64x64-grow01 What are Life Groups?

When Jesus was asked to name the most important command in all the Bible, He named two: love God and love others. Life Groups (small groups) and Adult Bible Fellowships (Adult Sunday School classes) are our way, here at Living Word, of helping people connect with God and with others.


At Living Word Church, Life Groups and Adult Bible Fellowships are the best place for sustained life change to occur. In Life Groups and Adult Bible Fellowships people study God's Word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life it addresses. Life Groups and Adult Bible Fellowships are where people can pray and care for one another while growing deeper in their relationship with God.

64x64-grow01 Life Groups  (Currently forming)

We are in the process of Small Groups Training and will be launching a number of NEW Life Groups soon, which will be meeting weekly (in some cases bi-weekly) and in the homes of various members.  Plan to attend one of these life changing groups for spiritual growth, impact, and caring.  In a church the size of L.W.C., it is important for you to get involved in a smaller circle of believers for spiritual intimacy and fellowship.  Look for announcements and information in the coming months as we get the Life Groups up and running strong!
