What Are Community Groups?
Community Groups consist of 5-20 people who meet in homes or at the church. Most groups meet 3-4 times each month, along with some social events every now and then. Some groups eat meals together while others just do snacks or desert. All groups are full of loving and welcoming people hoping to do life together.
Why Community Groups?
Community Groups are a place to help us become and make disciples who: 1) Connect relationally, 2) Grow spiritually, and 3) Serve intentionally.
1) CONNECT with other believers through authentic, gospel-centered, life-giving community and biblical “one-anothering." (1 Jn. 4:11; Rom. 12:10; 1 Thes. 3:12)
2) GROW towards spiritual maturity in Christ. (Eph. 4:12-16; Col. 1:28)
3) SERVE by intentionally using the gifts and resources God’s given you to know, love and serve your neighbor in Jesus name where you live, work, learn and play. (Matt. 5:16; Gal. 5:14; 6:10; Col. 4:5-6; 1 Pet. 4:10-11)
In other words, Community Groups are not simply Bible studies or a fellowship groups. Through these small groups we hope all will experience the type of Biblical community you can't on a Sunday morning, connecting to life-giving relationships with other believers helping us grow spiritually and serve others.
