What we're about

Light Of Life Connection Groups offer pop up small groups (10-12 in size) in different parts of the Twin Cites metro area. These groups meet between 4 and 13 weeks. LOLC Groups were started with the desire to meet other singles on a deeper level and navigate learning to communicate with each other, including the opposite sex. I know, a tall order!

LOLC was founded on the belief that God desires to see his children healed from deep emotional and spiritual wounds to live in his freedom in community with others. LOLC Groups are biblical based small group discussions on a variety of topics, from light hearted to heavy hitters. Our goal is to explore biblical truths and the lies that often trip us up, strengthen and improve relationships both with God and others, open up lines of communication, help in the healing of wounds, and create an environment where true, deep relationship can be explored. Our desire is to create safe places to share our dreams as well as our fears, our joys and our sorrows.

Topics are rated as follows:
Everyone--material covered would benefit both Christian and non Christian, new believers and mature.

Explorer - A good brain workout but I'm not climbing Mount Everest. This group will challenge without exhausting you. This group would be great for a younger believer who is wanting to grow in their faith or non-believers who are wanting to explore what this life is all about.

Excited Learner - Going for it. This group is for those willing to put some extra time and introspection into getting the most out of the series. Be prepared to be challenged and see growth.

Extreme Makeover - Not for the faint of heart. These will challenge you to seek the revelation God is wanting to reveal to you. This could take you on an unexpected journey to freedom. Beware!!!!

Time allotted is between 2 and 2.5 hours weekly depending on topic covered.

The LOLC Groups offer an alcohol free environment. As always, we respect smoke free, vape free homes.

We are primarily singles but married folks are welcome.

All ages are welcome but the general age group is 40's to 60's.

Keep you eyes open for special 1 day events!

Understanding Current Events From a Biblical Perspective

What in the world is going on?? You get to become the Detective as we make the case based on Gods word to the questions about: The Church in America - is the church still teaching sound doctrine? Will God judge America for where it currently stands? What did Christ say would happen right before he returns and are we even close to that time? What does the “Blessed Hope,” really mean? Join us for this one evening class to understand the signs of the times and could we be the generation that is living in the last days? We are requesting a $5.00 donation at the door to be given to the Ranch for space use.

Messy Grace by Caleb Kaltenbach

Big Lake

Description Testimonies of God's love, grace and truth from Christians personally affected by LGBT identity and issues. Very few issues in Christianity are as divisive as the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church. Many Christians lean toward one of two extremes: Sacrificing truth for the sake of grace, or sacrificing grace for the sake of truth. Jesus was able to love all people and yet still hold onto his beliefs. So can you. Even when it’s messy. Messy Grace combines biblical teaching from Caleb Kaltenbach with stirring testimonies from an author with a transgender sister, a college student who lived a double life, a former lesbian hip-hop artist – now married to a man, and a celibate pastor who’s same-sex attracted. This four-episode study will inspire and empower Christ followers to completely love their LGBT neighbors (and any other neighbor) while remaining committed to Scripture. Additional Messy Grace resources available at cityonahillstudio.com. This is a 4 week DVD series. We will be meeting every Tuesday November 5th thru November 26 th. There is a one time class fee of $5.00 to cover administration costs. This is payable on the first night of group. Extreme Makeover - Not for the faint of heart. These will challenge you to seek the revelation God is wanting to reveal to you. This could take you on an unexpected journey to freedom. Beware!!
