Small Group Ministry
As churches grow, it is important that members find a place where they feel connected to others as they grow in faith and love. Following the pattern of New Testament Christianity found in Acts chapter 2, many of our families meet in homes to study God’s word, to pray, and to develop life-enhancing relationships through fellowship. Our Small Groups are made up of diverse groups of people from all walks of life who come together for a time of prayer, Bible study and fellowship. Groups are open to everyone and we welcome your visit.
Hearing Jesus’ call to minister to the poor, we have developed some of our ministries to help meet the physical needs of our friends and neighbors. A portion of our budget is dedicated to provide financial assistance when deemed appropriate.
As a church centered on the word of God, we provide many opportunities for study. Various ministries that help us to achieve that goal are Adult Education, Youth/Children’s Education, Ladies Bible Class, as well as various other groups that meet regularly for fellowship and bible study.
Those serving in this ministry understand how important our guests are. Their goal is to make each guest feel welcome here at LVCOC, and to provide those guests with information about our church family that will help them to make an informed decision about their future involvement with us.
We recognize that true worship extends beyond our weekly gatherings, but it is during those times of community fellowships that we are especially able to extend our praise in worship to God. This ministry meets monthly to plan those worship experiences and to coordinate the activities of those who will be involved in leading worship.
