What is a Home LIFEgroup?

A Home LIFEgroup is 6-12 adults (individuals or couples) gathering in the home of the LIFEgroup leader or a home of one of the LIFEgroup members for the purpose of building relationships, studying God’s Word together, helping one another, corporate prayer and being on mission with God as a group.

Support Groups

Life can be hard, but you don’t have to do it alone. We all experience seasons of challenge, relational upsets, or sorrow. Whatever the circumstances, First Medina offers help to get you through difficult seasons, or if you just want to grow. Our Support Groups are safe, friendly, caring groups of people who have gone through some of life’s most difficult experiences and need others who have experienced those same difficulties to walk alongside them. No matter where you are at on your journey, you are welcome here with others who want to help.

If you have questions about groups for adults, contact Steve Lytle at
