Community & Life Groups

**This summer, we will not meed in our regular community groups, but rather in Community Group Electives.  Please see details below.  Our regular community groups will meet again on August 6th.**

Community Groups are one of the most important components of who we are as a church.  As our adult gatherings on Sunday mornings, these groups are a place to study God’s Word and apply it to life.  They also provide opportunities to grow spiritually through fellowship, prayer, and service.  Community Group involvement is an important step to building significant relationships and connecting with our church family.  Community Groups connect people to God’s word, to each other, and to mission/service opportunities.  They are the primary vehicle for caring for our church family.

Life Groups (formerly known as growth groups) are a small group of people who do life together under the Word.  The purpose of a life group is two-fold: to grow together in God’s Word (Col 3:16) and to care for another from God’s Word (Heb 10:24-25).  Life groups are organized and flow out of community groups, allowing them to be mutually beneficial to one another. Community groups enable us to strategically shepherd our life groups through training and caring, while life groups enable community groups to be intentionally strengthened throughout the week.  Please talk to your Community Group leaders to get plugged into a life group. 

A description of all of our Community Groups available below.  These descriptions are meant to be a guide to help you select a group, but anyone is welcome to visit any groups.
