The Refinery Church

LIFEGROUPS

Refinery Lifegroups are small groups of about 10-15 people that meet regularly to do life together. Groups intentionally grow together in faith, friendship, and guide each other in living out our mission of helping people love and follow Jesus for life.
As our church grows bigger, Lifegroups are how we stay small. We pray that everyone who attends The Refinery gets connected to small group community.  Below are a few ways to connect.

We are here to come alongside you as you seek to get connected to Lifegroup community! We have different types of groups for various ages and stages of life including groups for men, women, families, and special interest groups. Email tricia@refinerychurch.cc to take the next step in finding the Lifegroup community that is the right fit for you!

One of the best ways to find a group is to host one! Hosting a group doesn’t mean that you have to know everything about the Bible or that you are able to answer everyone’s questions. What it does mean is that you are seeking to grow in your faith and in community with others and are able to open up a consistent meeting time and space (your home, coffee shop, etc.) in which to do so. We encourage you to start by praying about others in your circle who God would lead you to start your group with. We are here to support you every step of the way! Email tricia@refinerychurch.cc to take the next step in becoming a Lifegroup leader.

When can I join a Lifegroup?

You can join a Lifegroup at any time! Email tricia@refinerychurch.cc to explore existing groups. She will connect you with a few Lifegroup Leaders to learn more about their groups and see if they might be a fit.  We do pause several times a year, in the fall and spring, to provide more intentional on-ramps to Lifegroups as well.

What kind of Lifegroups are currently offered?

We have several different types of groups for different ages and stages of life. There are men’s, women’s, mixed groups and some special interest groups (JOY group, Young couples Lifegroup, Creatives Lifegroup) that meet at various times, locations, and frequencies throughout the week. Email tricia@refinerychurch.cc for help with narrowing down which kind of group might be the best fit for you.

Can I try multiple groups?

Of course! Our goal is to help you find the group that will be the best group for you. Oftentimes this may mean trying out more than one group. Tricia will work with you to connect you with a few group leaders so that you can learn more about their groups.

Is childcare provided?

While we do not provide childcare for Lifegroup meetings, we do have some family groups that involve children in their group meeting times. We encourage you to speak with the group leader about whether children are present during Lifegroup meetings or if any alternate arrangements can be made for childcare.

What if I want to host a group?

That’s great. One of the best ways to find a group that’s a good fit for you is to host a group of your own.  We would encourage you to begin by praying about who God would have you start your group with.  Once you’ve identified a few other folks to gather around you, we can help you get your group started.  We are here to support you every step of the way.
