HCC Life Groups

At Herscher Christian Church we believe that growing in our faith is an essential part to living out the calling in which God has given us.  We strive to "live life together" in a way that not only provides friendship and fun but also glorifies God.  Check out these offerings for Life Groups at HCC and be in prayer about where God would place you!

Monday Evening (Young Adults): 7:30 - 9:00

As you step out into adult life, there are times where opportunities, challenges, and victories are around every corner.  What about time with God though?  Scott and Alicia have a passion for not only helping navigate these times, but challenging you to grow your faith.  Step outside of the comfort zone and dig into God’s Word.  Enjoy a time of fellowship, friendship, laughter, and spiritual growth.

Wednesday evening (men and women): 6:30 - 7:30

Sometimes you walk out of a Sunday sermon feeling like you’ve just understood the tip of the iceberg.  This group is for diving into the previous week’s sermon in more depth.  What more can we learn from the scripture that we studied?  How does it impact me personally?  What lessons can I put into practice in deepening my personal walk with Jesus?  Come and discuss these things and more.

Taught by Brian & Carmin Joffe

Location: HCC Classroom next to Fellowship Hall


wednesday evening (men): 6:30 - 7:30

The group is focused on empowering the men of our church and the surrounding area to be leaders for Christ.  Whether a new believer or a man that has been in the church for 60 years, all are welcome.  We are focusing on biblical teaching in a real and relatable way so that we are best equipped to be spiritual leaders for our families, in our community, or wherever we may go.  We meet in an open and inviting area at the Herscher Restaurant that gets our study out of the walls of the church and into the community.

Thursday morning (women): 9:00 - 10:30

God’s word is an ever present guide on how to address joy, hopefulness, struggle, pain, and refinement.  This group is specifically tailored for our daytime crowd that is looking for a place to plug in to study God’s word and be able to learn among fellow believers.  Ladies, here is a place to come and fellowship as you dive into the Word.  Come as we dive into not just the words on the page, but the picture painted by our savior.  We will be looking at scripture and reading Max Lucado's book "You'll Get Through This"

Taught by Katheryn Aardsma

Location: 4790 S 17000W Rd, Buckingham


friday morning (50+ men and women): 11:00 - 12:15

Through a lifetime of experience, success, failures, and God’s grace, the Keenagers group meets to expand knowledge of God’s word and promote a place of unity amongst our 50+ crowd.  Don’t be fooled though, there is no lack of energy here!  Come hungry, strap in, and dive into lessons of encouragement, unity, and growth in your Christian walk.
