Community Groups

The gospel is best communicated through relationships. Simply put, Christians grow best in relationships with other Christians, and non-Christians see Christ most clearly in relationships with Christians. Community groups are small groups that allow us to enjoy friendships centered on Jesus. They give us the opportunity to grow in Christ spiritually and love one another practically as we study the Bible, pray, enjoy friendships, and reach out to neighbors. Through these ‘micro-communities’ people are given the opportunity to work the gospel into everyday life, build mutually supportive relationships, serve one another and local neighbors, and invite others to explore the Christian faith. As you can see, community groups give us an opportunity to be the church in the community of Hendersonville, NC.
