One of the best things about being plugged in and a part of your local church family is you don’t have to walk through anything alone! Community groups meet regularly throughout the year, and are the perfect way to take personal growth and relationship building beyond Sunday gatherings. From fitness or message-based, outreach or book study, single or married – there is a group perfect for you and your stage of life.
Before you search the Groups Finder, here are some simple steps to help you get started.
DO YOU WANT TO LEAD A COMMUNITY GROUP?
Community Group leaders are responsible for providing their groups with vision, direction, and support. Leaders are successful when they are personally growing in their intimacy with God, and in community with other believers. Leaders exist to encourage the group members’ growth in these two areas as well. Community Group leaders are supported by a Hub Leader who is there for prayer, advice, and encouragement during the semester.
