Encountering and doing life with others is a great way to discover community and purpose. Life Groups help you connect with people who share the same interests, have the same passions, and want to build community. We encourage you to join a Life Group because life is not meant to be lived alone!
Types of Groups
Home Groups meet in homes located around the Collin County area. These groups meet with the sole purpose of walking through life with people in similar stages and building community with other individuals in Genesis Church.
Impact Groups are strategic groups that meet to help people grow in their relationship with Christ or to help make a difference in our community. These include groups such as Bible studies, financial classes, and Divorce Care.
Interest Groups give opportunities for those with similar interests to connect by doing what they love. From basketball to scrapbooking, there’s a group for everyone. If we don’t already have a group that fits your interest, consider starting your own!
Leading a Group
You don’t need to have it all together to lead a Life Group—you just have to be willing to let God use you. We believe God uses Life Groups to change people’s lives, and as a leader, you get to be a part of that. Here are the qualities of a Life Group leader.
Qualities of a Life Group Leader:
• Have a growing relationship with God
• Have a passion for others to grow in their faith
• Live a Christ-honoring life style
• Possess a healthy prayer life

FAQ About Life Groups
Life Groups are an exciting way for you to meet and connect with others at Genesis Church! By meeting in homes across the area in a Home Group, having a great time doing something you love in an Interest Group, or making a difference through an Impact Group, our groups provide a great environment for people to engage in meaningful relationships by discovering community and purpose. Life Groups are focused on building relationships, growing together in your walk with God, and praying for one another.
Each Life Group is different, so each group has its own time that it meets. Our groups are semester-based. Most Home Groups and Impact Groups meet on a regular basis being weekly or every other week, while Interest Groups typically meet for different events throughout the year. Events and meeting times are displayed on the page for each group.
Not every group provides childcare but of those that do, some groups offer childcare at the home where they meet while others have childcare at a separate location. When inquiring about a group online, you can ask the leader how their group organizes childcare.
Life Groups are comprised of three group types – Home Groups, Impact Groups, and Interest Group. Home Groups consist of around 12 people who meet regularly in homes all throughout the area. Impact Groups are strategic groups that focus on people growing in their relationship with Christ. Interest Groups are geared towards individuals connecting with others who share the same interests and passions. Groups are available for adults of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity. To get started you will search for a group based on a few criteria (stage of life, interest, location). From there you can read the descriptions of the various groups to find a group that’s a good fit for you.
Joining a Life Group is simple and done all online on our website. Click the “JOIN A GROUP” button located at the top of this page. There you can:
1. CHOOSE YOUR GROUP TYPE: Select which type of group you are interested in. By clicking on the type of group you are interested in joining, you can then see a list of the groups available.
2. FIND: Find a Life Group to visit.
3. CONNECT: Connect with the Life Group by contacting the leader if you have any questions or by joining the group and attending the next scheduled event.
Our goal at Genesis Church is to help you find meaningful relationships in which you can grow. We understand that it may take checking out two or three different groups to find the right fit. With that in mind, we encourage you to give each group a few weeks before trying a new one. It usually takes a few weeks for people to break the ice and begin connecting.
