Watch an introduction to Community Groups in the Video below:
What is a Community Group?
A Community Group is a home fellowship made up of 8-20 people who meet weekly to fellowship, study the Bible and encourage one another. Each group tries to have shared leadership has one key group leader and one or more other leaders to support the group's mission. An average meeting lasts for an hour and a half, and there’s almost always food involved.
How Important Are Community Groups?
Other than our Sunday Gathering, Community Group meetings are the most important thing we do. Why? Because our mission is to make disciples of Jesus and a key part of discipleship is fellowship and community with other believers.In Acts 2 after the church thousands are saved in a day, immediately the believers begin meeting in homes regularly: And day by day...breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God.... And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved (Acts 2:46-47, ESV). We see community groups as one important way to fulfill this pattern in Scripture.
