Creating space to share life together and experience life in Christ to the full

Life Groups are about growing and sharing life together as we experience life to the full in Christ. We believe that the more Jesus is present in each of us and among us in our communal life, the more we grow to experience life with God and life as God intended it. 

These aren’t just small groups, social gatherings, or Bible studies. Life groups are the primary space where we live out the mission of our church in everyday life to make disciples who Love, Think, and Act like Jesus. As we practice key rhythms of the Christian life together, we see deep friendships made, lives transformed, the lost reached, and our city blessed. None of us can experience the beauty, power, and joy of life as God intends for us without a commitment to regular Christian fellowship.

At The District Church, we believe that our impact as a church community will be most fully realized through life group communities living out the gospel across the DC metro area. The District Church began as a small group of people who shared a vision to impact their city for Christ, and life groups continue to function as the engine of spiritual growth in our church. Our desire is for everyone at our church to experience this transformative community and join us as we grow together to realize our vision of impacting our city for Christ one neighborhood at a time.

Are you ready to join us on this journey of growth and transformation? 

If you are new to our church or have not yet experienced our life groups, we encourage you to start by joining Rooted first to learn what Life Groups at TDC are all about and experience their life-changing power for yourself. Learn more about Rooted and sign up here.

If you’ve been here for a while and are looking to get plugged in, or are in between groups right now, you can use the map + filter search below to explore our list of life groups (you can use the checkbox feature to search for groups that are currently "open" to new members). Once you've identified a group that interests you, you're welcome to reach out directly to the group leaders to learn more about the group by clicking the "Join" button and completing the contact form. Our groups meet on a trimester basis with breaks throughout the year. 

For this Fall 2023 season, Life Groups start on Monday, September 11th, and run through Sunday, December 10th.
