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.
Standard Procedure for COVID:
Due to the nature of this season, the KSM team is currently preparing for the LifeGroups 2020-2021 school year as normal. We recognize these are uncertain times and our goal is to provide an organized and sustainable plan in order to ensure the health and safety of students, leaders, and host homes while allowing the discipleship of students to take place. As the parent and primary disciple maker of your home, we understand if you are not comfortable allowing your child to meet in person and there is no pressure for your family to choose to do so. These are hard times to make decisions and our team is intending to go about this in the wisest way we know how. Please Note: Return to LifeGroup procedures and protocols are subject to change as the governing authorities and county health officials provide updated guidance. We appreciate your grace, understanding, and flexibility in these challenging times. With that said, listed below will be mandatory safety protocols and clear expectations regarding LifeGroups for the fall semester in order to attend:
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.
