Community groups are where the life of church happens during the week.

 

Community groups do 5 things together: 

  1. Worship through song or liturgy.
  2. Interact with scripture through discussion, study, lectio divina, etc.
  3. Pray for each other.
  4. Engage suffering together through things like sharing a meal with folks at the Clintonville Resource Center.
  5. Form new groups. Healthy things grow. It’s natural that new groups will be birthed as new leaders and hosts emerge.
 

Our Community, Women’s and Youth Groups have regular rhythms of service and breaks; new people are encouraged to contact leaders before showing up to make sure they are meeting and where.

Please contact Adrienne if we can help you find a group. We'd love to!
