    Community Groups

    “You can’t know everyone, but you need to know someone.” 

    Our relationship with God was meant to be lived in relationship with one another.  Community Groups are designed to help you develop Christian friendship around God’s Word and to receive the kind of encouragement we need to grow in our faith. 

    • What is a Community Group?

    Community Groups are groups of 8 to 14 people

    Community Groups meet weekly and most of them meet in group members' homes 

    • Community Groups are sermon-based groups, discussing questions from the sermon
    • Community Groups provide meaningful friendship and encouragement

    John Thompson writes about his group:

    “I've personally received a benefit from this group far beyond what I thought I might when we first started up last year. There has not been even a single week where I did not come out feeling better and/or more enlightened than when I woke up that particular day. I can't say enough how much I've really appreciated the ideas, thoughts, concerns, and sharing among this group.   Obviously as a group of men, our level of openness and vulnerability is perhaps lacking at times (LOL) but I do think we've been able to build a really good, comfortable atmosphere among the six of us. Knowing we can all feel comfortable sharing struggles and concerns (and joys and praise items too) without fearing it goes outside our group is very comforting to me personally.  We're all in this together and I highly value the relationships we continue to build upon!”

    We would love to help you find a Community Group that works for you. Contact Pastor Mike at and we will connect you with a Community Group.
