"By this everyone will know you are my disciples, if you love one another."  John 13:35

What is a Group?

An Amazing Love group is a home fellowship of about 10-15 people who meet weekly to share, study and support one another.  A trained leader and host lead each group.  A typical meeting lasts about an hour and a half, accompanied by light refreshments.  

How do I Choose a Group?

When selecting a group, we strongly recommend you choose a group based on its leader and host team and Station-in-Life (common stage in life, common interests, or common needs), rather than its location.  We've found that groups do best when members share a common Station-in-Life and other interests with their leaders, hosts and other group members. In the end, you'll find its worth the drive!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the church (815-277-2192), and we'll gladly assist you.  

Want to Join a Growth Group?  

Download the "Church Center" app to find a group that fits your life style/needs.  You can ask to join a group right from the app.  Once in the app click on "groups" across the bottom.  All Growth Groups are located under the "Life Stage Groups" tab.

Why Consider Groups?

Groups are the place where we love and care for one another, and support each other through life's ups and downs. We make Christian friends, and we truly "do life together!"  Groups are the central hub and the lifeblood of our ministry.  They're the place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study God's word while supporting and sharing our lives with one another.
