We believe life shouldn't be lived alone but in community. LifeGroups are a great way to make friends and grow spiritually. We have groups on marriage, finance, and spiritual freedom, and community groups that discuss the weekend message & do life together.
The Fall 2019 LifeGroup directory is now open! View descriptions and sign-up for your group below! LifeGroups start the week of September 8th, 2019.

GROW Believer and GROW Influence LifeGroups run every 8 weeks. GROW Believer helps you take your next steps in following Jesus, whether you are a new believer or want to establish a foundation of faith. GROW Influence is about maximizing your influence to lead people to God's purpose for their lives. Both meet Sundays at the GraceLife Building at 6pm.
LifeGroup Registration for Fall 2019 LifeGroups leaders is now open! Register your community group and come to LifeGroup Leader Training on August 18th or 25th. (Lunch and childcare are provided.)
At GraceLife, we believe that serving is one of the ways to live out to our vision of loving people and reaching our world. Serving not only gives us an opportunity to use our gifts, it also connects us to our community. From creating a welcoming environment for guests during weekend services, to investing in kids, to worship and media, our SERVE TEAM is all about one thing: serving God by serving His people.
Want to know more about becoming part of the Serve Team? Attend FIRST STEP Part 2, where you'll discover your unique gifts with a personal assessment and meet ministry leaders.
If you’ve joined the Serve Team in the past year, you’re invited to our annual SERVE TEAM PARTY. Mark your calendar for August 24th and RSVP!
WHAT TO EXPECT
We are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a safe and fun environment! Every Sunday at GraceLife, our goal is that all kids (Infants through 5th grade) learn in a creative and relevant way. A gKids worship experience includes music, Bible teaching, and small groups that are age appropriate and engaging, where your child will learn about who God is and His love for them. We’d love to see you and your kids at our next service!
YOUR FIRST VISIT
Upon arrival, you will be directed to gKids Check-In. We will meet your family, check your kids into our database system, and one of our Serve Team members will lead you and your kids to the room for their age group. Children can be checked into their rooms 30 minutes prior to the service.
SAFETY + PICK-UP
The safety of your child is our top priority! Each Serve Team member serving in gKids has been through a security screening, including a background check.
You and your kids will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your kids will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a text to the phone number you provided at check-in.
After the service, you will return to the room where you dropped off your child and show your tag for your child to be released back to you.
MiDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL / Wednesdays, 6:30PM-8:30PM
Our hope and vision for GraceLife Youth is that they would encounter God, be in community, and align their lives with His mission.
WHAT TO EXPECT
GraceLife Youth is for Grades 6-12 and meets every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 pm at the GraceLife building. We create an engaging environment with relevant teaching and age appropriate small groups where youth can belong, develop friendships, and discover all that God has for them.
We believe our city should be better because God’s people are in it. We want to make Jesus famous in Columbia and throughout the world. We hope to make a difference that others notice and that draws them to know and worship Jesus.
