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, Community Group, or Accountability Group.
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!
Community Groups are small groups of 6-12 people that join together weekly for intentional, purposeful Bible study focused on life change and spiritual transformation. Through Community Groups we seek a common purpose of deepening our relationship with God and creating authentic community with other believers. Find a group that’s a good fit for you!
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. Use the contact button below if you are interested in being a part of an Accountability Group.

Often, grieving the loss of a loved one continues for some time after the funeral itself. In GriefShare, we hope to provide a listening ear and loving community as you find a “new normal.”
