Preparing and Deploying Dependent Disciples
The early church didn’t have big worship areas or a place for a large congregation to meet. Nor did they have professionally trained staff to teach them. What they did have were homes of believers to meet in small groups to share life, learn scripture and pray. (Romans 16:3-16). Our hope and desire is to grow disciples the same way, through small, intimate groups of people sharing life, applying biblical truths to everyday living and praying together. We call those small gatherings Community Groups.
Community Groups are designed to help each of us disciple one another, learn and apply God’s Word to our everyday lives. The people in the group provide mutual assistance in facing life’s difficulties through prayer, encouragement, counsel and personal example so that the hardship grows into an opportunity to know the Lord better and to experience His love. Community Groups also provide opportunities to engage your spiritual gifts to build up each other in a loving, Spirit-led environment.
Community Groups are hosted in homes and have regularly scheduled times of gathering for fellowship, studying God’s word and prayer. The groups are a mix of ages, professions, marital status and different stages of life. Please contact us if you would like to participate in a community group.
