Life Connections Small Groups

Sign up here to be a small group host.

Let’s get together!

The purpose of small groups at PLC is simply to bring people together. God intended for us to live in relationship with him and with each other. The small group provides an opportunity to connect with others and do life together. While participating in small groups, you’ll experience authentic Christian community. You’ll learn together, have fun together, face challenges together, heal together and experience spiritual growth together.

Why are small groups important?

Small groups help us to live life together in Christ-centered, relationships-based fellowship. Participating in a small group encourages spiritual growth and authentic life-giving relationships with one another so we can live out our mission to connect people to Jesus and to one another.

 

What do small groups do?

In your small group, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity. Group life is fun, friendly, supportive, and real. Groups will be based on a variety of styles and types:

  • Bible Study
  • Activities (hiking, biking, cooking, games, crafts, sports, etc.)
  • Interests (science, apologetics, missions, etc.)
  • Types (couples, women, men, families)

 

New groups may be added each semester, so check back often to view new opportunities. In the coming months, you will be able to click here to see what groups are available for the Winter 2020 session.

How often will small groups meet?

There will be three sessions each year lasting two months each. Sessions for 2020 will be:

  • Winter Session 2020: February 1 – March 31
  • Summer Session 2020: June 1 – July 31
  • Fall Session 2020: Sept 1 – Oct 31

Groups will meet weekly for eight weeks. The Small Group Sessions format will allow you to try different small groups throughout the year. Some groups may continue to meet again in the following session. New small group members are always welcome.

Where will small groups meet?

Each small group host will select a location that best fits the purpose of the group. You might meet in a home, at a park, the beach, or even a coffee house or restaurant.

Is childcare available?

Childcare availability will vary from group to group. When you look through the group directory, the profile will indicate if childcare is available.
