Life Groups

LIFE is better when it's lived together!  Everyone deserves a safe place where they can experience "LIFE TOGETHER" with friends.  

In a Life Group, you will meet people at various stages in their Christianity who gather in various places on a semester basis, discussing various topics to develop their relationship with God and others.  Members develop friendships, pray for one another's needs, and find ongoing ways to stay connected through social activities. 

All of us long to be connected:  It's how God created us!  Our groups give you the opportunity to connect with other people just like you who are endeavoring to live life to the fullest for Jesus Christ.  Life Groups let you pursue LIFE TOGETHER in the company of friends.

Our Groups focus on meeting needs in many different areas.  We call them HUBS.  Click on any of our HUBS to see what groups we are offering in our current semester.  They are:

Leader: Matt & Krystal Johnston | Thursdays 7 pm | LC Campus

Overcomers Outreach provides a two-way BRIDGE between traditional 12-step support groups and people within the church. The meetings offer Christ-centered recovery support and fellowship for those whose quality of life has suffered due to problems such as:

  • addiction to drugs and alcohol
  • eating disorders
  • codependency
  • sexual addiction
  • pornography
  • gambling
  • addiction to spending and debt
  • attention deficit disorder

The support group participants, whatever their needs, find the extra care and encouragement necessary to grow beyond the wounds of life's battles, the difficulties in family relationships, the bondage of addictive habits and behaviors, and the isolation caused by shame. Our meetings are filled with the faith, hope, and love only God can provide through Christ.  

As this is an anonymous group, there is no online registration. Call or text for more information:  804-366-6524

Co-Dependent Anonymous (CoDA)
Leader: Melanie Gary | Thursday - 7 pm | Life Church

Many search for ways to overcome the conflicts in our relationships. Many were raised in families where addictions existed.  We have each experienced in our own way the painful trauma that relationships can sometimes bring to our lives. Some have attempted to use others – our mates, friends, and even our children, as our sole source of identity, value, and well-being and as a way of trying to restore within us the emotional losses from our relationships gone bad.  We have all learned to survive life, but we are learning to live life. May you find here a new strength within to be what God intended – Precious and Free. 

As this is an anonymous group, there will be no online registration.  Contact Melanie directly for more information or any questions at 804-347-7364.
