Life Groups exist for the purpose of becoming more like Jesus while developing meaningful relationships. We believe that we are better together when we are loving God, loving each other, and loving our world. Community is who we are, not just what we do.

Life Groups consist of 6-12 people meeting together in homes, apartments, coffee shops, restaurants around our city, and online. These Life Groups meet weekly or biweekly to grow closer in relationship with Jesus within the context of a smaller group. We have three 8-week sessions a year for our members to engage faithfully in.  

Our 8-week sessions for 2022 are:
February 6 - April 2

April 24 - June 18

September 11 - November 19

We encourage everyone to join a Life Group that fits their schedule and season of life. Since life change happens in community, we believe that joining a Life Group is an incredibly important Next Step for you to take. We are making it easier for you to find people you can connect, grow in faith, and impact your community with and that you can call family! 

To find a Life Group we encourage you to: pray and seek the Lord. Click on the FIND A LIFE GROUP button below. Look through all the Life Groups to find the right group for you. Then, on the specific Life Group’s page you would like to join, click on Ask to Join.

It’s really that simple!


Lead A Life Group

You know as much as anybody that it's important to be connected. That's one reason you're part of Catalyst Church.

We know it's hard to connect with others and build lasting friendships. We know that even defining community is tough because being in community is more than showing up for Bible study. It's also sharing food, laughing until it hurts, and doing what you love to do with your favorite people.

What if you could help more people find and enjoy that kind of laughing, caring, and growing community?

You can. Here’s how:

How do I join a Life Group?

Use the Life Group Finder It will allow you to search by category/group type, day, time, location, and childcare availability. When you find a group you are interested in you can send the leader a message to ask questions, get additional information, and join the group. We would love to get you connected into a Life Group!


Where do Life Groups meet?

Our Life Groups meet off campus throughout our city and the surrounding areas. (Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, Richlands, Sneads Ferry) Some meet in homes, restaurants, or coffee shops. When searching for a Life Group you can either search by zip code or by category. Sometimes the best group for you may not be the closest group to you. It’s a better idea to search by category, which lists the different types of groups we have available.


What type of groups does Catalyst Church have?

We have Life Groups for men, women, singles, married, co-ed (married & singles), senior adults, and support groups. We also have Life Groups for our middle and high school students which are grade and gender specific.


What is a Life Group session?

A session is a set amount of time that our Life Groups meet. We believe that we all need a healthy Sabbath so we plan it in our Life Group system. We meet during the Fall, Winter, and Spring Session and then break for the Summer.
