Connecting to Jesus through COMMUNITY with one another.
Affinity-based, relationship focused
In Connect groups, people gather to participate in a shared interest, hobby, or life stage. In a large church, it can sometimes be difficult to identify those who share commonalities. These groups are devoted to growing in hospitality, that is, welcoming people into our lives by sharing something together that we all enjoy.
Study-based, learning focused
In Content groups, people gather to learn and study a topic together. Group Leaders will identify a resource of interest (book, video, online course, Scripture) and invite others to engage and discuss it together. These groups are devoted to growing in wisdom and knowledge, that is, learning how to live life according to God’s ways and teaching.
Serving-based, context focused
City groups are where people gather to learn about and serve a local community. These groups are devoted to growing in prayer, cultural humility and contextual learning. They seek to join God in the work he’s doing as he restores beauty and makes things new. These groups may serve through another community organization or ministry.
Need-based, healing focused
Care groups are where people gather to find support and resources for healing in an intentional and safe place. These groups are devoted to growing in empathy and vulnerability, receiving love and giving it without the threat of shame or rejection.
Discipleship-based, spiritual maturity focused
In Core groups, one person invites a few others to follow Jesus together: to be with Jesus, to become like him, and to do what he did. These groups are devoted to growing together in maturity in Jesus through hospitality, accountability, apostolic teaching, fellowship, and prayer. They require a high level of commitment.
