Discipleship Groups

Church isn’t just a worship service on Sunday morning; it’s sharing life, praying for one another, and helping each other. It’s digging deeply into God’s Word and reflecting on how to live it out together. It’s encouraging and challenging one another to grow as children of God as he transforms us by his Spirit.  And it should propel us into the world as ambassadors of the King.  We believe this happens best in smaller gatherings that meet regularly.  Find out how you can get involved!


Join a NEW Small Group This Fall!
If you are new to Lighthouse or looking for a small group, please check out these brand new 12-week groups that will begin meeting this Fall and study the book of Nehemiah. Sign up here! Contact Pastor Nancy for more info.

If you would still like to host or lead a small group as part of our all-church study of the book of Nehemiah, please contact Pastor Nancy. We could still use a few more hosts/leaders for these new small groups!


Here are addition resources for discipleship groups:

1.) How to do an Inductive Bible Study 

2.) Instructions for a Group Covenant 

3.) Sample Group Covenant 

4.) 6 Questions for Bible Studies

5.) Nehemiah Manuscripts

Discipleship groups meet throughout the week, both in the daytime and in the evening.  To sign up for a group, fill out the form below or contact Gail Chinn at karygail@yahoo.com.
