At Sioux Falls First, we believe that we were all created to be in RELATIONSHIP with people who genuinely care about you. LifeChange groups are a place where you can CONNECT relationally, GROW spiritually, and SERVE together passionately. Jesus modeled this in his life with the 12 men who followed him, called his disciples.
LifeChange Groups are the primary vehicle for leading life change at Sioux Falls First. We believe that as we grow larger, we have to grow smaller. We gather together in life groups with our friends and neighbors in our homes where we do life together and experience the gospel in ways we can't on our own. LifeChange Groups are a place where we can talk through application of Sunday messages, study the Bible, love one another, serve our community and participate in the mission of Sioux Falls First. We are a people doing life together.
We want to see 80% or more of our church attendees plugged into LifeChangeGroups. LC group gatherings meet regularly outside of the church. We want to position ourselves to reach people in our neighborhoods who may not attend church but are open to come to your LifeChange Group. It is our prayer at Sioux Falls First that people will experience life change, accountability and family in your LC group.
A LifeChange group, or LC Group, is a group of 8-12 people who do life together around Jesus. In a LC Group, expect to hear truth, feel love and support without judgement and be challenged to take the next step in your walk with the Lord.
So, we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel but our lives as well.
1 Thessalonians 2:8
The DNA of Sioux Falls First is seen in our LifeChange Groups. You can expect to CONNECT, GROW and SERVE with people you are doing life with in your LC Group.
CONNECT relationally - Relationships are the transportation system of the gospel. We were not made to do life alone. God created us for community. In a LC Group you will have the opportunity to build trust and open up with a group of people who care about you.
GROW spiritually - We understand that being a Christian is not a sprint but a marathon. God doesn't want us to finish where we started. In a LC Group, you can expect to be held accountable and challenged to apply the truths from God's Word to your every day walk.
SERVE passionately - Serving other and one another is the heart of our Father. We want to model the heart of God in our groups by serving others. Whether it's serving together on our Dream Team or serving alongside one another in the community, we know that the character of God is seen and felt through our hands and feet.
One of the core values of Sioux Falls First is equipping and empowering leaders. LC Group leaders come from all different backgrounds, walks of life and experiences. We empower and equip leaders by providing leadership training, resources to help lead a LC group as well as LC coaches who will help mentor and guide LC group leaders.
