The church is not a place, name, building, or program. It is people. God has called us to be connected to one another in community. At RHO, we don’t want anyone to be just another face in the crowd. We want this to become like family where we meet people and grow in our relationship with God. In many ways, Life Groups help get us there.
WHAT IS A LIFE GROUP?
Life Groups at RHO are another expression of the Church. It’s where people gather in neighborhoods across Orange, Tustin, and Santa Ana to study God’s Word, to worship, and to eat and pray together. We believe being the Church means belonging and participating in the life of the community. This can be difficult to achieve on a Sunday morning and Life Groups are an important way people get invested in church family.
Life Groups are the most committed form of involvement that we offer at RHO. Life groups are aimed to be places where we share life together as the body of Christ. If you have been involved with RHO and are looking for a deeper level of commitment then life groups might be good for you. Our groups are intentionally created to be diverse, consisting of members from all age groups and walks of life.
In addition to caring for one another, Life Groups also embrace the Biblical call to be Christ’s ambassadors by serving together within our own communities. It is in these smaller communities where significant growth and discipleship happen.
GETTING INTO A LIFE GROUP
If you want to join a RHO Life Group, please come to our next life group social. It will be on Sunday, August 13th, after service. Pastor Nick Kinnier will be talking about life groups at RHO, and some of the life group leaders will be there to answer any questions you may have. We will also have the form available that beings the life group pairing process. Our goal is that in meeting with you we can get the process started to get you into a group as soon as possible.
Next Life Group Social
