LifeGroups are small groups of people that gather periodically in various locations and homes around town to share in life, activity, and conversation. The format is simple, laid back, non-threatening and very comfortable. The main news is... you’re invited!
Here in LifeGroups relationships are built, embraced, encouraged, and lived. These ongoing meetings are all about the kind of authentic community that only comes from spending time being close. You’ll find a place so comfortable you’ll be at ease sharing your heart as well as learning to listening to others’. We sincerely think you'll love it!
Here's a quick look at this semester's various groups. (email us for additional info)
1. AcaciaStudents / led by Pastors Blake and Rachel Tison
Wednesdays at 7:00 pm / Tison home
AcaciaStudents is a weekly LifeGroup for all middle and high school students. Here we follow Acacia’s monthly teaching series and discuss how that fits into each student’s life and walk with God. It’s all about connection to Christ, the church, and community. Our goal is to create a place for student’s to own their faith!
2. Men's Prayer/ led by Pastor Blake Tison
Tuesdays at 7:00 pm / Acacia Church
A weekly gathering for men to connect and pray, at the church from 7-7:50pm. Each week there will be a short devotion and time to pray individually and corporately. Our goal is to move forward in our relationship with God, our families, and our church.

Weekly fellowship for men over coffee and breakfast. This is a chance to discuss challenges we have at work and life.
5. Let's Get Together Couples Group/ led by Matt and Summer Anderson
Email us for times and places.
Have you ever found yourself saying, “Babe, let’s get together with them soon” and that “together” seems to never happen. Well, we have a Life Group for that. Matt and Summer Anderson will be helping couples be intentional about meeting new people. There will be meetings where everyone gets together, meetings where all the wives get together, and meetings where all the men meet. Plot twist: each couple will draw a name of another couple and will be praying for that couple as well as plan a “date night” with this couple at least once during the 8 week Life Group semester. It’s all about getting to know other people where they are and growing our circles outside of our comfort zones!
6. UnInvited/led by Jill Broussard and Amber Moreau
Sundays at 4:00 pm / Acacia Church Orange Room
Have you ever experienced feelings of rejection and struggled with self-worth? If so, we invited you to join us as we dig deeper into Lisa TerKeurst's book, Uninvited. Learn how to stop feeling left out and start overcoming the core fears that feed our insecurities by embracing God, honoring ways to process your hurt and understanding the secret of belonging.
7. Boats and Bootlaces! Part Deux/led by Justin Johnson
Saturday Mornings / Email us for times and places.
