Community Groups at The Village

Connect with the People

The life of a disciple is more than a personal relationship with God. It’s personal relationships with others. When God becomes our Father, we gain brothers and sisters in the church. And local church families are put together on purpose, with the Spirit gifting each person with what the whole group needs. We get to exercise what God’s given us and stir one another up to love and good works in unique ways when we gather throughout the week in smaller community groups.


Invited to Gather

Anybody and everybody can visit and join a community group, no matter what they think about Jesus or the church. You can connect at any time, and kids are welcome. We don’t think kids get in the way of community; we believe they’re part of community!

Check out the When and Where of our groups below, read through what you can expect, and then fill out the form to reach out to a specific group’s leaders. It’s always a good idea to contact the leaders before showing up! While the addresses listed below are the group’s “home-base” they may be gathering elsewhere or be cooking up something different any given week.

What Should I Expect When I Join a Group?

We strive to have a balanced practice of gospel-formed community on mission. Because of that, we suggest that each of our groups create regular spaces to be be formed together by the gospel, to be known together in community, and to make, mature, and multiply disciples together on mission.

Under the Word
as Disciples

Community groups provide unique opportunities and settings to sit under the Word together. That usually looks like digging into the previous Sunday’s focal passage, carving out time to pray together, and seeking to be both informed and transformed by the gospel. We get to be an active part of one another’s discipleship.

Around the Table
as Family

Our groups will also spend time enjoying and getting to know one another. That might mean sharing a meal, having a game night, going to a park, or doing something else together. We believe knowing and being known by others is key to enriching our time under the Word together and among neighbors with one another.

Among Neighbors
as Missionaries

As disciple-making disciples, we want our groups to both be a space and enter into other spaces where they can interact and invest in people outside the church together. We ought to be a blessing to the whole world, and that happens at The Village when groups live as a gospel-formed community for those who aren’t yet part of it!


Want to start or lead a community group?

We always want to be training new leaders and planting new groups! If you have a desire to lead a group someday, want to start a group now, or simply want to learn more about what it means to be a group leader, let us know by filling out the form. Someone will follow up with you soon. We’d love to talk with you!
