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.

      Just like Superman, who can leap over any hurdle and defeat every foe, followers of Christ have the supernatural ability to conquer the challenges we face. But the problem for both Superman and us is there's a kryptonite that steals our strength. Of course, both Superman and kryptonite are fictional. But spiritual kryptonite is not. This Life Group will be diving into the 12 week DVD Bible Study "Killing Kryptonite" by John Bevere. Killing Kryptonite offers answers to why so many of us are unable to experience the divine strength that was evident among first-century Christians.
