It's Time to Connect with Other Christians!
There are many small groups at Light of Christ including Bible studies, book studies, social groups and special interest groups. Small groups are a great way to meet God face to face and see what it means to be connected with Him through other Christians. This is the way to get to know people at Light of Christ as you explore God's Word, connect, serve and play together. So jump in; there are women's and men's groups as well as mixed groups. Small groups are always forming for ongoing weekly and monthly gathering or short 6 - 8 periods around special studies/activities.
SOS - Support our Soldiers:
Don and Leslie Empie lead a group at Light of Christ for people who have family or friends serving in the military, or are simply looking for a way to help support our troops. This group is a place not only to talk with others, but will be organizing efforts to support the men and women serving our country. This group is for anyone with family or friends serving our country anywhere in the world. Thanks for considering the group and we hope to see you there. Questions? Contact Don or Leslie at 224.484.8689.
