Community Groups

Doing life together

The purpose of LHC Community Groups is to help members encounter Christ, to grow in relationship with one another and to workout mission into our local communities.

In Community Groups, people talk through life issues, eat together, pray together, laugh together, serve together and do mission together. Community Groups usually consist of between 8-20 people with various backgrounds and stories.

Community Groups provide a context for effective pastoral care and accountability, and function as the main way for the church body to be family together.

We have groups that meet weekly all year long in St. Joe and in Maryville. Check one out this week.
