Jesus has designed the church to be a beautiful and practical expression of community. Community is people doing life together, meeting each others’ needs, helping each other grow in faith, and inviting others into the experience of Christ’s Community. Our community groups provide a way for that life together to be experienced through what we call growing together and going together. We are to grow together into the image of Christ and we are to go together proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our Community Groups meet at various locations around the church on Thursday evenings or Sunday afternoon/evenings. Groups have “Hosts” that coordinate the meeting but every member is responsible for participation and spiritual growth.
