New Life Connections

Fall Life Group Catalog

At New Life, we believe that relationships in small groups are key to spiritual growth. Jesus taught the crowds, but he focused on the Twelve; and they were the ones who grew the most. Our small group ministry is at the core of our church, and we encourage all New Lifers to join a Life Group, a LifeLinks Group, and/or a Ministry Team. Here are the groups for this semester:

Special Interest Groups

LifeLinks Groups

Groups that are more like a family or a team than a class
Christianity is a team sport – you’re best at it when you do it with a small group of people you can get to know...and learn from...and count on...and practice with. Our LifeLinks Groups are designed to help you get on a team and improve your game. These groups aren’t classes, and they’re not organized around topics. Instead, LifeLinks Groups are focused on building friendships and making progress together as disciples of Christ. These groups will help you and your teammates:

  • Connect and build Christian friendships,

  • Grow in your relationship to God,

  • Serve the Lord and others together, and

  • Expand God’s Kingdom as you welcome new people into your group and start new groups.

Here’s what you can expect at LifeLinks: You’ll become part of a group of 8 to 15 New Lifers with some things in common. You’ll meet each week at a home to share refreshments, find out how each other is doing, worship a little, encourage and pray for one another, enjoy an interactive Bible-study, and talk seriously about how you can make Christianity work in real life. Each group is led by a couple who really cares about you. It will be fun, and it doesn’t end after a semester!

If you want to be part of that, join a LifeLinks Group today. Groups meet on different days, at different times, in different homes, in different towns. There’s probably one near you. Within each LifeLinks Group, one or more members are preparing to lead another LifeLinks group in the next year or two. You can join an existing group or help start a new one.

Leaders: Richard and Christine Beatty; Dena and Daryl Johnson; Eric and Abby Leija; Jim and Sugene May; Travis and Kim Merritt; Jim and Micki Taylor; Bill and Linda Youngblood. For more information, contact Rusty Shelton at or Rene Shelton at
Meetings: Various nights, times, and homes in Denton, Sanger, and Krum (other locations added as needed). Childcare arrangements made by most groups.

Ladies’ Sunday Morning Bible Study: “Lioness Arising”

The Lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty. Her mere presence commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to change the world around them. The “Lioness Arising” 8-week video series by Lisa Bevere is a call for women to rise up in strength and number to change their world. Jesus is, after all, the lion of the Tribe of Judah. We are His lioness arising. (Workbook required, $10.00)
