Light Of Life Connection Groups offer pop up small groups (10-12 in size) in different parts of the Twin Cites metro area. These groups meet between 4 and 13 weeks. LOLC Groups were started with the desire to meet other singles on a deeper level and navigate learning to communicate with each other, including the opposite sex. I know, a tall order!
LOLC was founded on the belief that God desires to see his children healed from deep emotional and spiritual wounds to live in his freedom in community with others. LOLC Groups are biblical based small group discussions on a variety of topics, from light hearted to heavy hitters. Our goal is to explore biblical truths and the lies that often trip us up, strengthen and improve relationships both with God and others, open up lines of communication, help in the healing of wounds, and create an environment where true, deep relationship can be explored. Our desire is to create safe places to share our dreams as well as our fears, our joys and our sorrows.
"I have been very blessed with the ministry of the small groups in many ways and my involvement is preparing me for healthy and stable future relationships. The small groups are based on Biblical, Christian values and that is important to me.
First, I have learned about the different ways men and women think. Learning about these differences has helped me become more sensitive to men and better understand them.
Next, I have learned what a godly relationship looks like and what to look for as I seek a godly man as a mate. I want to look for someone that can further the Kingdom of God with me.
Lastly, I have learned how to prepare for a future relationship that is healthy, lifelong, and centered on Christ.
I'm excited to continue learning more in the small groups in the upcoming year in order to help me become the person God intended me to be! " Debbie
"Being a single father of a teen daughter who is struggling with an issue of gender identity called gender dysphoria, attending the Messy Grace group study has given me new insight into an issue that has become much more pronounced than when I was growing up. The information and testimonies of individuals interviewed has given me an ability to see things from a different perspective and is helping me in my endeavor to be present for my daughter without being in violation of my Christian faith and beliefs."

Light of Life Ministries is proud to connect with other ministries to offer hope and healing on this journey called life! Here are just a few!
Our purpose is to lovingly expose and confront the hindrances that prevent a healthy intimate relationship with God and others. We offer prayer ministry, small groups and resources to help you on your journey.
Prayer Ministry is for individuals, couples and youth to uncover and identify the hindrances in relationships. These confidential sessions consist of an hour and a half with one or two prayer ministers. There is a suggested donation for this ministry, however ministry is not dependent on ability to donate. Contact Pastor Emily to schedule a session.
New life Church has a staff of trained and gifted prayer ministers who minister by Biblical principles under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They minister to individuals, couples, families and sometimes children. This ministry is facilitated by Dan and Julie Dustin.
Transformation Ministry is a ministry of New Life Church that endeavors to assist its members in appropriating the cross in our lives to live out the reality of our sanctified position in Christ. The Mission Statement of New Life Church is: “Becoming Ambassadors for Christ through intimacy with God and the healing, transforming power of the Holy Spirit.”
We recognize that the Holy Spirit is the key to bringing transformation to our hearts. We employ a variety of tools to help people along this path of transformation. The most important tool we employ is to encourage people to develop a deep, intimate relationship with God. We encourage this through personal mentoring, encouraging and teaching people to read their Bible, to pray, to hear God’s voice and follow the direction of the Holy Spirit. When a Christian has a trusting, intimate relationship with God, they will hopefully listen to the Holy Spirit when He challenges them to deal with sinful attitudes of their hearts and aspects of their lives. This is our first and foremost push with Christians. It is fundamental for Christians to be in their word, to love God, pray and hear His voice and direction in their lives. Transformation Ministry provides personal prayer ministry utilizing forgiveness and repentance to break patterns of sin in our lives and bring transformation.
