What are Life Groups?

Life Groups are an extension of the story that God is writing at Pasadena Covenant Church.  They are based on the simple truth that Jesus beckons people to follow him on a journey.  At Pasadena Covenant, Life Groups are one way that we follow Christ and partner with the work that he is doing in our church and in our neighborhoods.   Life Groups are an avenue for Pasadena Covenant to learn and experience the process of spiritual development through sermon based Bible studies, prayer, worship, and community involvement.  The hope is to create a body of believers who are:

  • relationally - connected to each other and God through friendship;
  • biblically - connected Scripture through reading and dialogue;
  • devotionally - connected to God through prayer and contemplative practices;
  • missionally - connected to their neighborhood through service and action.
There are many different ways to get involved with Life Groups at Pasadena Covenant Church.  We offer diverse oppertunities to deepen your walk with Christ depending on your: age, schedule, and place in life.  Please look below and find the group that fits you best.
