What is a Community Group? 

A group of people gathered together to understand Jesus, grow in their relationship with Jesus, build relationships and belong to one another, and a place to receive encouragement to be an influence to others who do not know Jesus.

Why should I be in a Community Group?

God created us in His image and desires for us to be in relationship with one another.  We need each other for support in life and for encouragement to remain faithful to God and to be an influence to others for His Glory.
