God wired us to be in community. Then He called us to His church so we could connect with Him and others in meaningful ways!
If you’re new to Seymour Lake, one of the best ways to get acquainted is to join a Connect Group. They’re a great way to unite with people who are traveling through the same stage of life as you, or to get connected to those with whom you share a common interest. And although you don’t have to commit to participating for a lifetime, you could even come away with some lifelong friends! Our current offerings are shown below. Just check on the box of the one that appeals to you and the group leader will contact you to answer any questions you might have.
Daughter’s of Encouragement (a.k.a. The D.O.E Group)
Meets weekly on Thursdays @ 11 a.m.
Originally this women’ group was drawn together by their compassionate hearts and their shared desire to provide comfort and care to those who are struggling. Over the years, they have brought hope to the hurting, by sharing simple words of encouragement to all those God has place into their path, both inside and outside this church.
Each week they devote time to fellowship, prayer, study and serving others. If your gift is encouraging others, they’d love to have you join them!
Fridays with Friends
Meets twice monthly on Friday @ 12:30 p.m.
Who doesn’t love connecting with friends to share lunch and discuss a good movie? With a few exceptions, this group meets on the first and third Fridays of each month. To receive an email update about their luncheon plans and movie selections twice each month, sign up below and plan to attend whenever you can.
Made by the Master
Meets monthly on the first and third Tuesday @ 7 p.m.
Drawn together initially by their shared experience of becoming “empty nesters,” this group is growing in their faith as they seek together to discern God’s new direction for their lives. Each week they encourage each other’s spiritual growth by sharing a devotional and praying for one another. Sometimes they share their struggles too, but they always seem to share a laugh as well and occasionally they will throw in a game, just for the pure joy of having fun with their friends. If you’re looking to reinvent yourself and need help to find your purpose, they would love to welcome you into the group.
Men’s Monthly Breakfast Group
Meets on the 1st Saturday @ 9 a.m.
This Connect Group generally meets for food and fellowship on the first Saturday of each month, although occasionally that date may need to change. Over the years, they have also taken group excursions together, to see baseball, basketball, and hockey games among other things. So if you’re a man who is new to our church and who is looking to get acquainted with the other men at Seymour Lake, this group is for you! Click on the button below if you would like to become a part of this group and if the date ever needs to change, we’ll notify you by in advance by email.
Young Adults Group
Meets weekly on Thursdays @ 6:30 p.m.
This group was formed by gathering a few young adults from various faith communities together, who share a common interest in connecting to Jesus, growing in faith together, and reaching out to serve. They begin each week by sharing dinner and socializing first and afterward they devote time to praying, studying God’s word, and serving others.
