Quite frankly, when we read the Bible nowhere do we read about God encouraging us to be lone rangers. Yeah, it’s often true that when we’re going through our darkest moments we want to go it alone, perhaps because of embarrassment or shame. Answers, encouragement, and the challenge to change are rarely found in isolation.
It’s in the context of community that we grow and share in the highs and lows of life. The Bible shows us that God’s original intent was that we would journey through life together, it also shows us two are better than one, and what Jesus came to do wasn’t just save you by His grace, but intentionally place you in a redemptive community where you would change as a result of the encouragement and challenge of others. So it’s in the context of Connect Groups that we believe your life is going to change the most. That’s where you’re going to grow.
When we regularly get together with other people on the same journey, that’s where we can be known, loved, celebrated and served. That’s church the way God meant it to be. If you’re simply planning on attending a weekend experience at LNLC, you’ll be missing out on a huge part of what we’re all about.
Our Connect Groups meet in host homes around our community for the dual purpose of fellowship and ministry. We run our Connect Groups by Quarter with a few weeks off in between. Our Winter Quarter will begin the week of January 22nd
WHY SHOULD I GET INVOLVED IN A CONNECT GROUP:
Connect groups are a great place to meet new people. Connect groups are a place where you will be encouraged to grow in your spiritual journey. Connect groups provide a safe place to bring your friends and relatives who may have reservations about attending a church. Connect groups also connect you to a team that helps meet the needs in your community.
