WHAT is the purpose for community groups?
To create small communities that develop relationships safe enough for us to care for one another through Jesus’ grace and truth. If you have not previously joined a community group, this is a good time for you to move into the mainstream of the life of our congregation. New groups are formed periodically throughout the year. Groups focus on nurturing one another as believers, although the style and content will vary by group. Some of the options include: Sermon reflection and application, Bible Studies, Topical Studies, Discussion of Christian books.
WHEN do the community groups meet?
Sunday and Wednesday nights are the primary meeting times for community groups. There are groups that gather on alternative days/nights. Community groups usually meet the first three weeks of the month. On Sundays, groups gather from 5:00 to 6:30 PM and are followed by a church-wide fellowship dinner in Fellowship Hall. On Wednesdays groups typically meet from 6:15–8:00 PM. Community groups usually meet from September through November, and then start back in January through April.
WHERE do the Wednesday community groups meet?
Many groups meet in homes of members who live near the church. Others reserve a room on campus and meet there. Some groups, especially those that have families with small children, elect to meet at the church and have nursery and childcare provided.
