Small Groups

There are a number of small groups that have formed around Lakeview Presbyterian, as a way for our members to become more connected with each other around a common interest.  We encourage you to take a look at some of the offerings and see where you fit in!  For more information on ways you can get involved, please contact the church office.

Taize Small Group:

On Monday nights (6:30-7:30PM), a NEW small group will convene for a time of prayer, meditation, fellowship, and spiritual renewal at the home of long-time Lakeview member (and contemplative prayer guru), Andy Kates!  This group is open to ANY/ALL who wish to participate and will remain a very casual, “come-as-you-are” type of gathering.  The group plans to utilize elements of Taize worship and song, incorporate brief periods of silent prayer and meditation, and is very much looking forward to fostering this time of meaningful fellowship and discussion, spiritual growth, and laughter together. Please contact Barrett Milner for the address.

Men’s Book Club:

Men from our church, as well as a few others, gather monthly to discuss books ranging from literary classics, to mindless entertainment and from the fictional fantasies to biographical masterpieces.  The discussions are thought-provoking and entertaining, and the company is warm and welcoming.

Women’s Book Club:

Several women at Lakeview Presbyterian join together once a month for a lively discussion of the book read the previous month.  The group gathers at a member’s house for dinner (which is often centered on the theme of the book) from about 7:00-9:00.

What is your Life’s Legacy?:

An energized group of LPC members are engaged in a project facilitated by Life Coach Carol Fleischman and assisted by Sue Burge.  The project is funded by a small discretionary grant from Baptist Community Ministries and addresses the needs of people experiencing major changes in the second half of life.  Participants recall their memories and identify their personal contributions and attributes in 7-year Cycles of Life.  They will share their life stories with each other and then be coached in formulating their life purpose statements.  These activities form the foundation for each person to then Write the next story that tells their vision for the future.  The group will also identify a service project to give back to the community.

Dinner with Friends:

Once a month, a restaurant is selected, names are added to a list, and a great time is had by all in attendance.  Please join us for a great way to taste some of our city’s greatest restaurants, surrounded by some wonderful company.

Signup on the Church bulletin board, where our monthly restaurant selection is posted!
