Know Your Neighbor |Acts 17:16-34 | Be A Neighbor

Life Groups at the Orchard are places where people can connect with one another and discuss things they are learning in their lives as they participate Sundays at church. Our hope for you is that you would take some time to learn what God might be saying to you through your community.

We have several life groups that meet as part of Orchard Community Church in Escondido that meet all throughout North County San Diego. Our goal in encouraging people to be part of life groups is to challenge our community to 1) gather & 2) grow.

We have developed some questions, as you will see below, that are designed to help you both 1) discuss & 2) study. We hove you find these questions to be helpful and challenging!
