Here at Lakes Area Vineyard Church we value small groups highly as the primary source of care and connection within the church. Our hope and prayer is that a small group would not just be another weekly commitment to add to your calendar, but that it would be a place where you encounter God in amazing ways through the fellowship of believers. Whether you’re hungry for prayer, scripture, outreach, or simply honest conversation and friendship, we offer a variety of groups with different focuses so that you have options for whatever season of life you’re in.

We have two small group semesters each year. Winter semester runs January through April and Fall Semester runs October through December. A catalog with new small group choices is released each semester and it's loaded with different groups and a wide variety of options for you to choose from.
