WHAT ARE COMMUNITY GROUPS?

Community groups are gatherings where discipleship takes place. They feature times of honesty and openness. Places where the power of the Gospel causes us to gather, grow and go! 

At GraceLife, we use three simple metrics to clarify and filter the vision God has given us as a church: Gather, Grow, and Go

All three of those metrics are critical. If you don’t gather, you won’t grow. If you don’t grow, you weaken your mission. But when you gather, you grow deep, stand tall and reach wide, “like a tree planted by streams of water.”

The three words that illustrate our core principles for Community Groups are Up, In, and Out.

UP: Community Groups nurture our worship of God. A group's first focus must be on God himself. Exploring God's Word together and joining others in prayer is a means of grace. It's how we believe God on behalf of one another. 1 John 4:19 - "We love because he first loved us." We love and relate to one another because of His love for us.
IN: Community Groups care for one another as a family. Since we are made in the image of a Trinitarian God, we can only bear God's image fully in community. In Christ we have been called to a family of believers, not an individual salvation. The most common metaphor to depict the church in the New Testament is a family. 1 John 4:11 - "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."
OUT: Community Groups reach non-believers with the Gospel. The Community Groups do not exist solely for themselves, but to advance the Kingdom of God in the places that we live and work. Group members engage non-Christians with the Gospel through personal relationships, local outreach, and neighboring those in our community. Matthew 28:19 - "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,"

Community Groups are intentional about following a rhythm which supports this vision.

The 2-1-1 Community Group Rhythm  
Two weeks of study & discussion 
One week of outreach
One week of fellowship

Each group has the freedom to decide what the calendar looks like but commits to the rhythm.
