Frequently Asked Questions

What is a LifeGroup?

LifeGroups are groups of 8-12 people who meet weekly for a few months to grow in their faith, try a new activity, have fun, and be in community. With groups for men, women, young adults, and more, there is definitely a group where you belong. While Bible Study is the focus of our groups, some groups do an activity like biking, some groups read a book together, and all groups encourage you in your day-to-day walk with Christ!

Why sign up for a LifeGroup?

Smaller groups of people coming together around Jesus Christ can be an amazing thing. You can meet new people. You can see things in the Bible you might not find on your own. You will be encouraged. You can see God work through you in the lives of other people! Besides, groups can just be a really fun experience.

Why do I have to register?

Group size is limited to 12 people out of respect for our host homes space and to encourage people to get to know others in a smaller group setting. When a group reaches 12 sign-ups it will be marked full. Warning: some groups will fill up fast!

What happens after I sign up?

You’ll receive an email from your awesome leader with more information on your group.

What about my kids?

Some of our LifeGroups will have room for childcare on-site. The LifeGroup menu will indicate if childcare is provided.

How long will my group last?

Semesters are usually 8-10 weeks long.  Look for new semesters to begin in September (Fall), or February (Winter).  Sign-ups open in August and January.

LifeGroup Hosts

Almost anyone can host a group. We try to have groups in convenient locations. Just let us know.

LifeGroup Leaders

Leaders must be in Partnership with Lakeside. Leaders must work for a semester with an established leader and attend a LifeGroup orientation. They must be daily followers of Jesus Christ, love people, and be committed to carrying out the vision of Lakeside through the group.
