What kind of place is a Community Group?
A Community Group consists of 8-12 people who gather together to live out their Christianity in community. Community Groups are all about genuine relationships focused on prayer, looking into scripture, accountability, caring and engaging in service. Community Groups go deeper into the Sermon by using the weekly Truth Discussion questions.
Why should I join a Community Group?
In community groups, we develop genuine relationships with other Christians in a way that doesn’t normally happen by simply attending a Sunday service. Community Groups provide a smaller, more relational setting where people can experience the loving community and genuine fellowship we all need.
When do Community Groups meet?
Our groups meet throughout the week, and there is likely one that fits your schedule. They usually meet at least twice a month for regular meetings, as well as other times for service projects or just to hang out.
What does it mean to be in a Community Group?
We ask everyone who joins a Community Group to commit to 3 core principles:
- Faithfulness - commitment to faithfully attend gatherings
- Confidentiality - a promise that things shared in the group stay in the group
- Participation - an effort to participate in the study, prayer and ministry times
