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.
Adult Christian Education Classes meet on Sunday at 9:45am
The Alma Owen Class meets in the second room on the left down the hallway from the Gathering Area. Martha Caudill is the teacher of this class. The main theme for the Spring 2014 quarter is the fulfillment of scriptures through Jesus. This includes the covenant with David, Jesus triumphal entry, His trial and resurrection, and Jesus confrontation with the religious leaders. Passages come from the Old Testament, the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation. We welcome and encourage you to join us in discussing and sharing these.
The Conversation Class led by Richard Bohart meets in the first room down the hall from the Gathering Area (right beside the Alma Owen Room). This class has been together for many years and has a foundation of care for its members. The material used is the David C. Cook Sunday School material.
The Discipleship Class led by Phil Lambeth uses the David C. Cook materials—same as the Conversation Class.
The Fulp-Garwood Class led by Jeff Fulp and Barbara Garwood is studying the Book of Revelation. This class meets in the parlor of the office building.
