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.

Sunday morning adult spiritual formation elective beginning March 1, 2015: "For the life of the World: Letters to the Exiles" 

Sunday mornings, Beginning March 1st: Corner House

Have you ever wondered, “What is my Salvation actually FOR?” Is it only about personal atonement, about getting to heaven, or something that comes later? Is it just to have a “friend in Jesus?"

Randy Hill and Anita Sorenson will be co-leading our new Sunday morning adult spiritual formation elective, "For the Life of the World: Letters to the Exiles". 
 
Come and join us and explore how God’s purposes are woven into every area of our lives: family, work, art, charity, education, government, recreation and all creation! The Bible calls us strangers and pilgrims, living in “the now and not yet” of God’s Kingdom Come on earth. We are also called to be salt and light, to have a transforming presence among our neighbors. 
In seven weekly 20-minute-ish film episodes, you’ll learn how our lives lived on earth matter in God’s plan for the world. We will investigate God’s Economy of All Things – OIKONOMIA (a Greek word that has a lot to say about God’s plan for his creation, the world, and us.) We will be watching the film clips and having conversation about faith and culture, beginning March 1st, at the Corner House
