LIFE GROUPS

Life Groups are meeting weekly ONLINE during this time.


OUR MISSION

Bemidji First Assembly is a church of Life Groups, not a church with Life Groups!  Life Groups exist to help individuals find community and grow in faith.  Lead a group or find a group that is based around something that you like to do or a passion that you have.

GET CONNECTED

WE BELIEVE CIRCLES ARE BETTER THAN ROWS.

WHY WE LOVE LIFE GROUPS!

Life Groups have one simple purpose:  to bring people together.  While we gather in rows to learn, it is within the circles of a Life Group that we grow in our relationships.  We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us.  Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren't always easy to find.  That's why Life Groups exist--to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.


FIND A GROUP

We have Life Groups for every age and stage of life that meet throughout the week.  There are activity groups, book studies, Bible studies, groups that meet together to play games, and more!


HOW DO I JOIN A LIFE GROUP?

Simply browse though our various groups until you find one that fits you.  Contact the Leader(s) through our website and try out the Life Group.  Feel free to try out different Life Groups until you find one that is a great fit for you or email lifegroups@bemidjiag.org with your name and Life Group preferences and someone from our Life Groups Team will connect you with a Life Group leader.


HOST A LIFE GROUP

Leading a Life Group isn't about being perfect; it's about serving others by giving them a place to connect.  Hosting a group is simple--choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it.  We give you essential tools to make your Life Group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily.  We believe people's lives are changed one semester at a time through developing authentic relationships where discipleship takes place in very natural settings.  As a Life Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
