Life Groups

Why Life Groups?

LHC Life Groups have one, single purpose, to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in community with others and only then can we experience the full life He intended for us. Life Groups are the place where relationships are established, wounds are healed, and purpose is realized. It is our desire for you to get plugged into a group so you can add value to peoples’ lives and they can add value to yours!

    What is a Life Group?

    An LHC Life Group is made up of people who do life together. People gather for all sorts of reasons whether it is playing a sport, spending time at the park, having lunch during the work day, or studying the Bible. The point is not what you meet about, it’s that you are regularly meeting with people and living in community as God designed you to.

      LIFE GROUP: Family Dinner
      Leader: Darlene Hamlin

      There is something special about sitting around a table sharing a meal. You have an opportunity to connect and share in ways you may not if the food wasn't involved.

      The Life Group ministry at Living Hope Church understands the importance of connections and family. Family can is defined in many ways. We want our "Family Dinner" to be one of a variety of people from different generations, family status, culture, and more to meet and enjoy a meal together.

      Our first Family Dinner will be on Sunday, September 20th, at Living Hope Church following the morning service. The church will provide the meal, and we will provide safe social distancing, spacing, and groups to be a part of.

      We will also provide Family Dinner options for our online church through ZOOM groups.

      To make your reservation, text the word, DINNER to 219-552-8053.

      We look forward to celebrating our church family and growing connections through our Family Dinner.
