Life Groups


Living In Fellowship Everyday (L.I.F.E): 

Our LIFE Groups are the backbone of our church.  In these groups we have 2 purposes:  Study and Live-out God’s Word.  We believe that our LIFE Groups are a source of growth, encouragement, and Christian connection, which makes it a vital part to who we are at First Southern.

How to get Connected to a LIFE Group: 

We have over 18 different LIFE Groups for all ages.  If you are interested in any of these groups, please feel free to contact any one of our ministry point people.  They would be more than happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.  Many of our Groups are using “D6” Curriculum to help supplement their studies to the Bible.  This material encouraging parents to be highly involved in the spiritual development of their children.  You can see more here.
