“And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts.” – Acts 2:46
Because being the church, building friendships and growing in your faith is not something that can happen on a Sunday alone, we encourage everyone to be in relationship with others midweek.
Which means join a group!
Community Groups (Longer commitment // life on life // all year community)
The primary way we do community life on life is in Community Groups. They are groups that seek to do life the way a family would, wanting to be involved in each others lives, caring for the practical needs of each others, praying together and unpacking what it means to live as followers of Jesus in the everyday stuff of life
FOCUS: Each Community Group has different ways they organize life together. However each group has a specific night of the week they gather to further unpack the message from Sunday, discussing questions that emphasize what difference the passage/sermon makes in their lives.
Study Groups (Shorter // life on life // 6-10 week seasonal commitment )
We understand that not everyone can join a year round group depending on your season of life, and that’s okay! Study Groups are a great place to build friendships meet new people and find a place of belonging. They are shorter groups that meet with specific focuses on learning different aspects of knowing, loving, and living for Jesus. This Fall we have two Study Groups, Women’s Bible Studies and Mature Manhood
