Join A Life Group

Connect, build relationships & grow together

Grow Together

Build strong relationships and find where you belong in the body of Christ.

If you want to learn more about God and/or get connected in the church, Growth Track, Family Groups, and Semester Groups will help you discover your God-given purpose and help you grow in your relationship with Him while connecting with others. We believe when people participate in ministry, exciting things happen, and that’s why we invite you and your family to connect with us at Life Community Church!

Growth Track

When it comes to getting involved with the exciting things happening at Life Community Church, the best place to start is Growth Track! This 4-week experience will teach you how to Know God, Get Connected, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference. Growth Track takes place on Sunday nights.


Starts September 16 (Childcare provided)

Family Groups

It is our desire at LCC that everyone feels like and is family. Family Dinner Groups meet in homes all across the area to do life together, laughing and growing in every season we find ourselves in. We encourage you to join a group so you can form relationships, build friendships, and strengthen each other in your walk with Christ.

YOU MAKE ME CRAZY – C0-ED, Wednesday, 6:30p, @ Life Community Church

This study from Rick Warren will help bring sanity to your relationships so you can do more than just coexist.

PRAYER THAT GETS RESULTS – CO-ED, Wednesday, 6:30pm @ Life Community Church

Prayer is an aggressive act in the face of impossibility that may be performed by anyone willing to learn how to pray. Learning how to pray effectively is one of the most important things a believer can ever do in their Christian walk. A believer cannot be successful in fulfilling God’s purpose in their life if they do not know how to pray according to biblical principles.

THIS I KNOW – WOMEN, Wednesday, 6:30pm, @ Life Community Church

Imagine facing your future and feeling nothing but peace. That’s the difference between knowing God with heart knowledge instead of just head knowledge. Fear about the future, anxiety, and worry win because we don’t really know who God is. Sure, we know in our heads, but deep down in the secret places (where worry makes its home) a small part of us still wonders if God really cares about us, if he really knows what He’s doing, and if He can actually be trusted.

QUEST – WOMEN, Wednesday, 6:30pm @ Life Community Church

In this study Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him.

THE LETTERS OF JOHN – CO-ED, Wednesday, 6:30pm, @ Life Community Church

In his letters, John expresses delight at believers who are “walking in the truth.” This Life Group helps us become believers who are “walking in the truth” in our own day–people in whom the very life of God is at work for all to see.

MANHOOD – MEN, Wednesday, 6:30pm, @ Life Community Church

The earthly crisis within manhood will be there until Jesus returns, but in Christ, men are pointed toward the gospel as the vision for renewal. Manhood Restored, by exciting new pastoral voice, Eric Mason, combines theological depth with practical insights, putting men in step with a gospel-centered manhood that will enrich every facet of their lives.

BREATHE – WOMEN, Multiple Times & Locations

Ladies, this Life Group is offered on Wednesday morning at 8:30am at LCC Wednesday evening at 6:30pm at The Abbey, and Thursday evenings at Amanda Wetzler’s house at 6:30pm.

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

BREAK FREE – MEN & WOMEN, Tuesday, 6:30pm, @ Life Community Church

Have a bad habit that you’d like to break? Let’s break free!
It’s more than addiction. It is anything you place on the throne of your heart, in place of God. We all have battles daily, and this study will help you break free from whatever is holding you back from experiencing the fullness of God’s love.

COFFEE TALK – WOMEN, Saturday, 10am, @ McDonalds in Columbia

Enjoy some coffee & breakfast at McDonald’s as we discusses God, Life and what God has to do with Life.

SERMON IN REVIEW – MEN, Tuesdays, 6am @ Life Community Church

Weekly at Life Community Church on Tuesday morning from 6-8am, we gather as men to read, discuss and apply the scriptures that were presented during the previous weekend services.


If you enjoy nature and want to walk through God’s handy-work in a local park, we would love for you to join us. Meeting monthly on Saturday mornings, we will meet at a near-by  state or federal park to hike and have devotions and a time of prayer together.
