Do you long for a deeper sense of community? Being made in God’s image, we were designed to be in relationship with one another. As sin entered into the world, so have broken relationships with God and others. NEWLIFE Groups are an intentional effort to reclaim the community God designed us for.
Whether you are already part of an existing group and want to come together as a refresher; are seeking to join a group; or would like to lead a group, you are invited to join us in this effort. Our NEWLIFE Group Launch will be happening in May on Wednesday nights (May 9, 16, 23, and 30). During these 4 weeks you will catch a vision for NEWLIFE Groups; explore the themes of growing, caring, and connecting; and receive practical tips for your gatherings.
Meetings will be held in the Huston Room from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Childcare and meals will be provided, but please be sure to RSVP to Jason Scott by phone at 412-364-9492 x110, or by e-mail so we can plan accordingly. Hope to see you in May!
NEWLIFE Group Opportunities
Living in community in the form of groups has been a longstanding value of Memorial Park Church. We offer two pathways to help you get connected: by starting or joining a NEWLIFE Group and by serving in a ministry at the church. Our list of active groups changes often, but if we don't already have a group that meets your interests, we can help you start one!
NEWLIFE Groups at Memorial Park are a place to connect with God and others,care for one another through joys and sorrows of life, and grow in our faith as we help one other apply God's truth and Word to our lives. They are a great place to ask questions, express opinions, and relate scripture to our lives. We desire for our groups to reach out to others in their everyday lives with loving-kindness. This simple act of intention can be life changing for a hurting person.
NEWLIFE Groups come in all shapes and sizes—with groups of married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, life stage, life interests (i.e. hobbies)—the list goes on. No two groups are alike, people gather for many reasons, and the expressions and experiences of each group will look different because of the unique gifts, personalities, and passions of the people involved.
