Community Groups at Grace

At Grace, we believe that living life in authentic relationships leads to spiritual transformation.

Life is Better Connected.

Our mission for community is to connect people in authentic relationships that lead to spiritual transformation. Community groups play a vital role in helping relationships flourish in the life of the church. In community, we are known, loved, cared for, pursued, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Christ.

Groups usually consist of about 12 people that meet together in homes to apply the Bible, build relationships, and care for others.

Looking to join a community group? Please see the map below for different opportunities to join others.

What is the goal of community groups?
Groups exist to help you do three things: Apply the Bible to life, Build relationships, and Care for others.

What kind of groups are there?
We have groups comprised of all ages and stages of life. We will work to find a group that is a good fit for you.

When do the groups meet?
Groups meet one night each week during the school year. Groups decide which night of the week is best for them. During the summer, groups take a break from regular meetings and often do social gatherings.

How long does each meeting last?
Each group decides the length of time they will meet. Most groups meet for about 90 minutes to 2 hours.

What do groups study?
Groups may choose to discuss Sunday’s sermon, do a topical study, discuss a book of the Bible, read a book, watch a video series, or discuss a podcast.

Where do the groups meet?
Typically, groups meet in group members’ homes. During this season groups are meeting in homes, backyards, restaurants, parks, online, or a mixture of all of the above. See where they are located HERE.

What about childcare?
Childcare is managed by each individual group.

How long do groups stay together?
It all depends on the group. Healthy things grow, so we want groups growing together spiritually and numerically. As groups grow, they often multiply to create room for more people, helping keep the group small enough for everyone to fully engage.

What happens in group meetings?
Though each group differs in how they do things, group meetings include a social time, group discussion, and prayer.

Can I visit a group before “joining”?
Absolutely. We encourage everyone to check out a group before making a commitment. Feel free to check out more than one group. We hope visiting a group will relieve your natural hesitations and answer your questions.
