We have been designed to do life together. No one is meant to go it alone. This is where Small Groups come in. These groups are where you connect and build a community, a support system. Within Ignite Church at Lakewood we have a variety of small groups. We invite you to connect with a group that fits your life.

Group Leader: Don Eby
Everyone loves a transformation story. Rags to riches. Plain to beautiful. Weak to strong. Esther's story is that, but it is much more. It is a thought-provoking study of God's invisible hand writing silently and unseen across the pages of human history. Perhaps most of all, Esther's story is the account of godly attributes like courage, dignity, wisdom, and strength? attributes that blocked an evil plot, overthrew an arrogant killer, and replaced terror with joy in thousands of Jewish homes. This book can be completed in four weeks and focuses mainly on our listening to and for the Lord, and adhering to his timing.
Beginning May 5
Meets Weekly, Wednesdays at 6 p.m.
Group Leader: Julia Edwards
Family Fun Group
We will be having a time of kid-friendly fellowship, family bonding time, and enjoying each other's company. I have 8 kids of my own, it's hard to find a fellowship time where the whole family can be present. Come with all those sticky fingers, and mom buns. We will have so much fun!
Meets Every Two Weeks, Wednesday Evenings 6 to 7:30
Group Leader: Alisha Rasmussen
