Little Church on the Lane has a history of small groups helping people to grow together as a church family while learning more about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In each group we urge people to fellowship together, pray for one another, learn from good teaching and serve one another in and out of the group. Thus each group becomes a way to experience life with other believers. Paul says to ”be transformed by the renewing of your minds.” Our life groups on Sunday morning and during the week help provide for our renewing.
You are invited to participate in one or more Life Groups. Those on Sunday morning begin at 9:45 a.m. with a breakfast at 9:00 a.m. There is a variety of groups with a variety of subjects available. If there are some who desire a particular subject or topic which is not being offered, please let the staff know and it can be started. Please review the descriptions of each class and choose a group to participate in. You may visit the various classes to help you decide. You are also invited to change classes in order to participate in a topic which interests you.
