Small Groups

We seek to live out what happens in our worship on Sunday morning. This means that we are committed to building a strong and vibrant culture that flows out our experience of the life of God. God is not an impersonal force, but a community of persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) who have loved each other for all eternity. Since we are made in the image of God, part of what it means to be human is to be created in and for community. Simply put, you cannot be truly human or truly yourself apart from loving relationships with other people. For this reason, we have organized our church into geographically focused groups of families and individuals.

We believe that the Triune God is sovereign over all areas of life, and this includes the particular neighborhood/area where we live. We believe that where we actually live is exceedingly important. In light of this call toward our neighbors, we have divided our church into geographically based small groups. In the future, we hope to further localize our small groups in order to more effectively carry out our vision.

What is a Small Group?

Each of our small groups seek to be a place where people can experience significant, substantial, encouraging friendships.  While each small group is different, having its own personality, we have 5 actions that make a Small Group:

Jesus said, “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living.  They are foundational words, words to build a life on.  If you work these into your life, you are a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock.” Matthew 7:24, The Message)

We believe God acts differently when we pray then when we don’t.  When we pray together, not only does God hear and answer us, he strengthens our relationships with each other.

Eating and drinking together knits our hearts together in the same way that Jesus and his disciples experienced.  As we share what’s happening in our lives we are able to enter into the joy and hope that community offers.

The extravagant generosity of Jesus Christ toward us compels us to be generous in our service to one another.  Small Groups are the front lines of care for our church.  A phone call and prayer, a pot of sou, an afternoon cleaning someone’s house, watching their kids, running errands — these are practical ways that we live our our Christian faith and how we experience the Risen Lord.

If our Christian faith does not translate into loving and blessing our neighbors and city, then something is terribly wrong.  We encourage our small groups to think like missionaries.  Since each group is rooted in its place, this will look differently for each one.  But, this will typically involve, direct or personal evangelism, neighborhood parties, caring for those who are weak or vulnerable and forming strategic partnerships with community organizations that are working to improve our community and serve “the least of these”
