Why Life Groups?
Life Groups exist so that we can "live together." It is the process of building a community that glorifies God in every aspect of life through making disciples who make disciples. So if you want to grow in your walk with God and better worship Him with your life, then come join one of our life groups. Our life groups take on the personalities of the people that compose them. They can look like a Bible study in someones living room with snacks and drinks or a group of grown men playing basketball and studying scripture at the end. Some people call these "traditional life groups" and "affinity groups." Whatever you call them makes no difference. They both serve the same purpose. Life together to glorify God through making disciples who make disciples.

Tilley Life Group

Description: Will be going through the book "A Praying Life" by Paul Miller.
Prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it - an illness, or saying grace at a meal - most of us simply do not pray. We prize accomplishments and productivity over time in prayer. Even Christians experience this prayerlessness - a kind of practical unbelief that leaves us marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy.
Prayer is all about relationship. Based on the popular seminar by the same name, A Praying Life has discipled thousands of Christians to a vibrant prayer life full of joy and power. When Jesus describes the intimacy He seeks with us, He talks about joining us for dinner (Revelation 3:20). A Praying Life feels like having dinner with good friends. It is the way we experience and connect to God. In A Praying Life, author Paul Miller lays out a pattern for living in relationship with God and includes helpful habits and approaches to prayer that enable us to return to a childlike faith.
If you join this group please pick up the book before we meet.
