Launching Your Lifegroup

A 5 step guide to launching your Lifegroup

 
 

1

GET APPROVED

CHOOSE YOUR CONTENT

 

Here are some of our top recommendations for Lifegroup content.

 

SOAP is our daily Bible reading plan at River Valley Church. You can access the daily readings on our app.

 

We create a one-page discussion guide for each sermon. New guides are available on Monday afternoons.

 

Check out our top picks for group studies available on Right Now Media and our Lifegroups library.

SCHEDULE A SERVICE PROJECT

We encourage every Lifegroup to serve in the community at least once a season. This can be in place of one of your scheduled sessions or as an additional group outing. To help you find the perfect opportunity, we've put together a list of partner organizations below.

CREATE YOUR LIFEGROUP PROFILE

Once you've determined your Lifegroup content and service project, you can add your group to our online Lifegroups Locator. For Winter 2018 groups, choose a start date either the week of January 14 or January 21 and plan on your group running for up to 12 weeks.

INVITE YOUR FRIENDS

Your Lifegroup will grow as much as you invite others. Set a goal to personally invite 5 to 10 friends to your group and cast a wide net on your personal social media platforms as well. Here's a sample post:

Hey everyone! I'm starting a new Lifegroup. We'll meet every Tuesday morning at a local coffee shop to talk about faith and life. I wanted to invite you to join the group and would love to see you there! Message me if you're interested, and I'll send you all the details.
