To find out more about Community Groups, e-mail the contact person for that group.

WHO? Some groups are gender or age specific. Others center around a shared life stage. They can be mixed across all boundaries, and include new believers or people who aren’t sure about the whole “church-thing” yet!

WHAT? A gathering of 6-10 people who come together for fellowship, study, prayer, reflection, etc. Group meetings usually combine some socializing, Bible study, discussion of practical, real life applications and prayer. The groups are all designed to be a safe environment where you can ask questions, talk about struggles, and truly live out authentic community with one another.

Community Groups are encouraged to be “on mission together as a group” or to be “a group of missionaries” serving, reaching out, and impacting their sphere of influence as representatives of Christ in the world.

WHEN/WHERE? Each group decides what works best for them. They meet in homes, restaurants, coffee shops, at church, etc.

WHY? Though corporate worship is vital, participating in a small group will allow you to experience the purpose and power of Christ in your life, taking your faith to the next level while growing closer to God and others.
