Why Community Groups?

Staying connected in Christian community is vitally important to our walk with Jesus. When we are in close relationship with others, we can live out the “one another” commands of scripture. For example, Romans 12:10 “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” and Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.” In Christian community we have those who minister to us and those to whom we minister.

What is a Community Group?

A Community Group is a small group of individuals in our church who gather weekly during our Community Group sessions to grow together in relationship with God, one another, and our neighbors.

How long do they last?

Community Group sessions last eight weeks. We have fall, winter, and spring sessions. At the end of each session, you will have the choice of staying in the same group, trying a new group, or taking a break. Groups do not meet over the summer (mid-June through August). See the sidebar for this year’s schedule.


Fall Session
Sept 19 – Nov 13, 2021

What happens in a Community Group?

Each group will look different depending on who is present and what is happening in their lives, however we believe that hospitality, scripture, prayer, and application are essential for growth in every group.
