A community group consists of 2-14 people that cultivate meaningful relationships as we BELONG through hanging out and enjoying relationships with each other, GROW through studying God’s Word and praying together, and REACHing by serving people where we live work and play. Groups typically get together weekly (or bi-weekly) in homes, restaurants, or even here at the church for 1-2 hours to have a time of fellowship, discussion based on the past Sunday’s sermon or other Biblically based studies, and prayer.
In order to equip all of our groups to connect with each other each week and get into God’s Word, we have subscribed to RightNow Media, kind of a Netflix for Bible study material. We also have a team of people who write discussion questions based off of each Sunday’s sermon.
Each week the questions include the following categories:
BELONG – let’s get the discussion going! Start with open ended “get to know you” type questions.
GROW – what does God’s Word have to say about that? Dig into the Bible and discuss sermon inspired content and related Bible text.
REACH – now, what should I do about it? How am I going to take my knowledge and share it with the community in which we live, work and play.
