L.I.F.E. Groups (Living In Fellowship Everyday)
L.I.F.E. Groups are an exciting way for you to meet others at Living Hope Lighthouse. L.I.F.E. Groups provide a fun-filled, relaxing environment for people to engage in meaningful relationships by doing life together.
In a large population, creating a sense of community and connecting with others is important. In the church, it's crucial. L.I.F.E. Groups are small groups within the larger church in which people of similar interests take care of the "one-anothers" in life. In a large church, it's important that community exists in order for relationships to be real and relevant.
L.I.F.E. Groups are typically organized by geographical location and /or personal preference. There are opportunities to participate in specialized L.I.F.E. Groups, as well. L.I.F.E. Groups meet in homes at various days and times during the week. Additional development of the Sunday worship sermon and/or more specified and intense Bible study is an important aspect of the L.I.F.E. Group sessions. L.I.F.E. Groups also spend a portion of time every week sharing and praying for one another's needs, concerns and joys. Fellowship and service are also important.
If you want to join a L.I.F.E. Group, please fill out a Connect Card on Sunday. They are located in any of the church pews. You can also contact the church office and we will be sure to connect you to a group.

Twice a year, Living Hope Lighthouse celebrates full immersion believer's baptism. One celebration is typically held in February and the other is in August. After the baptism ceremony, we spend some time in celebratory fellowship as we swim and share in delicious refreshments.
