Weekly Community-based groups

Biblical Community Groups

Biblical Community Groups are not an attempt to do anything new or novel. In fact, they are an attempt to live out the sort of Christian community the first-century church demonstrates in the book of Acts. These groups often meet every week in a group member’s home for a potluck meal, to pray for one another, study a passage of Scripture or Biblical topic, and encourage one another with the hope that we have received in Jesus!
