We believe that the most effective way to facilitate in-depth discipleship and spiritual growth in our church is to organize ourselves into Community Groups. As the name suggests, Community Groups help us live out the gospel in loving "community" with each other. They help us build the authentic relationships and have the meaningful conversations that are the lifeblood of our church, truly being the spiritual family that we are.
Family at its best is a group of people who loves you for who you are and cares for you no matter what. And that's what we believe God has designed the church to be. He's designed it to be so much more than a place to attend once a week and exchange cordial greetings. Rather, he wants it to function like a spiritual family where people truly know each other, love each other, and care for each other’s needs. That's what Community Groups are designed to facilitate.
Community Groups are a lot more than just another meeting or program tacked onto our church's calendar. Rather, they’re the primary organizing structure of the church. It may even be helpful to think of Redeeming Grace Church as a collection of house churches (Community Groups) that all meet together on Sunday morning for a common worship gathering. That's how fundamental Community Groups are to our DNA.
Every week, Community Groups meet together to do what Hebrews 10:24 instructs us to do and "stir up one another to love and good works." These meetings can include a variety of different things like studying the Bible, discussing Sunday’s sermon, going through a Christian book together, enjoying a meal, celebrating a significant life event, doing a service project in the community, or simply doing something fun together.
