How to Create a Group

Print Friendly and PDF


Faithlife is your online community for fellowship with other believers. Within your Faithlife group, you can share posts, schedule events, make prayer requests, send newsletters, and share notes from your Bible reading.

To create a group, follow these steps.

1. Click the plus icon next to “Groups” on the home page.


2. Select a group type. 


3. Enter your information.

Once you’ve selected a type, enter your group’s basic information, including a name and location. A location makes your group more discoverable for others in your area. To control the privacy of your group, set its privacy level. Click Next when done.


Since you're creating a church group, you’ll be presented with the option to create typical subgroups. You can also use the search box on this page to select Faithlife groups that have already been created.


Tip: You can affiliate an existing presentation group with your church group while creating your church group. Search for the presentation group and connect them.

You can configure subgroups at anytime, not just when you create your group. Learn more about creating a new subgroup or affiliating an existing group.

Once your group is created, take some time to invite others to your community. Learn more here.

Note: As an administrator or moderator, you can configure your group's settings and permissions.
