so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

Each group aims to teach us how to become better disciples of Christ in all aspects of life.

Part of the DNA of Maywood is life groups; people long to connect to life-changing communities where they can be transformed and empowered to serve Christ and His kingdom. The purpose of our Life Groups Ministry is to develop deeper Christian relationships through prayer, accountability, encouragement and fellowship.

Our church has two primary types of life groups:

1) Community - centered around Christian relationships

2) Ministry - centered around a certain affinity
