About Community Groups
Note: for the summer of 2018 community groups are taking a break, but will resume in the fall. However, everyone is welcome to attend soccer and doctrine class.
One of the best ways to live out the identities God has given us as his church is to live life together. Being part of one of these small communities is an opportunity for us to know others on a more personal level, grow together in faith in Jesus, and serve the neighborhoods that we live in. Each week, groups gather throughout the northern Genesee County area to be who we are, where we are, together.
What does a typical community group meeting look like?
A typical community group meeting is a gathering of 8-15 people for about 2 hours. During that time the group enjoys a meal together, shares their highs and lows from the past week, and then the group leader will facilitate deep reflection on the Sunday sermon and the message of that biblical text by asking questions that get to the heart of our suffering and sin. Finally, the group will spend some time in prayer for each other.
Who can attend?
Our groups are open to visitors and non-Christians as well as regular attenders.
Are community groups child-friendly?
Community groups welcome families with children. Each group handles childcare in its own way by either hiring a babysitter, offering free child care, or enjoying the joy and chaos of a group with young kids watching their parents engage in biblical community. Teenagers are encouraged to attend groups with their families.
How do I join a community group?
The best way to join a group is to attend one with a friend. You can also check the CG events page
