Living into God's story
The church is a group of people gathered together by God to participate in his community together.
We often say, you are not really in the church unless you are in a community group. Some people get offended by that, but it is true. The Bible says we are to love each other, pray for each other, encourage each other, and sometimes even to reprove one another. How can you do that if you are not in face-to-face relationships? So we are always telling people to visit a couple of groups, find one that “fits” you, and then commit to it. This applies to you whether you are here for three months or three years.
As a Church we are intentionally living into God's Story and believe transformation takes place as we journey together. Community groups provide a place of connection. Groups of 6-12 people provide a place to build relationships, study Scripture, and serve one another and the city.
Below is a list of current groups. Please get in touch to find out more or join a group. Groups are co-ed unless otherwise indicated.
