Small Groups

Ministry Director: Pastor Dan 209.966.7734

"He [Christ] is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." Colossians 1:28 (NIV)

NLCF offers various small group studies to encourage and equip the body in wisdom and health to enable us to grow to full maturity in Christ so that we might live our lives to the fullness that Jesus offers us in abundance!  

We believe that true "community" happens when we spend time together in smaller groups, rather than merely attending Sunday Morning services. Our studies and ministries are open to anyone willing to take that "next step" in their walk with Christ and connecting to the body of believers.  

"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:46 (NIV)

Small groups are the bedrock of community and they are always changing and growing. Don't miss out on the blessing of really getting to know others and walking together in the path of holiness.
