What is a Community Life Group?

At Magnolia Bible Church we emphasize the importance of enriching our understanding of what it means to be a follower of God. While Worship and Bible Study are the foundations of this journey, we also recognize the significant impact of connecting intimately with small groups of fellow believers to grow with God and others through Bible-based discussions, shared life experiences, and prayer support. At Magnolia Bible Church we call our small groups’ Community Life Groups, or CLGs. These groups may consist of couples or singles, young or mature, church members or not. But they all share a love of God and each other. Our CLGs typically are composed of 4-8 households who meet bi-weekly in local homes or any appropriate location of their choosing.

The CLG program incorporates important aspects of the Christian life:

  • Worship and Praise
  • Interaction with the Word
  • Sharing and Prayer
  • Fellowship
  • Service

And have no doubt about it, we do have fun in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

If you would like to join, host or lead a group, please contact Tim Blackford. Indicated below are the approximate locations of MBC’s current CLG’s. Click on these locations for more information about the CLGs in your area.

Our primary mission is to support and encourage one another during this hectic stage of life and we want to welcome new MBC families to our home. Our home group sessions are informal…with social time and potluck dinner.
