The Christian life is meant to be a shared life. At Grace Church, we believe Christian growth occurs in a community, not in isolation. We are called to stir up one another to love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24), to bear one another’s burdens (Gal. 6:2) and to exercise our spiritual gifts for the building up of the church (1 Cor. 12-14).

Within Grace Church, Community Groups provide the context for members to meet from “house to house” (Acts 20:20), without neglecting our Sunday gathering of corporate worship (Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:2).
WHAT HAPPENS IN COMMUNITY GROUPS?
Connecting with Others
Community Groups provide an opportunity for Christians to develop intimate relationships. Biblical fellowship occurs as we observe and rejoice in God’s work in life we share together.
Personal Life Change
Community Groups provide an ideal context for us to help one another apply Scripture and the Gospel to specific areas of our lives so that we can grow to be more like Jesus.
God has given spiritual gifts to every Christian (1 Cor. 12:1-7). Community Groups allow for a smaller, personal context where each one can serve and use their specific gifts to serve one another.
The Community Group allows every individual in the church to give and receive practical care: from baby showers to help with moving or household repairs or even a ride to church. Being part of Community Group connects to people with whom you can mutually share the practical burdens of life.
