House Groups

House Groups are parishioners from Light of Christ who gather together to get to know each other better, encourage each other in the faith and set aside space and time to allow the Word of God to shape their souls. House groups generally meet every other week and are always open to new members.

Fall 2016 Groups

Joy’s Purpose House Group helps us connect with others at Light of Christ and to encourage all to grow in our relationship with God. At each meeting, we will share some food, learn a little bit about each other, and discuss God’s word in reference to either the Sunday readings or scriptural topics of interest. Newcomers are always welcome; the group meets at Murray Olsen’s home. Contact Kathy or Lance Laybourn for more information.

Kenosha West House Group meets every other Wednesday at 9243 42nd Ave in Pleasant Prairie.  Each evening starts with a potluck meal from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. After that, the group divides into two smaller groups:

Kenosha West – Book Group: Led by Karen Cassiday, this group is reading Matthew Heard’s Life with a Capital L.

Kenosha West – Prayer Group: Led by Lisa Traylor, this group does a short teaching on prayer and then prays for Light of Christ and Kenosha.
