Life Connection Ministry
"When Jesus was going to launch His ministry, He did not
begin by raising an army, raising a budget, starting a university,
building a headquarters or writing a manual. He started by
forming a small group. He recruited a group of unlikely
people to learn together, travel together, live together, eat
together, argue together, suffer together, so that they might be
knit together and one day change the world. His primary
strategy for the extension of His movement was His leadership of a
small group." John Ortberg
In the lobby of South Suburban; on the walls of Levi's House; on
all of our printed materials; prominent on the home page of our web
site are the words "Worship", "Connect", "Serve". We believe
that these sum up our intent to see Life come together through
South Suburban's ministry and mission.
"Connect" is one of the pillars of this three-pronged
Groups provide an avenue that helps move us from being
a church with small groups to a church OF small groups.
We live in a day of great hunger for
relationships/connections/community. Small groups are more
than just Bible studies, though that opportunity is given.
Small groups are more than prayer groups, although they can provide
a "bridge line to the throne room". More than just a time of
fellowship, small groups can serve as a foundation for encountering
God in a safe place, receiving resources for spiritual growth, and
enjoying Life-changing relationships.
