Find a group & journey together

You were not created to live a solitary existence, but to enjoy meaningful community with God and with others. We invite you to find a place to plug in and move forward in your faith journey.

Life Groups

Life Groups are gatherings of 5-15 people who meet regularly to share their faith journey. Groups are formed around shared context such as life stage, family situation, or service activity. There’s something for everyone!

Family Connection
Leader: Ross Morley

Fridays twice a month (dates vary to suit schedule) at a home in Klahanie
6:00pm - 8:30pm
We're a group of families that meet in a home on the Plateau to chat over a casual dinner, do a Bible based study, and pray for each other. Our purpose is deeper connection and spiritual growth within the larger family of PLCC. During the study and prayer time, the kids play games together in another room. Most of our kids are in middle & high school, but there are some younger ones too.

The group is always open to new people. It is a great way to build deep connections and lasting friendships within the church. We have done a variety of topics ranging from Bible book studies through DVD series on various topics - the study is not the main point, but provides a focus to help us grow and bond spiritually.
Currently we are working through Daniel using a study guide by Dr. Warren Wiersbe.
