Life Groups are intended to create deeper, more intimate, relationships that directly point toward restoration through Jesus Christ. They are centered on the Word of God and the Body of Christ with a purpose of moving those in the body from a number in a chair to being known by the church.


A Life Group is the place for those wanting a more intimate relationship with others in the church body. These groups will provide opportunity for community, conversation, and a deeper understanding of the Word of God. They are set up to meet you exactly where you are. So come as you are, and be prepared to see God move you from a number in a seat, to being known by the body of Christ.


Jesus commanded us to love one another as He loves us (John 15:12). LCC Life Groups are intended to be one way in which we can exercise that love for each other. Jesus loves us with a committed love. Therefore, commitment to each other in our Life Groups is also very important; Life Group are encouraged to meet regularly enough where true friendships, trust, and Christ’s love is experienced as people “live life” together. The frequency of each group meeting may vary from group to group. There are groups meeting once per month, every other week, and weekly.


Some groups meet on a trimester calendar beginning each January, May, and September (common among the college-aged young adults); other groups meet year round, sometimes weekly or monthly. Newly formed groups are encouraged to meet more frequently because people are still getting to know one another. Meeting times are purposely discouraged from meeting Wednesday nights and Sunday Mornings since all are encouraged to join together for The Journey service and Sunday services. Regardless the meeting frequency, the goal is to meet often enough to allow the Holy Spirit to work through His sons and daughters to change lives for His glory.

The most common place for Life Groups to meet are in someone’s private residence, but this also means that the size of each group is limited by available space, or parking. The LCC Life Group ministry is based upon the belief that God will provide the needed space by placing the desire upon the hearts of His people. If you believe God is asking you to provide your home for this ministry, won’t you please respond and speak to us at the First Impressions counter at church?

A typical Life Group will meet for 1-2 hours depending on the topic, focus, and discussion of the group. Groups may meet only for a season or extend year round depending on the desires of the particular Life Group.

The majority of the groups may be given weekly discussion topics that are based on the weekly Sunday Morning sermons. These questions may be obtained upon request from our First Impressions counter at church. Other groups may decide to study and particular book of the bible.

There is no cost to participate. However individuals within a grouip may decide to share in the cost of refreshments, or join in potlucks etc. From time to time there may be a cost for special focused groups with specific curriculum (i.e. Marriage, Financial Guidance, New Believers, etc.). If so, this will be communicated well ahead of time.

LCC Life Groups are purposed to help develop community within the adults at LCC Redding. Although some small groups may have the ability to provide limited childcare, generally most parents will need to make arrangements for their own childcare. In most cases, you should plan on an adults-only meeting.

Signing up online is the best way to get plugged into a Life Group. However, registration for LCC Life Groups is on a first come-first serve basis. So once a group is full, it will be closed until the host venue can accommodate more people. Registration is available on the LCC Registration page on the church website.
Another thing to consider is, many times God will prompt us to step out as leaders, and if that is you, please prayerfully consider God’s calling on your life. If you want to know more about becoming a Life Group leader, please come to the First Impressions counter at the church and find out more.

Signing up online is the best way to get plugged in to a specific group. Registration for LCC Life Groups is on a first come first serve basis. So once a group is full, it will be closed for that season. You can find LCC Life Group registrations available prior to the start of each life group season, we will keep registration open for 3 weeks into the beginning of each season. Registration is available on the LCC Registration page on the website.

We desire to have a variety of groups each season representing the different seasons of life we all find ourselves in (i.e. Young Married, Young Adult, Men, Women, Over 60, etc.) Although this is our desire, it is largely dependent upon men and woman stepping up to lead these groups. If you are looking for a specific age or season of life group please check our registration page at the beginning of each season to see what is available.

If you are interested in leading a group or making your home available to host a group please fill out this form.
