Fellowship with One Another

When you share your life with a community of fellow believers, we call that “fellowship.” St. John writes, “We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3). When believers are united to God, they are inevitably united to one another also. 

This is necessary. God did not design human beings to face life on their own. Instead, he intended for believers to be woven together in a community so that they might encourage one another as together they walk the often difficult path of life. Consider these words of direction from the Scripture, intended for all Christians. 

  • Be devoted to one another in love. – Romans 12:10
  • Encourage one another and build each other up. – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
  • Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. – Hebrews 10:24
  • Offer hospitality to one another. – 1 Peter 4:9

Purpose of Life Groups

Life Groups are one of the ways that Lamb of God carries out those Biblical directives. In summary, the purpose of Lamb of God’s Life Groups is to enable Christians to share their lives, knitting them together as a family, for mutual encouragement and strengthening.

Life Groups are a vital part of our ministry at Lamb of God. We are more than a friendly church; we are a church of friends. Life Groups can be where those friendships are made and nurtured. 


There are three sessions each year:Winter/Spring, Summer, and Fall. When you join a Life Group, you are committing for approximately three months. Life Groups may carry over from season to season, or something entirely new and exciting may show up in a new season! It's up to you what you'd like to participate in each season.
