Life Groups

“Life Together”

Life groups are the very fabric of Catalyst life. We encourage everyone to commit to a life group based on the conviction that God calls each believer not just to “believe” but also to “belong” to a spiritual family, being honest and open about life’s peaks and valleys.

Each life group consists of five to fifteen people who meet weekly for the purpose of authentic community, life transformation, evangelism, and discipleship (maturity), with the goal of multiplication.

Thursday Women’s Group – Jane Shin
We aim to be a welcoming and nurturing space for women to come together with the purpose of sharing each other’s lives, being encouraged, and lifted up in prayer. It’s a time where we can be first affirmed as daughters in Christ, and grow in accountability with and for each other.

Thursday Women’s Group – Sol Shim
Our group is a Women’s only group married or single. Our group focuses on sharing our lives from the weakest point to the strongest so we are there for each other and can lift each other up. We love to pray for one another as well as celebrate our birthdays by going out to eat.
