COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community Groups are designed to help believers build significant, Gospel-centered relationships with one another. Community Groups are wholeheartedly committed to the spread of the Gospel, helping one another to receive Christ, live with Christ as Lord, and be continually rooted in Christ.

The biblical model for discipleship overwhelms us with God's design for community. As we intentionally open our lives to one another, we carry out God's desire for us to follow Jesus—by doing it together!

Values and Goals

Community Groups value and work toward: 

  1. Gospel transformation: to live daily transformed by the Gospel
  2. Interaction with Scripture: to know God more
  3. Prayer: to enjoy our dependence on God
  4. True fellowship: to encourage, equip, and account intimately
  5. Mutual care: to selflessly meet one another's needs

Get Involved

Community Groups meet in homes throughout Crystal Lake and surrounding areas on a weekly basis. Since our members span a wide variety of personal interests and life experiences, we're certain there's a Community Group where you can belong. *Groups meet from September to April.
