Part of our mission is for members of the community to be known, loved and cared for, which is why we provide a variety of groups, to cultivate both a relationship with God and others. These groups provide sanctuary from the pressures and anxieties of life in the city and facilitate the formation of new friendships. CGs are places where we can be revitalized and strengthened. As God made us for community, we need others to help apply the gospel to our lives. We have additional groups that allow for people to gather outside of CGs that are based on neighborhood, shared interests or hobbies, and life stage.

Linq Groups

Linq Groups provide a way for you to connect over shared interests, hobbies and skills and invite friends — perhaps those who don’t have a church community — to join!

We currently have four groups: Running Club, Book Club, Arts & Culture Group, and Artist Collective.

Check out our calendar to learn when these groups meet next!

Tuesday Morning Men

All men are welcome to join us on Tuesday mornings at 7 a.m. each week at the W83 Ministry Center for coffee, bagels, fellowship and prayer. Our meetings are informal, and no preparation is required.

For more information contact Scott Carpenter at [email protected].



If you have a question that’s not addressed here, please contact us.

CGs are meant to be smaller communities than a normal Sunday morning service, and thus, provide a warm space to get to know new and old friends alike, and to be known and cared for as you experience life in the city.

CGs are the heartbeat and backbone of community formation at LSQ, so we highly recommend joining one. Additional groups listed provide supplemental times of socialization and experiencing life together based on shared interests and life stage. For CGs, regular attendance is important and beneficial, so try to find a group that is convenient for you in regards to time and location. If you need further guidance, contact [email protected].

Yes, we understand that you may want to visit more than one group before deciding on the best one for you. We do recommend that you visit a group more than once before making a decision.

Please email [email protected]. While our leaders do their best to contact you in a timely manner, things happen. If you have not heard back after a week, we will be happy to help contact the leader for you.

While you are free to join any CG that is convenient for you, we highly recommend joining a CG that is affiliated with your church. Instead of seeing the members of your group just once a week at CG, you will see them again at church, making a large church feel smaller.

Thank you for being interested in leading or hosting! Feel free to review this information, and email [email protected] with any questions.
