Why life groups?
We believe life groups are an important avenue to help our church family live out our mission and values. Life groups are an opportunity for a small group of people to connect on a deeper level outside of their “Sunday self” as they seek to do life together. As Leclaire grows larger we must also grow smaller at the same time.
As we seek to awaken families to find and follow Jesus (Matthew 28:19), life groups will help our church family. . .
Connect with Jesus’ love and truth
Grow more like Jesus inward and withward
Serve Jesus in your family, church & workplace
Go adventure with Jesus in word and deed
“They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity – all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved.” – Acts 2:46-47
Life Groups Overview
