Christian life is more than 90 minutes on a Sunday! We love to hang out and get to know each other. Be prepared to make new friends!
What to Expect
We believe that God answers prayer. Countless times we have seen miracles because of the prayer in Life Groups. Every group incorporates a time of prayer into their meeting.
Each group usually has some form of discussion on a spiritual topic. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a scholar to engage in the discussion – you just have to be a real person!
Mmmmmm. There’s always a wonderful snack at Life Group. Some groups go all out and do a BBQ or a potluck.
Find a Group
You can find the perfect group for you - Life Groups
meet at many locations in Leduc and the surrounding areas.
Check out the groups below to explore the locations,
dates and study topics.
Nathan and Shauna Balehowsky | Leduc Caledonia
Nathan & Shauna have been at Daystar for almost five years. You will find Shauna helping in the Little Lambs room and Nathan greeting at the doors. They have 3 kids – Hanna, Alissa and Jared. When they aren’t watching their kids’ sport games they like to keep active at the lake in the summer and sledding in the winter.
Pastor Jerome and Reanna Caouette | Leduc Meadowview
Jerome and Reanna are a little bit crazy (You have to be kinda crazy to be youth pastors.) Having a background in construction, they are always knee-deep in a project and habitually bite off more than they can chew! They recently moved to the country with their four beautiful daughters. They love bike trips, board games, and pasta.
Pastor Sharla and Steve Keim | Leduc Meadowview
Chris and Shelley Neilson | Leduc Westhaven
Chris and Jody Nelson | Leduc Suntree
Chris and Jody have been overtaken by four wild children of their own: 2-9 years of age. So, they won’t judge you for yours. 😉 They’ve Daystar family for 16 years, and currently serve on the prayer team, children’s ministry, and worship ministry. Come join them for a brief but engaging Life Group in Leduc, usually running for about 60-90 minutes.
Seth and Angela Paine | Leduc Bridgeport
Originally from PEI, Seth & Angela Paine met at 14 years of age. Together for 31 years, married for 25 years! Work brought them from PEI to Vancouver Island in 2000. The Lord then brought them to Leduc and Daystar 6 years ago. They have 2 children: Samara, and Aaron. They like hiking, campfires, and eating out (no dishes…woohoo).
Jack and Deb Vanderhoef | Leduc Windrose
Jack and Deb are deacons at Daystar church and love serving. You’ll see them greeting at the doors, attending the debit desk, or on the Prayer Team. Jack and Deb have been married 34 years, have three grown children and four fabulous grandchildren. Jack’s love of his flower gardening keeps Deb happy with her love of receiving flowers.
Carman and Robin Doan | Calmar
Carman is a prodigal son, now happily back in God’s fold . He is creative and known for quirky Christian t-shirt designs. Robin believes there are 6 love languages – the 6th is to feed people! Their Life Group unofficially starts right after church on Sundays with a nice pot of soup and great fellowships, before the actual teaching at 2:30.
Ron and Grace Fink | Beaumont
Ron and Grace are young at heart but old enough to get the Senior’s discount at restaurants. They enjoy the company of friends of all ages and can hardly wait to get to know you. They hope to provide a friendly, casual, comfortable, and caring environment, where you’ll develop relationships that will outlast the Life Group season.
Pastor Nialle and Vanessa Travnik | Millet
Pastor Nialle and Vanessa have four kids and a large cat who has somehow made his way into their home. You can often find Nialle and Vanessa in the kitchen trying out new recipes or making old favourites. A little known fact about Nialle is that he is better at recalling past meals than he is remembering his own children’s birthdays.
Aaron and Renee Ursulak | Millet
Aaron and Rene have attended Daystar since the very beginning (22 years)! They have two married children and one adorable grandson. They enjoy filling their cozy Millet acreage with friends, coffee and chocolate! When they are not hosting, Aaron and Rene enjoy cruising around in and looking at classic cars.
