2018 Life Groups

Life Groups January-April 2018

At VCD we believe that participating in a Small Group is a key part of becoming a strong, healthy Christian and of building a strong, healthy church. We were never meant to do life disconnected from others! Small Groups provide a place where we can deepen our relationship with God, connect with others, and grow together into the people God has created us to be. Scroll to bottom to sign up!

What dates do Life Groups meet?

The Life Groups Fall/Winter session begins Sunday, September 17th, and runs through December 10th.


Several of the groups look interesting. Can I join more than one Life Group?

Life Groups are a way to “do life” with others. They provide a context to form real relationships, to allow yourself to be known, and to care for other people practically, emotionally, and spiritually. They are a place where we develop and experience community. Life Groups are different than a class, which is primarily a consumer experience.  Because of this, we discourage people from joining more than one Life Group. However, if you feel you have the emotional and relational space in your life to commit to more than one group, you may.


What if I need childcare?

Each session we have some Life Groups that provide a limited number of childcare spots on-site. The church covers half the cost and the Life group will collectively cover the remainder. To reserve your child’s space, simply register for one of the groups that indicate “Childcare available on-site” and list the age of each child who will need care. Please only register your child if you intend to bring him regularly.


None of these Life Group times work for me. How can I get connected?

Serving Teams – Another great way to get connected at VCD is by serving on a ministry team. Whatever your skills or interests, there is a serving opportunity for you! Click here to Get Connected!
