The purpose of LHC Community Groups is to help members encounter Jesus, grow in relationship with one another and to be intentional to serve in 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 place to gather for fellowship, accountability, and function as the main way for the church body to grow as a family together.
We have groups that meet weekly all year long. Check one out this week!
