About Life Groups

Life Groups connect us to one another and are not a new thing. In fact, they date back to the very beginnings of church thousands of years ago. In Life Groups, just the like the early church, we get to form friendships, to know and be known, offer support and encouragement, and to grow closer to God.  In a small group environment, you get to ask big questions and wrestle with tough topics. Most importantly, we get to be together with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We aren’t meant to live life alone. We are meant to journey through it together.

Imagine being part of a Life Group who has a leader who is intentional about all of that. Someone who was able to foster a relational environment, and able to train you to be a disciple maker. Your knowledge and practical application of God’s word will grow exponentially as you join with others in the study of HIS word.

Cedar Crests Life Groups reflect Cedar Crests mission. We need to be together in order help each other grow in our faith and look for ways to share Jesus with people who don’t yet know him.

What are Life Groups Like?

Life Groups consist of 6-14 people that meet regularly in each other’s homes, building friendships and to helping one another grow in their Christian faith.


Adults of any age, marital status, ethnicity and socio-economic background are invited to join a group. We believe a diverse blend of experiences and perspectives is extremely helpful as we learn from and care for each other. No group is meant to be exclusive, but some groups become full. However, new groups are started on a regular basis.

Life Groups are designed to be safe places for people at any stage of their Christian walk. None of us have “arrived.” Our goal is the journey, not the destination. Group members work hard to establish trust as they share life with each other. They do this by holding things confidential, which leads to authentic relationships.

Whether our groups are discussing last Sunday’s message, studying Scripture or working through a specific topic, the Bible is always their foundation. Because God’s word changes people.

We want to make much of Jesus together, help each other grow in our faith, and look for ways to share Jesus with people who don’t yet know him.


Common Questions about Life Groups

When and Where do small groups meet?

Cedar Crest’s Life Groups meet in a variety of locations in the Lehigh Valley, both in homes and on the church campus. We have group meetings almost every day of the week, except on Wednesday evenings. Most of our groups meet in the evenings for a couple of hours twice a month.

Is CHILDCARE available?

Each group handles childcare in different ways, as needed. We want our families to be connected in groups. If you need a group with childcare in order to participate contact Pastor Adam or talk to a group leader and see what is available.

Do I have to be a member or a believer in Jesus Christ to join a Life Group?​

While we would love for you to be a believer in Jesus Christ and a covenant member with us here at Cedar Crest, belief and membership is not a necessary step in being part of a Life Group. However, all co-leaders are believers in Jesus Christ and also members of Cedar Crest.
