life groups

We love life groups!

At 828 Church we believe in connecting people to God, people to people, and people to purpose - and Life Group is a fantastic way to do just that!

Connect with God through His Word, connect with people through conversation and discussion topics, and connect with purpose as we walk out the call we have on our lives in community!

We are so excited about what God is doing at 828 Church, and what He will do in our Life Groups this year! The groups will begin mid-January and run through mid-May.  In addition to our Sermon-based discussion groups have several Learning to Live content-based group options!

828 Sermon-Based Group

828 Sermon-based groups are where we will highlight portions of each Sunday morning message, and take the time to dive deeper as we discuss them together during the week, which will really help bring some of those "take-home truths" home!

XA Groups

XA (Chi Alpha) is an amazing on campus ministry partner at 828 Church. For 18-23 year olds, we would love to connect you with peers on campus to be part of weekly groups that meet together to create community, study the Bible, and grow deeper in your faith.  

Body in Balance Wellness

Body In Balance Wellness is a Functional Wellness Practice rooted in Christ defining health as the state of body and soul, together.  True Christ-Centered Wellness includes our physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual health. In this class you will dive deeper than thinking in terms of worldly ideas of what health means. We will not only focus on food intake, and calories burned,  we will apply biblical principles with a practical approach to all the true aspects of your wellness.

Women's Study

Our Ladies' Daytime groups will be going through the study Don't Look Back by Christine Caine. With a rallying cry to "Remember Lot's wife," Bible teacher, international speaker, activist, and bestselling author Christine Caine will motivate you to stop looking back, get unstuck, and keep moving forward into God's promises and purpose for your life!

Thank you for being bold and taking the next step into the 828 family. You won’t regret it!
