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
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.
