Each week 6th-12th grade students meet in small groups in homes all over Katy to study God's Word and do biblical community together. This discipleship ministry is designed to help students grow and mature in their relationship with Jesus through five aspects:
We are blessed to have selfless leaders who step up to do life with their students and disciple them in the gospel.
One of the main aspects of LifeGroups is living missionally. Upon completing the year of LifeGroups, students are eligible to attend a summer mission trip. In the past, students who have completed LifeGroups have had the opportunity to do mission work in places such as Jordan, Nicaragua, Montana, Chicago and other areas.
We strongly encourage every student to join a LifeGroup. It is a great way to get plugged into the KSM and to grow in your faith! LifeGroups do not meet during the summer.
An important part of LifeGroups is leaders for the groups and host homes to meet in. You must register online to be a part of LifeGroups as a student, a leader or a host home. For people interested in serving as a leader or host home, please remember this is an application. The KSM staff receives many applications and prays through our leadership involvement and we appreciate your grace and prayers in the process.
