On-Campus Community Groups
- These groups meet on campus on Sundays from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. During this hour, children’s ministries are provided in order to allow parents time to connect with other adults within their groups. Currently, these groups are age-banded according to life stages. We invite you to attend one (or more) of our groups in order to discover which one might fit your needs.
Off-Campus Community Groups
- These groups meet in homes all around Lakeland throughout the week. Off-campus groups are also encouraged to be cross-generational, meaning that the groups are comprised of members from all life stages. The living room environment provides opportunities for close community, accountability, and more time to interact. While childcare is not centrally provided, we encourage group members to take turns working with the children of the group.
