CONNECT GROUPS

We Believe In Connecting People to People and People to Jesus

What’s A Connect Group?

Connect Groups center around building relationship with one another through fellowship, prayer, and conversation centered around what God is doing in our hearts and lives. We believe that God created us to live in community with others so that we can experience the full life He intends for us. Connect Groups meet in local homes, coffee shops, and on Lakeshore campuses. Some groups even meet online both for convenience and for those not ready to attend an in-person group yet. Our groups meet throughout the week and are for different ages and stages of life. Scroll below to see the many group options we have.

Most of our current groups are Sermon-Based groups which means they discuss the message from Sunday service and how it applies to our everyday lives. We also have some groups that do topic based Bible studies throughout the year, and this is outlined under the group description when you sign up.

Want To Go Deeper In A Group?

While Jesus did not prescribe a particular discipleship formula or program, in light of the commission He gave His followers in Matthew 28 to make disciples, we believe discipleship necessitates some intentionality on our part. To put it simply, a disciple is a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ…Not perfect, but following the One who is. We believe as we consistently engage the Word of God together in community, seeking to apply it to our lives, with the help of the Holy Spirit, we will grow as a result! Inside of our Sermon-Based Connect Groups, you can engage and participate in the “Going Deeper” portion to aid in maximizing spiritual growth and discipleship.

 Under Contract

In our new series we will be going through a study called, “Under Contract.” Have you ever read something in the Bible, knew it was true, but somewhere in your mind you questioned its reality for you? Whatever the cause, there is this nagging whisper that you heard saying, “What the Bible promises, cannot be taken literally, at least not for me.”

But the truth is- God’s Word is true! He never lies! He is always faithful! And, if He said He would do something then He will do it!

“Connect groups have helped me break out of my comfort zone to meet new people and provides a safe place to have biblically sound discussions that help me learn and grow in my faith and to have an amazing group of women who supports and prays for one another.”

“Our connect group has been an extended family for us. We are able to laugh together, cry together, and grow in our relationship with God and with each other. We are so thankful for this group, and we are looking forward to this next season!”

Eben & Danielle Eddy

“I love how we share needs, pray together and then watch how the Lord works. People who didn’t know each other can become family within a short period of time. The body of Christ is a beautiful thing and everyone would really benefit from being in a connect group!”
