Community Groups

Plugging into a Community Group, or Small Group, is one of the best ways to grow as a believer in Christ, no matter how long you’ve been walking in the faith. We need the encouragement that comes from doing life with other believers!

Most of our Community Groups meet in homes and are structured around worship, a Bible-based discussion, sharing and praying for each other. The fellowship time before or after is always fun and usually involves dessert or dinner and plenty of laughter. We love being together! Some of our groups devote themselves primarily to prayer; other groups are Bible or book studies for men or women only.

We also have two that meet monthly just for fun and fellowship—a women’s group centered around crafts and a men’s group that enjoys board games. Hopefully you’ll find just the right group for you. Everyone is welcome!

If you’ve ever thought, “all of this sounds great if only I had the time,” think about this: your schedule may or may not lighten up in the future. But it can feel lighter in the company of friends who listen and pray for you. When we become believers, we are united not only with our Savior, but also with other believers in what is called the body of Christ. Fellowship with other Christians is vital to our own spiritual health and growth!

The new Community Group season begins the week of Sept. 3, although some are already meeting and some are TBA. Contact a leader to find out more about the group and when it begins.
