Doing Life Together

Our culture in Calgary holds up the “rugged individualist” or the successful solo entrepreneur as the model for living life. But real life for many in Calgary can be profoundly challenging when walking it alone. We live in the midst of the crowds, but we’re flying solo and hurting, or lonely, or don’t know what it means to be loved. Further, the scriptures also do not hold up the superstar individual moral person as God’s model. The early believers walked together, ate together, had leisure times together, and learned to follow Jesus together. Out of that life lived in community, they went out together and changed the world by the power of the Spirit.

We’re not meant to follow Jesus solo – and that’s why NCC initiated the Life Groups. They’re not perfect, but most of us aren’t. But in them, we can live together, laugh together, eat together, do leisure together, and become followers of Jesus together. And surprise, we’re discovering that it’s slowly changing our individual lives, our church family, and our local communities.

What are Life Groups?

These are groups of people (usually 6-14 people) who are exploring together what it means to follow Jesus. They typically meet once a week (although there is often lots of informal interaction between gatherings) to grow together in relationships, in the teachings and practices of Jesus, and to live these out together in the midst of our local communities in Calgary.

Each group may have a slightly different format, but typically each will have elements of food, friendship-building times, Bible study, prayer, and care ministry to one another and to those in need in our city.

Life Groups, put simply, are where you will be cared for, and where you can care for others. It’s where you will be known and loved, and know and love others. It’s where you’ll feel part of the NCC family, and God’s family.

To join a Life Group or if you have more questions about them, please email Pastor Mike or  Tyler Grant and we can provide you info on the specific groups happening or new groups getting underway.  and we can provide you info on the specific groups happening or new groups getting underway.

As of the Fall of 2019, we have groups meeting across Calgary and hope to add some outside the city soon! We have groups meeting nearly everyday of the week, so email us if you want to get connected to a group that works for you!
