Loxley Groups

Summer Semester 2019
May-August

Loxley Groups have one purpose:

To Bring People Together

We believe God created us to live in relationship with others. Only then can we love, lead and live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, because life is simply better together.

Read through our group offerings for the week, then make sure you sign up for your group below! Just provide your name, number, email and which group you will be attending. We’ll take care of the rest! We can’t wait to see how these groups effect real change in your life!

DESCRIPTION: Sometimes the challenges of life threaten to overwhelm us. We wonder how we’ll carry on after the day the bottom dropped out. For you, it may have been the day of a financial crisis, a bad diagnosis, an accident, or you were served divorce papers by your spouse. Whatever it was, you knew your life was going to change dramatically, and it didn’t seem like it was for the better.
In You’ll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times, Max Lucado encourages readers through sharing the Biblical story of Joseph. Stripped of his identity, thrown into a pit and sold as a slave, his was a story of defeat and challenges, but as time passed God worked through his circumstances to bring redemption and reconciliation. And although it may seem hard to believe, you will get through this too.
The story of Joseph’s life didn’t end in the pit and neither does yours.
