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.
