Group Life

Everyone wants to CONNECT! Here at Lake Forest, we believe as the church grows larger we must grow smaller and more intimate through Groups. Jump in, make some new friends, and learn more about Jesus while you’re doing it!

One of the core values at Lake Forest Church is to ‘Journey like Jesus by living life together.’ Groups are gatherings of approximately 8-20 people who meet regularly to explore faith, celebrate the successes and good times of life, as well as comfort one another during the tough and disappointing times. Groups are made up of people from all spiritual backgrounds – skeptics, spiritual explorers and longtime followers of Christ. No one is expected to have all of the answers to Biblical questions or have life figured out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I join a Group?

We want to help people belong to a group of friends that help us grow in our faith, pray with us, and have fun with other people going through the same things you are.

What happens at a Group?

Every group is different but there are some common threads. Most groups have a time for hanging out, talking about the week and what’s going on in life. The central component is a study of something relevant to the members of the group. It may be the study of a book of the Bible, a topical book, learning from Jesus which incorporates Scripture, or following the sermons. Our groups are designed to facilitate friendship, encourage discussion, help us to pray and serve in community and engage each person in the process!

How long will my Group last?

Our Groups will last 8-12 weeks depending on the group and topic.

What if I want to join more than one Group?

You can join more than one group. What’s most important is that you commit to attend that group(s) for the semester.
