Learning the Bible in a small group setting

Involvement in service opportunities in  and with the group

Friendships can be formed with one another in the group

Encouragement through prayer and praise with others

Are you looking for a place where everyone knows your name? A place that offers the encouragement of friendship and the support of prayer? A place to grow in your relationship with God? Then a LIFE Group is for you. LIFE Groups are Adult Bible study classes on designed to help you identify with others about the same age and “stage of life”.

Lighthouse Baptist is a family and the many Life Groups are smaller families within that family. LIFE Groups are small groups of 10 to 20 adults that meet on Sunday mornings before the main worship service. The many different groups are more than a place to sit back and simply reflect on our faith. They are a launching pad for us to be a reflection of Christ to the world around us.

Because you are important to God, it is important to us that you find the group that is your perfect fit. In these LIFE Groups, you will connect with others like yourself for Bible studies, friendships, and activities. So regardless of your age or background, there is a group for you, and every group has a seat available and waiting for you!

Enrolling in a LIFE Group suited to you means that you are part of a class where you can be ministered to. Once enrolled you will become part of a care group within that class that will minister to you during times of need in your life.

Whether you are new to Lighthouse Baptist or if you have been around for years, we encourage you to enrol in a LIFE Group tailor made for you. These smaller group settings are designed to create an environment where individuals could grow together in Christ and to exercise our faith in becoming more effectual for Christ. Groups meet on either Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday weekly.  Each service in Lighthouse Baptist Church is carefully planned and prayed over so that God may work in your life!
