Fall All-Church Small Group Experience – “A Season of Growing”

Soil is prepared.  Fertilizer applied.  A seed is planted.
Rain comes.  A few sprouts break through the ground.
At the right time an entire field comes alive in life-filled greenery.
And so goes our lives as followers of Christ.

God didn’t plant the seed of Christ for no reason. It is no accident that 33 adults have committed themselves to you and God by being group facilitators for our brief small group experience, “A Season of Growing.

God wants you to be growing in faith and fellowship with other Christians.

Small Group Bible Study/Fellowship has been shown for years and from church to church as an extremely meaningful way for faith and fellowship to grow. A Season of Growing is an opportunity for you to discover that same thing.

God has prepared and planted. A few people have sprung up. It is time.
Join with others to make the field of God at LCR and beyond come more alive.

God is calling you now to grow closer to Him?

The pastors and church leaders of LCR are encouraging all worshiping adults to take part in this 5- to 6-week small group experience. This program is not a commitment to a never-ending activity. It is a call and opportunity to experience the small group Bible study/fellowship life for a short term. Once you’ve completed the fall sessions, you are free to continue, discontinue, and/or try another group or form of faith development.

Sign-up will run through Sunday, September 15. Lists with the day and time of study are posted in the gathering space. The topic of study will be the same with each group, following the Sunday preaching scripture. Sign up as an individual, couple, or group of friends. If you are in a current fellowship, service, activity, or Bible study group you may sign your entire group up together.
