Life Together Groups
What are Life Together Groups?
Life Together Groups are small groups where people can experience authentic, biblical community. People share their lives together as friends, gather around God’s Word, pray for one another, and serve together in ministry. Having said that, there is a lot of variety among the Life Together Groups.
The three purposes of Life Together Groups
To Grow, Care and GO. LTG’s are the primary disciple-making tool at QLBC. It’s through LTG’s that we grow in loving God and trusting Him in our everyday lives. It’s through our LTG’s that we receive and give the care and nurture that we need in our community of faith. It’s through our LTG’s that we go with God into our community and world to share the message and the love of Jesus Christ.

What are the benefits of being in a Life Together Group?
We do not feel alone in our journey of faith because we walk with others. We are accepted for who we are — a work in progress. We experience the one another's of Scripture (love one another, encourage one another, serve one another, etc.).
We enjoy grace filled accountability in the group.
We experience intentional modeling and mentoring.
We are able to interact with Scripture together and openly share our reflections.
We are prayed for and supported through the difficulties of life.
We grow in faith as we follow God’s lead, step out in faith to minister, and see God move to bring Christ’s salvation into people’s lives.
We experience what it means to truly be the body of Christ.
How do I join a Life Together Group?
The best time to join a LTG is during one of our three promotion months each year (mid-August through mid-September, mid-December through mid-January, and mid-April through mid-May). During the promotion months, new 10-12 week groups are forming. You will be able to sign up for a group on the Life Together Group webpage at the church website (www.qlbc.org) or at a booth in the foyer. You may also check out more LTG information and current events anytime at our webpage.
