RC Groups

At REAL, our desire is to be a resource for you and your family as you walk the path to lasting life change in Christ. RC Groups are your opportunity to connect and build relationships in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment. We, as people, were built by God to have relationships with others. We need more than casual relationships like you find with Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We need genuine and authentic relationships – relationships where we can know others and be known by them. These relationships can protect us from isolation and help us draw closer to God.

RC Life Groups

We offer three semester based Life Group seasons each year (Fall, Winter and Spring).  Life groups are usually made up of 10-12 people who meet in homes to study biblical principles. Each semester will last between 6 and 10 weeks, depending on the topic of study. At REAL, our desire is to be a resource for you and your family as you walk the path to last life change in Christ. Life groups are your opportunity to connect and build relationships in a safe, fun and encouraging environment. With a simple commitment of one night a week, for 8 to 10 weeks, you can build relationships that will help you draw closer to God and others here at REAL.

RC Connect Groups

Connect Groups are based around common interests. Once you have been introduced to who we are here at REAL (through a weekend service, life group, or connection event), you may want to spend more time with your new friends doing activities that you all enjoy. For example, a Connect Group may be based around a physical activity like running or biking, or a hobby like painting or photography.  Connect Groups are designed to fit the lifestyles and interests of the members, so the groups may not meet as regularly as our Life Groups. The leader of each connect group will establish the meeting time, location, regularity and duration of the group.

RC Groups are coming to a neighborhood near you the week of January 21st.


Statements of Christ

There’s hardly anything better than a great one-liner. There are certain statements that have been made by certain people throughout history that were delivered in such a transcendent way that they have lived on in infamy. Statements like, “Speak softly and carry a big stick” by Teddy Roosevelt, or “There’s no place like home” by Dorothy, or the most legendary of all, “I’ll be back” by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Jesus had no shortage of one-liners Himself. Over the next 6 weeks we will spend time looking at some of the most powerful statements Jesus made while He was here on this earth, what they actually mean, and how we can apply them to our lives.

In this study you will challenge yourself in the discipline of daily Bible study, gain practical advice for knowing and understanding God’s voice through His Word, learn to recognize the Holy Spirit’s character, language, and tone of voice, experience a deeper relationship with God, and strengthen your daily walk with Him.

Biblical Application



The Bible says in James 1:22 “Don’t just listen to God’s Word, you must do what it says.” We want to teach God’s men how to apply the Bible to their lives for themselves, not just give them the answers. We all must do more than study God’s Word for memorization, but rather learn to apply it. Being able to apply God’s Word to our lives is what God intended and what He calls us to do. “If you give a man a fish you have fed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you have feed him for a life time.” Let’s go fishing!
