RealLife Groups

Our Sunday services are too big to build meaningful community

And honestly, that’s not even our Sunday goal. So how do we stay faithful to God’s call to reach out and make room for everyone, but still be able to connect in a more relational setting for community? Through RealLife Groups.


Calling all couples! Join us every other week as we connect with other couples, have fun playing games, sharing meals and doing life together. Time and Place TBD.

Do you ever feel unsure about who and what to believe? These days, we are bombarded with information. Everyone is trying to tell us what to buy, how to look, how to vote and what to believe. Who can we trust when we have questions? And does having questions make us “bad Christians”? The audience of Hebrews was not much different from us. They, too, had questions about their faith. Join Robin Isenhart at 7pm Thursday evenings at her home in Brewster to explore these questions. The first meeting will happen on September 30th as an orientation to the first 5 app, and to get ready for the group gatherings that will follow.

Lori Laughlin invites women to study, “Mindset: Learning and Living the Will of God,” together, a flexible inductive study by Pam Gillespie of Precept Ministries. We will cover questions such as: Where can I find the power to follow God? How do I know God hears my prayers? What does it mean to be called by God? This study dives deep into Romans 8 to discover truth for ourselves and wrestle with how knowing the truth and thinking biblically will change how we see the world and live in it. We can’t stop with knowing truth…we need to press on and live it!!

Group will meet Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 PM starting October 13th at Lori’s home (405 S. #3rd St., Chelan) Lori: 509-679-6901

The crazy awesome thing about being a Christian is that it is simply and magnificently complex. This is why it is so great to be able to meet with others to talk about what it means to be Christian. Shaun & Andrea Elliott will gather people in all stages of belief for great discussions and awesome company. Due to popular feedback, we will be starting with “Confronting without Offending.” Beginning October 6, our group will meet every two weeks at 7pm on Wednesdays at the Elliott Residence.

Marian Felker & Vicki Peebles invite you to join them for “Sensible Shoes” by Sharon Garlough Brown. The book takes us into a new understanding of key spiritual practices and offers support for those who want to travel deeper into life with God.

The Philosophy

We model ourselves like the first century church by having a large group celebration once a week (Sundays), and then gathering in smaller groups during the week for real growth…kinda like the way Jesus did with the people He hung out with. 

These groups are a great way to meet new friends, have a good time, make a difference in the community and grow in your relationship with God. You’ll find people who are friendly but not manic, spiritual but not obnoxious. These are folks who don’t take themselves too seriously, but want to make the most out of life.
