“Growing while sharing life together” (Acts 2:42-47)


At The Cause, we don’t just want to attend church – we want to share life together. As you develop genuine friendships with other believers, you experience growth and victory in your relationship with Jesus. Not only are you ministered to and cared for on a personal basis, but God uses your life experiences, personal testimony, and gifts and abilities to love and minister to others.

What is a Life Group?
A Life Group is a caring community of people who grow spiritually while sharing life together. Each group meets twice a month in a local home or business for fellowship, Bible discussion, and prayer. As part of a Life Group, you will:

  • Build great friendships with others.
  • Strengthen your relationship with God.;
  • Be loved unconditionally.
  • Be prayed for faithfully.
  • Be ministered to individually.

Where are Life Groups located?
There are various locations in Brea and the surrounding cities in Orange County and L.A. County. Most Life Groups meet in homes; some meet at work or in public places like Starbucks.

Are there different types of Life Groups?
Yes.  Most groups are “open”, meaning that anyone is welcome to attend.  Some groups provide their own childcare.  There are also groups that are targeted for a specific type of person, including:

  • Married couples
  • Men
  • Women
  • Spanish-speakers
  • Junior High and High School students (also called “D-Groups”)
  • Young adults, age 18-30ish

Life Groups are always open for you to join at any time, but re-launch every few months.  We are confident that there is a Life Group that will meet your needs.

How can I join a Life Group?
There are three simple ways to find the perfect group for you:

1. Stop by the Connection Center before or after a weekend worship service.

2. Contact Judy Walker to find out more information about the Life Group nearest you. You can call her at the church office 714.255.0930 or email her at

Who is the Holy Spirit and exactly what does He do?  Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious and confounding.  Why is the third person in the Godhead – the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort – the source of such confusion?

In The God I Never Knew, you’ll discover that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship – to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend.  This insightful and biblically-based curriculum moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life.

It’s time to experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh new way – to meet the God you have never known.
