Sharing Life Together


Did you know you’re designed to live in community?

You can face life with the kind of love and support God has in mind for you. Now is the perfect time to find a Life Group that fits your schedule and season of life.

"My Life Group is a place where I can love & grow with my family. It's shown me that many other people go through the same struggles as I do, and I don't have to go through trials alone. I can be real with them and share all the struggles I'm going through while being there for other people." - Sharon

Life Group FAQ's


The name of such groups varies from church to church. We call them 'Life Groups' because we want those who participate to learn the joy of sharing life together with other believers.

The primary purpose is to foster growth in spiritual maturity as the group grows in relationship with one another.

The groups have six primary elements which are: fellowship, prayer, topical studies, evangelistic efforts, serving one another, and growing in life surrender as worshippers.

That will vary depending on the group but most meet weekly or monthly.

You can express your interest by emailing our church at sapekin@usc.salvationarmy.org or emailing the leader listed with the group directly. You can also call our office to reach the pastors, Capt. Megan & Lt. Brandon Lewis, at (309) 346-3010 and be connected to your chosen Life Group leader.
