GET CONNECTED WITH OTHERS

 

COMMUNITY GROUPS-FALL 2018

This important ministry is organized to carry out the mission of the church.  We seek to discover the truths of the Bible in an interactive way while making life application and partnering with God to use us in our relational network.   The format we use is designed to encourage group interaction, sharing and intentional outreach.  The question we ask ourselves is not “How much do I know?” but “How much am I imitating Jesus?” We’re called to reach,teach and admonish one another with the wisdom of God’s Word, not our own. We invite you to join us as we all look at ways to make this year, and the rest of our lives, the best they can be.
Everyone is invited to attend.  Scroll down to see complete schedule.

Community Groups are Small intentional groups of people who meet together to encourage one another and learn the Bible through interactive discussion. It’s a place where people are made to feel welcome and genuinely cared for; a place where it’s safe to share struggles; a place to be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith; a place to build real friendships and share life as we pursue Jesus together.Group discussion focuses on the Scripture text that was taught during the previous Sunday morning service. There is also a “care” time to discover needs and pray for those in attendance. We also set time aside for  sharing how God used us during the week to outreach to non-Christians.  
 The Church is called to stand on these core fundamentals.
 
  • Sharing Life          (Acts 2:40-47; Rom 1:12; 2 Cor 13:11; Gal 6:2; 1 Thess 4:16-18; 5:11; 1 John 1:7)

As described in the New Testament, the early church was a close community who willingly shared their lives with each other.

  • Serving Others       (John 13:14; Gal 5:13; Phil 2:3; James 5:16; 1 Pet 4:10)
By humbly viewing others as more significant than ourselves, we serve one another by interceding in prayer, being available for practical needs, and seeking first and foremost their spiritual maturity.
  • Loving God                     (Matt 6:33; 22:37)

 

We love God in our growth groups by making Him a priority in our lives, by seeking Him together and telling others about Him.

  • Discovering Truth (John 8:31-32; 17:17; Rom 15:14; Col 1:28; 3:15-16; Heb 4:12; 2 Tim 3:14-17)

We seek to discover the truths of the Bible in an interactive way while making life application. The format we use is designed to encourage group interaction and sharing. The group leader is not necessarily a teacher, but a facilitator who participates and keeps things moving.
