Lamb of God Small Groups
"Daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ." - Acts 5:42
Small groups help the church stick together
In an increasingly busy and stressful world, it is easy for individuals to feel isolated and disconnected. In Christ’s body, the church, we discover our connection to Christ and to other believers. Yet especially in large congregations, personal connections can be hard to make. Small groups are one of the key ways to experience our connection to others. Small groups make large congregations feel small and help the church stick together.
Small groups at Lamb of God
- Grow in their relationship with their Savior
- Care for one another in the ups and downs of life
- Reach out by serving the community and inviting others to join the group.
Small Groups are many and varied. Typically, they consist of 5-12 individuals, who meet either weekly, twice a month, or monthly. People join small groups according to where they live, what life stage they are in, what is being studied, or how often they meet. Those who participate in small groups have found their group to be welcoming and supportive, a community providing spiritual growth in understanding, faith, and knowledge of God’s Word. Our lives can be truly transformed when we meet together for one another in Christian love.
