Community groups are groups of 6-10 people who meet together in one another’s homes every other week.
Community groups exist so that members of the group might apply God’s word in the context of community. A community group is a place where God’s word meets
our everyday lives. It is the “lab” so to speak where we seek to apply and obey God’s word.
While each group may be slightly different, each group will spend time getting to know one another through time given for casual conversation as well as structured
group activities. Members will discuss the previous week’s Sunday message and will discuss what God has been teaching them through the weekly spiritual formation guide readings. There will also be time given for prayer requests.
We currently have one community group on Fridays from 6:30pm-8:00pm and one group on Wednesday from 6:00pm-8pm. The Friday group is a family friendly group and members are welcome to bring their children.
We believe that the biggest changes in our lives happen in the context of
relationships. Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Community groups provide us with an opportunity to go beyond “surface level” relationships to build meaningful relationships with one another. Joining a community group means being a part of a team of people who are committed to
growing closer to Jesus together. Your community group is the group of people that you go to battle with, a group of people that you will care for, a group that will
be there for you when you are struggling.
Each September and February an event called Group Connect will be held. This event will be held after Sunday services and will include lunch. At this event, you will learn about what it means to join a community group and have an opportunity to worship and connect with other group members. Attending this event does not mean that you are committed to join a community group. We believe that the deepest life change happens in relationships that are safe and predictable. Therefore the open enrollment period is in either September or February prior to the first group meeting of the season. Once groups begin they will not be open to visitors or new members until the next enrollment period.
