Life Groups

At Watkinsville we value the bible, authentic relationships, all generations, and living on mission.  Life Groups exist with these values in mind. Life groups are smaller groups that provide an environment for you to "BE KNOWN" by other believers, to "KNOW JESUS" through the word, and to make "JESUS KNOWN" to the community and the world around you. 

 

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I join a Life Group?

The best time to join a Life Group is in January and August. During these months there will be multiple Life Group options.  Life Groups start meeting in September and January.  Click on the button at the top of this page to register for a group.

Interested in leading a Life Group?  

We are always looking for people to lead a Life Group.   If you are interested in leading a Life Group, fill out a leadership application form by clicking here.  As a leader our promise to you is to not leave you out on an island, but to coach and support you along the way.  

Who should join a Life Group?

Life Groups are designed for adult couples and for adult singles.  If you are married and looking for a same gender group (men's or women's group) please visit our men's and women's ministry web page for information about these gender specific groups and studies.  College students click here for college Life Groups or D-teams.

What is the best time to get plugged into a Life Group? 

Life Groups kick off at the start of each semester so January and August are the best times to join but you can fill out a form to join a group anytime and we will start trying to plug you in immediately!

Are Life Groups opened or closed groups?

We have open and closed Life Groups but most typically get full after reaching about 12-16 people.  Life Groups kick off each semester in January and August. Click on the link above to register to join a group.

When do Life Groups meet?

New Life Groups typically start meeting in September and February.  Our Life Groups meet at times other than Sunday morning.  Life Groups are typically smaller closed groups that meet off campus and meet on nights that best fit the group.  

Is childcare offered for Life Groups and what is the schedule?

We offer free childcare for Life Groups on various Sunday nights at the church from 5:30-7:30pm on our scheduled group nights through registration only. If you want to take advantage of the childcare at the church, please register with Gayle Vice at gayle@watkinsville.org.

What if I do not get connected to a Life Group?

Not everyone finds the right group on the first or even second try.  Do not give up, we believe finding community is that important.  We also are looking for good leaders because of the demand for people wanting to find a group.  Consider leading a group (see below) or try one of our Sunday morning Classes or studies during the week.  The last two options provide an opportunity to get to know people in the church and possibly start a new Life Group.
