Why Community?

We, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

Community is the fabric of who we are and what God has designed us to be as believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. As members of the same body of Christ, we need one another. No Christian can live a life that reaches its fullest potential apart from a community of believers; nor can a Christian say to any other member of the community, “I do not need you.”

A Three-Fold Approach


Community is about living life together. We are committed to helping people develop authentic friendships through common interests, shared hurts and disappointments, and celebration of life's successes and victories. We want you to have a place where you belong.


Community provides a safe environment where people support each other through prayer, encouragement, and accountability. When a member of the community is in need, the community rallies to visit, support, and pray for that individual.


The foundations for spiritual growth in community are Bible studies or sermon-based discussions, prayer, service projects, fellowship, and accountability. Growth best occurs within the context of community.

What Does Community Look Like?

Campus Community Groups

Team-led Community Groups of 15-40 people who usually meet on campus, but not exclusively on Sunday mornings. Campus Community Groups are always open to visitors.

Home Community Groups

Team-led Community Groups of 8-16 people who meet in homes throughout the week (size is a function of space available in the host home). Home Community Groups provide a more personal, intimate setting than Campus Community Groups, and when full, they may sometimes be closed off to new visitors.

Speciality Community Groups

Specialty Community Groups cater to a specific demographic within the church. Groups like Celebrate Recovery, men's and women's groups, and others which meet the three-fold purpose of Community Life are considered Speciality Community Groups. Not every group which meets during the week is a Community Group. There are a number of groups (bible studies, choir, English as a Second Language, etc) which meet regularly but do not fulfill all three purposes for Community Life. These are considered equipping/serving ministries rather than Community Groups.

From the Community

What are people are saying about Community?

Sharing experiences, mentoring, relying on others, giving other people the opportunity to bless you and being given the opportunity to bless others.



I have never been to a church that was so understanding as well as accepting. I have realized that there are people who don't judge us by our past or by our circumstances.



There are really no words to explain how it has changed my life... with all the love that they show anybody who walks through the doors. They assess your situation, good or bad, and bend over backwards to help you out.



It's the people that I want to share the most intimate, exciting, devastating; all of the things that make my life what it is, they're the people I want to share that with. It's the constant reminder that I am not alone, and knowing that I can see God through the people He's using in my life.

Standing upon Holy Scripture, we choose relationship over rule because love is stronger than compulsion.

Covenant - The Covenant group meets Sunday mornings for fellowship and study, and includes married couples with children of various ages. Our focus is on building relationships during our time on Sundays as well as other periodic functions, and gaining practical knowledge of God’s Word for application in our daily lives as we seek to serve those around us.
