LVC Small Groups

Lakeshore Vineyard Small Groups…

We are better together.

SMall Groups


Small Groups are communities where we can meet and enjoy friends, learn together
and grow closer to God. We have groups for women, for men, for men and women, 
and for families with kids. We offer a variety of groups: some groups to study the Bible together, others to offer support to one another, and others to engage in activities together.


Small groups at Lakeshore Vineyard run in 3 cycles per year each consisting of
one month for people to learn about the groups being offered and sign up, 
followed by three months of meeting as as group.
