Life is better together!

Here at Lakeland, we believe that life is better when you can grow in community with other Christians. Our small groups are more than just weekly bible studies, they're communities who provide love, support, and encouragement as each member takes the next steps in their walk with Christ.

Your Small Group Starts Here

The Gathering is a devoted time and space to gather weekly with people who want to grow deeper in their relationship with others and in their faith. Whether you are new or have been attending Lakeland for a while, The Gathering is an easy first step for anyone looking for community and to get connected in a small group.

For more information or questions contact Nicole Holzbauer.
