We base our SMALL GROUPS model on the early church as described in the Bible in the book of Acts. In Acts, you can read about how SMALL GROUP meetings in homes helped lay the foundation for tremendous growth in the first church in Jerusalem.

”Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.”

- ACTS 5:42 -

“You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.”

- ACTS 20:20 -

Lighthouse is a church of Small Groups, not a church with Small Groups.


Our hope is for every person to be connected in meaningful community through a Small Group. With so many groups to choose from, we are confident there is a group that is a great fit for you.
