LIFE Groups at Apollo Beach


At Bell Shoals we believe that in order for people to connect with each other and grow in their faith they must be in a small group. It's where the big church becomes small. And it's where people can do life together.  We call our small group ministry "LIFE Groups." 

Our LIFE Groups have a multi-faceted purpose. While each participants' experience will be unique, they will include these common elements of LIFE: 

L – Learn
I – Invest
F – Fellowship
E – Extend 
LIFE Groups

Learn - through Bible study, discussion, and prayer; 

Invest - through missions and community service; 

Fellowship - through building and developing supportive Christian relationships; and

Extend - through inviting, mentoring, and evangelizing.


At Apollo Beach we have LIFE Groups that meet throughout the week, both on- and off-campus.  We would love to connect you with a group.  Please click the "I Want to Join" button below or email the LIFE Group that interests you from the selections below.

If you still have questions please give us a call at 813-641-2222. 

If you are interested in facilitating a LIFE Group or opening your home as a HOST home, please email our Associate Minister at
