lewis notes, “By myself, I am not large enough to call the whole man into activity. I want other lights than my own to show all his facets.”  In essence, we need one another to have a more whole view of God.
