Community GROUPS

FOLLOWING JESUS TOGETHER


If you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus, you need to have intentional relationships with people who have the same goal—and a Community Group is the ideal place for that. In a Community Group, eight to twelve adults who are typically in the same stage of life and geographic area meet regularly for a year or more to pursue authentic community and spiritual growth. In a Community Group you’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you discover in the Bible as you help others to do the same.
