Discipleship Communities

Discipleship Communities consists of approximately 8-16 individuals who gather together on a weekly basis in someone’s home for the purpose of loving God supremely, each other humbly, and the world sacrificially. Although groups gather each week at a scheduled time it is important to note that Discipleship Communities are not simply an event or meeting. Instead, we strive for our groups to be a community of people deeply invested in one another’s lives as they seek to live on mission together.

What does a typical Discipleship Community look like?

Each Discipleship Community is organized around the three fundamental characteristics of a disciple: Loving God Supremely, Loving One Another Humbly, and Loving the World Sacrificially. These characteristics are lived out within our Discipleship Communities in the following ways:

Loving God Supremely

Sermon Based Discussion | Our normal routine is to take the sermon passage that was preached from the previous Sunday and discuss the meaning and practical implications of the passage on our lives.

Prayer | Our church wide prayer meeting happens weekly in the living rooms where our Discipleship Communities gather.

Loving One Another Humbly

Humble Community | Discipleship Communities are the primary context for building meaningful and sincere relationships. This means group life involves praying for one another, encouraging one another, eating together, and celebrating together.

Humble Service | Discipleship Communities are the primary context within our church for serving and caring for one another's needs. Group members are the first response team in times of crisis and need.

Loving the World Sacrificially

Disciple-making | Each Discipleship Community identifies a specific group of people among whom they will lovingly and sacrificially seek to make disciples.

Ministries of Mercy | As each Discipleship Community lives on mission together they do so with hearts of mercy lovingly and sacrificially serving and caring for those in need.

How can I get involved in a group?

Simply contact the group leader of a group close to your home. They will answer any questions you may have and help you get placed in a group.

Which group should I be part of?

The primary organizing principle for our Discipleship Communities is this: living in close proximity to one another. Therefore, we would strongly recommend you choose the Discipleship Community that is located closest to your home. Organizing groups based on geographical location helps us to better live in community and on mission together in the context in which we live.
