LifeGroups are small groups of eight to 12 people who gather regularly in the members’ homes to connect relationally and grow spiritually by participating in a discussion-led Bible study. Groups are encouraged to gather weekly for this time of study and fellowship. Each group is encouraged to commit to one another for a set period of time. After an initial commitment of four weeks, the school year is a good guideline for a minimal commitment.

LifeGroups at OSL began in 2016 based on a round of weekly sermon series. You’ll find archives of that series below.

LifeGroups has resumed for fall 2017 with an initial emphasis on a three-week sermon series based on key themes from the movie The Shack. Click the buttons below to learn more about LifeGroups and The Shack!

LifeGroups: The Beginnings – Fall 2016

A component of the LifeGroups ministry is OSL’s new sermon series, part of a redesigned worship experience at the 11:00 a.m. Celebrate worship service. which launched on September 11, 2016. The service features a three- to four-week preaching series, opportunities for interaction with fellow worshipers, drama and multimedia presentations, and more. The sermon series provides discussion material for LifeGroups members to consider.

Here are study guides for the third series, “Rejoice in the Lord!” with Pr. Tim Lemme, as well as video recordings of the sermons. The earlier series—“God’s Not Dead,” with Pr. Randy Gehring, and “Peace in Troubled Times,” with Pr. Jared Rakness—appear further below.
