LIFE GROUPS

The purpose of Life Groups at Lighthouse Community Church is to connect people and build community. We’ve termed them Life Groups for that reason: to allow simple avenues for people to do life together and be in community. While these groups do a number of things well, their ultimate purpose is community. Life Groups provide a great space for teaching and discussion, service opportunities inside the group, and opportunities to serve together as a group in the church and our community. They are ideally made up of 5 to 20 people growing in Christ and doing life together. This idea comes directly from the early church:

 

Acts 2:42-47 “The Community of Believers”
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
