Community Groups at The Village

Why Gather with a Group?

The Christian life is so much more than a personal relationship with God. It’s a new relationship with God’s family, the church! We were made to flourish in gospel-formed community on mission. We get to be under the word as disciples, around the table as family, and among neighbors as missionaries together, letting God work in us, on us, and through us within the context of a community that he alone brought together and is building up.

Our Community Groups are a first step at The Village. Want to get connected with us? Join a group! As a smaller expression of The Village Church, they’re a fundamental way we want to make, mature, and multiply disciples.

Can I join a group?

Absolutely! Anyone can visit or join a community group, no matter what they think about Jesus or the church. You can join a group 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!)

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 any given week.

Where We Gather

When We Gather

We gather weekly for three months at a time. Those three months are the same each year, and they are:

  • January – March
  • May – July
  • September – November

We take the months of April, August, and December as months of rest from our weekly gatherings. This fits into cultural rhythms (spring break, summer vacation and back-to-school, and the holidays), gives our leaders and hosts a regular time of renewal and reflection, and provides natural on-ramps and off-ramps for those joining a group for the first time, switching groups, or planting new ones.

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

We suggest that each group take a couple weekly gatherings a month 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

One gathering a month, we suggest our groups just 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

One gathering a month, we suggest our groups either join a space or create their own where they can intentionally interact and invest in people outside the church together. The church ought to be a blessing to the whole world, and that happens at The Village when a whole community group lives 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!
