Community Groups

Community Groups

In an age of limited discretionary time, technology, and the resulting isolation amidst vast oceans of souls, it is increasingly important that people fellowship in one another’s presence. God made us so we communicate very differently when looking each other in the eye, not to mention the effects of voice, countenance, touch and body language. For this reason and others (accountability may be chief among those), we have community groups. While our community groups are centered around the Word, fellowship, and prayer, each will have their own characteristics and emphases.

Beginning in September 2016, many groups will be reading through Timothy Keller’s book Every Good Endeavor. In his book, Keller examines what work was created to be, how sin has impacted it, and how we can overcome difficulties and find satisfaction in our work. Work is an essential part of our nature; it was part of the mission given in the garden of Eden before the fall (Genesis 2:15). Because work is so fundamental to who we are, this topic is relevant to us all. We invite you to join us as we read and discuss this thought-provoking book.

Groups are meeting all over the eastside. Below you will find a list of our leaders and when they meet.
