Life Groups

Discover how Westtown Church pursues community and how you can find your place to belong

Community is essential to Christian living and spiritual growth – like oxygen is essential to physical life and growth.


So what happens in Christian community?

Without a deeply connected, loving community, we miss a rich understanding of the gospel, miss knowing the heart of God, and miss out on what God intends for us. Jesus himself is present when we love one another.

We weren’t made to go through life alone.

Our Life Groups aim to join people together, whether through a shared interest or because they are in similar life stages. We believe that community is essential to Christian living, and we want to help you find the best place to experience spiritual growth, and find a place to belong at Westtown Church.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”
1 John 4:7, 12

What Should I Expect?

The goal of joining a Life Group at Westtown Church is to develop your walk and faith journey around people that can support you in taking your next steps towards building a personal relationship with Jesus. We believe everyone needs a place to belong, and Life Groups are the first step in building God–honoring and encouraging relationships with those around you.

We structure our Life Groups in 3 categories.

1. Study

These groups are either for men, women, couples or co-ed.  They all have some form of a study component to them.  Either a book of the Bible or a Bible-based book.

2. Season of Life

These groups are designed for people who are in a similar stage of life. We have everything ranging from singles to couples to married with children to empty nesters.

3. Special Interest

These groups are for folks with a common interest. We have running/fitness groups, golf groups, beer and Bible groups, etc.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is childcare provided?
While most groups have a solution for tending to the kids, not all Life Groups offer childcare. Make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare. Some Life Groups will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. This is up to the discretion of the leader for each Life Group
How often do Groups meet?
Life Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some choose to meet every week, bi-weekly, or once a month. When you sign up for a Life Group, you can specify your meeting time preferences.

Where do Groups meet?
Life Groups meet in homes, restaurants, and coffee shops in and around our Westtown community in Tampa. We will help you find a Group near you based on sign-up preferences.
