LIFE2Life discipleship groups

Life2Life discipleship groups are smaller groups of 3-4 people or 3-4 couples, designed to teach the biblical foundation, and provide practical tools and accountability to help you grow in your Christian walk as a witness. These groups serve to encourage you to further develop the lifestyle of being a witness in your real-life relationships where God has placed you. 

Jesus said "as the Father has sent Me, I also send you." This 18-week journey will help you take the next step in living as a witness for Jesus!

Groups may meet in homes or here at the church. Time and place will be decided by the group leaders. Click HERE for a list of group leaders. If you have questions that need to be answered before you make a final decision, please contact one of the group leaders. They will be happy to share their excitement for Life2Life.

Our men’s groups meet regularly, and their primary purpose is to help men grow in their relationship with God and build deep friendships with other godly men.  A natural result of this is spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families and churches. Also, a small group setting facilitates solid and deeper friendships with other men.

Women’s ministry goal is to teach and encourage women of all ages and life situations to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.  There are a variety of Bible study options and frequent social activities.  We want to challenge the women of Maranatha to seek Christ continually, serve Christ faithfully, and share Christ boldly in every sphere of their lives.

While the Bible nowhere gives us a commandment like, “Thou shalt be an official church member”, Jesus and the apostles who followed Him put great emphasis on the need for Christians to have strong, healthy, committed relationships with each other – especially with those they worship among each week (John 15:12-17 and 1 John 4:7-11). We believe that entering into church membership helps to define and unify a local church family and we encourage those who make Maranatha “home” to pursue official membership.

Our “Connecting with MBC” membership class is offered a couple of times each year. For more details, ask an Elder, contact Greg Forseen, or the church office.  

marriage mentoring

At Maranatha, we’re serious about helping couples build marriage relationships that glorify God and reflect His love for us to others. To that end, we are committed to frequently providing Sunday school classes, small group studies and Sunday morning sermons focused on God’s blueprint for marriage.

Another way we seek to assist couples whose marriages may have hit a rough spot or who simply feel like they need a “tune-up” is through a partnership with other local churches to provide individual mentoring for
pre-married and married couples. Currently, several MBC couples have been trained as marriage mentors who agree to meet regularly with a “mentee” couple to help them resolve conflict, improve communication and reignite their love and care for one another.
