You were not created to do life alone
The Church offers you Christ and Community and we need both to be able to grow spiritually and take our next steps in following Him. This is why Live Oak is a church of groups: Small Groups, Specialized Groups and Bible Study Classes.
Our small groups meet at various times during the week, most meeting in homes. We have men's groups, women's groups, mixed and married groups, groups for college-aged people, groups for young adults. Groups will come together to learn together, pray together and share life. Some will study a book of the Bible. Some will discuss the Sunday message together. While others will do video-based studies.
We also have "specialized groups," and Bible Study Groups (which you can learn more about by scrolling down). What makes these different than a small group is several factors. While small groups are usually composed of under 15-18 people, specialized groups and Bible Studies may be a bit larger. They may be very content specific, such as Financial Peace University or re|engage, or demographic specific (for college-age, for men).
Regardless of the group type, they meet September through November, taking a break for the holidays. Then resume in early February and meet through May, taking the summer months off. We have found that group attendance wanes every summer, due to vacations and such, so we take the summer months off from structured weekly meetings.

Small Group Childcare
We understand that in order for many to participate in a small group, quality, accessible options for childcare are necessary. Live Oak Community Church offers 2 options for you. We provide on-site childcare for a nominal fee for groups who meet on Sunday evenings and for our Wednesday morning Sisters and Seekers groups. For groups meeting at all other time, we do a childcare reimbursement plan, where you hire your sitter and we help you with that cost. LEARN MORE ABOUT BOTH OPTIONS HERE
