Our groups are designed to help you experience how you can fully grow to know the love of Christ in every area of your life.

In Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado unpacks 12 of the Bible’s most significant promises, equipping you to overcome difficult circumstances by keeping your focus on the hope found in the promises of Scripture rather than dwelling on the problems in front of you.

Redeeming work: Bridging the Gap Between Faith and Work

James: Developing a Living Faith For a Successful Christian Life
Wednesday nights @ 7 beginning 3/20 at Cherie Avery’s
The book of James has so many valuable things to say about living a successful Christian life—a life of faith that not only brings us joy but also brings tremendous glory to God and blesses the lives of others.
So, are you ready to build your faith? You can, and God’s Word can help you do it! Join Joyce Meyer as she walks with you, chapter by chapter, through the book of James in this Bible study format. See Cherie or text 315-255-3901
FOLLOW: Learning to Follow Jesus

Are you new to the idea of following Jesus, or still exploring what you believe? Coming back to your faith, or grew up in a different tradition? Maybe you raised your hand in a service but you’re not sure where to go next. These first steps can set you on the right path. Join us for an 8-week book study and learn more about following Jesus. See Pastor Lauren or email email@example.com
Want to lead a Life Group?
Small groups are opportunities to connect with others who share our interests, to establish friendships that support each other, and to grow together in our relationships with each other and with Christ. They are the main way we at Lakes Church minister to each other on a personal level. They are the way we grow the church bigger (membership and attendance) by making it smaller (through more intimate relationships).
The free-market approach to Life Groups at Lakes Church gives us flexibility to form small groups based on almost anything of common interest. Whether you want to meet with people who are interested in a craft (like quilting or church maintenance and construction) or who want to delve more deeply into a particular book of the Bible, Life Groups are a way we can connect with people who have similar interests.
Email Lauren – firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in starting a small group.
