Small by design. Community groups consist of 6-14 people who meet together regularly in each other’s homes, building friendships and helping one another grow in their Christian faith.
All are welcome. Adults of any age, marital status, ethnicity and socio-economic background are invited to join a group. We believe a diverse blend of experiences and perspectives is extremely helpful as we learn from and care for each other.
Safe. Community groups are designed to be safe places for people at any stage of their Christian walk. None of us have “arrived.” Our goal is the journey as well as the destination. Group members work hard to establish trust as they share life with each other. They do this by holding things confidential, which leads to open and authentic relationships.
Centered on the God’s Word. Whether our groups are discussing last Sunday’s message, studying Scripture or working through a specific topic, the Bible is always their foundation. God’s Word changes people.
Mission-driven. We want to make much of Jesus together, help each other grow in our faith, and look for ways to share Jesus with people who don’t yet know him.
