At Lakewood, our greatest desire is to see you connect with others and grow spiritually. We believe you grow to be like Christ as you do life with other people. In addition, we are convinced sustained life-change happens best in the context of a small group.



Join a Sunday Morning Group at Lakewood at 8:15, 9:30, or 11:00.

Sunday Morning Groups

On Sunday mornings, we have groups meeting at Lakewood at 8:15am, 9:30am and 11am. Most of these groups are co-ed, range from 10-40 people and are typically based on age, stage or study topic. We do offer some any age and stage adult classes on Sundays as well. Find a group that you can be a part of on Sunday Mornings!

It’s a New Day for Financial Freedom | REGISTER

Grief Share | REGISTER

Join Ed Jump in room 108 for a 13-week Grief Share support group where you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief.

Accountability Groups

These gender-specific groups for 3-6 people meet weekly off campus to encourage each other through accountability, grow together through God’s word, cover each other in prayer, and impact others for Christ. New groups are always forming. Fill out the Community Connection Form below and we will find an accountability group that’s a good fit for you!
