Living in community in the form of groups has been a longstanding value of Memorial Park Church. We offer two pathways to help you get connected: by starting or joining a LIFE Group and by serving in a ministry at the church. Our list of active groups changes often, but if we don't already have a group that meets your interests, we can help you start one!
LIFE Groups at Memorial Park are a place to CONNECT with God and others, CARE for one another through joys and sorrows of life, and GROW in our faith as we help one other apply God's truth and Word. They are a great place to ask questions, express opinions, and relate scripture to our lives. We desire for our groups to reach out to others in their everyday lives with loving-kindness. This simple act of intention can be life changing for a hurting person.
LIFE Groups come in all shapes and sizes—with groups of married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, life stage, at the church or in homes —the list goes on. No two groups are alike, people gather for many reasons, and the expressions and experiences of each group will look different because of the unique gifts, personalities, and passions of the people involved.

2019 LIFE Group Fall Launch
The LIFE Group Ministry is excited to offer sermon-based LIFE Groups this fall for our series on the book of Daniel. This group will give you the opportunity to discuss the sermon and how it applies to your life. Whether you want to attend with your existing LIFE group, or are interested in joining a LIFE group, we would be happy to have you! We will provide the food, childcare, discussion guides, and the space for 4 weeks. Our hope is that you will want to continue as a LIFE Group meeting on your own. We will gather together beginning Wednesday, September 11 through October 2. Dinner and childcare begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by prayer and discussion from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Huston Room.
Our vision is to establish LIFE Groups in our neighborhoods. However, we understand the challenges of bringing a group together. That is why we want to provide the space (and childcare) to develop and strengthen those relationships. Whether you want to attend as an existing group, or looking to join a group, please connect with us every 2nd and 4th Wednesday starting at 6:30 p.m. Let us know if you're interested!
