Life is better when we live it together!
Experience the joy of relationships in Small Groups.
Small Groups are a great way to grow in your relationship with God and with other people who may be in the same stage in life, have similar passions for service, are interested in extended learning opportunities, or some combination of the three!
Find your Small Group at Shepherd of the Lake today!
If you would like to join a small group below or have an idea for a small group you would like to lead, please contact Pastor Laila Barr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
