What are Community Groups?
Community Groups are small groups of six to twelve people that meet weekly in someone's home. They are for adults (18 and older). One of the best things about Community Groups are the friendships you'll make. They can encourage, support and challenge you. Community groups meet this need by providing a time and place to learn about God, build each other up, and have a lot of fun at the same time.
Community Groups can range from weekly home bible studies to quarterly social events and everything in between. Our goal is to create authentic relationships that connect you to God.
We encourage our community groups to take on a service project and some of them need your help. Click here to see a list of ways that you can help them serve our communities.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE COMMUNITY GROUPS?
Community Groups are regular gatherings (usually on a weeknight) designed to connect you with others.
Community Groups are an integral part of what we do. Sunday services are merely a snapshot of the many different people that attend our church. We believe that spending time in community with each other will strengthen our relationship with God AND inspire a love for others. This isn't accomplished by sitting in rows on a Sunday, it's accomplished by gathering in circles with each other. That's why we say circles are better than rows.
IS CHILDCARE PROVIDED FOR ANY GROUPS?
Yes. Sort of. It depends on the Community Group and the particular situation of the individual. For example, we provide childcare for MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) because it is a group that specifically focuses on mother's with young children.
If you have kids and that's the one thing from holding you back from attending a Community Group, we want to help. For more details on how we would like to help, contact us at email@example.com.
HOW OFTEN DO COMMUNITY GROUPS MEET?
