Digging A Deeper Faith
LIFE Groups are an exciting way for you to meet others at Living Hope Lighthouse. Life 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. LIFE 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.
LIFE Groups are typically organized by geographical location and or personal preference. However, there are a few specialized L.I.F.E. Groups. There is a college student/young adult group as well as a women's L.I.F.E. Group and the Men's Ministry L.I.F.E. Group. They meet in homes at various days and times during the week. Additional development of the Sunday worship sermon and/or mre specified and intense Bible study is an important aspect of the group meetings. Groups also send a portion of time every week sharing and praying for one another's needs, concerns, and joys. Fellowship and service are also important.
L.I.F.E. stands for Living In Fellowship Everyday. Each members of a LIFE Group is encouraged to live in fellowship with God and others every day. We hope you'll feel at home and connect in a healthy, dynamic, LIFE Group that helps you grow in your relationship with God.
If you want to join a LIFE Group, please fill out a Connect Card on Sunday. They are located in any of the church pews. You can also e mail the church office and we will be sure to connect you to a group.
Are you curious about Christian faith? Have you recently made a spiritual decision? Attending a Growth Group may be for you! Perhaps you’ve gone to church many times but you’ve never gone deeper in your faith. You’ve wanted to grow, but no one took the time to guide you. The Growth Group book, enLIGHTen Discipleship Program, can help. You won’t be alone; someone will guide you through the journey.
Growth Groups begin at various times throughout the year, actually just about anytime you’re ready. Your journey begins by meeting a few hours a week for 12 weeks with 1-2 others. A mentor will guide you through your spiritual growth in an atmosphere of love and learning. You will delve deeper in topics such as the Bible, prayer, and spiritual habits.
If you are interested in joining a Growth Group please complete a Connect Card or e mail the church office.
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.
Body Building: LHL Membership Class
This class is the basic introduction to our church family and is required for church membership. There are four sections:
Living Hope Lighthouse also offers a variety of Discipleship Classes throughout the year. These classes are held quarterly and on varying days and times. Classes include a wide number of topics such as: improving your marriage, Biblical surveys, the cultural/geographical background of Scripture, evangelism strategies, world religions, wise financial stewardship, etc.... Anyone from any church is welcome to come and attend any of these classes/seminars. With these classes, we hope LHL will become a sort of Christian learning center for the community.
The vision of Men’s Ministry is to encourage fellowship, engage the community and equip men to spiritual maturity. We believe that men will grow in their relationship with God and with other men in the context of various social settings, service projects, and spiritually enriching programs and ministries. That is why LHL is committed to providing our men with opportunities to do just that. Throughout the year, the Men's Ministry organizes and participates in social and outreach events designed specifically for men as well as in depth Bible studies that pertain to a multitude of men's issues.
As men grow in their faith, they are transformed into the very image of Christ. Please join the men of LHL as they glorfy the Living God through Christian fellowship, community outreach, and obedience to God's Word through submission to His rule in every aspect of daily life.
