Community Groups

Community Groups

You were designed by God to live in community.  We believe we grow the most when we are in relationship to one another.  Sunday worship gatherings are great, but it is difficult get to know one another on a deeper level in rows.  Sitting in someone’s living room is a much better environment to grow and share.   We begin new community groups three times a year.

Spring Groups:  January-May

Summer Groups:  June-August

Fall Groups:  September-December

Fall Semester  2022 Groups

Beginning the various dates in August and September 2022

The Primal Path

Monthly gathering, start date Wednesday August 24 August-July 2023 (12 gatherings)

Every son aches for their father to guide them through the challenging teen years into manhood. The Primal Path is a group designed to help overwhelmed but determined fathers create an intentional process for walking their sons from adolescence into manhood. You will begin by confronting your own wounds, then discovering the wisdom and values from your own life, then move through a strategic framework to impart these into your son’s life. Drawing from timeless wisdom, biblical truth and personal story you will create the thing you wish you had during your formative years. This group is designed for fathers of sons of any age, but all dads are welcome. Location will vary. Facilitated by John Bradley.


SUMMER Semester  2022 Groups

Beginning the various dates in June 2022

Men: KeEping It Real

Tuesdays 6-7p at RHC (ongoing)

This gathering of men will process what is happening in our lives, encourage each other with a word from scripture, and prayer. Once a month this group will participate in the River Region What’s At Steak gathering. This night includes a free steak dinner and encouraging speaker. Facilitated by Jim Owen.

Resilient Faith

Wednesdays at 6:00 pm at the home of Mike & Jen Coleman (Mulder Cove neighborhood). Begins June 8

For so many Christians in the American culture, faith is an easy thing. They go to church, they read the Bible, and they love Jesus. But what happens when their comfortable world is turned upside down? For too many people, their faith is shaken. Faith in Christ can-and should-be constant, because Christ, the One in whom we place our faith, is constant. We all face-or will face-difficult times when we need to stand firm in our Christ-centered faith. The Book of 1 Peter offers the needed understanding of what a resilient faith looks like and how we can stand strong regardless of what comes at us. Facilitated by Mike & Jen Coleman.

Heaven 

Tuesdays 6:00p at the home of Bret & Sonia Devine (Emerald Mountain). Begins June 1.

As the years pass and we watch more and more of our family and friends pass away, it is only natural to ask questions about heaven. However, our understanding of heaven is often limited to a few half-forgotten Sunday school lessons and the insubstantial images provided by popular movies and T.V. Fortunately, scripture provides us with a definitive description of heaven. We’ll discuss our most serious questions about heaven and answers a few of our less serious questions as well. We want you to develop a deeper understanding of our eternal destination and find the courage to strive for heaven while living on earth. Facilitated by Bret & Sonia Devine.

Colossians  

Wednesdays 6:30 PM Home of Brian & Kelli Hardin (Coventry) Begins June 8.

What we think about Jesus matters. Our perception of Him shapes us—what we say, how we treat others, even what we think. If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers. This journey will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin. Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world. Facilitated by Brian & Kelli Hardin.

IRRESISTIBLE: Reclaiming the New The Jesus Unleashed in the World 

GROUP IS FULL

Wednesdays 6:30 PM At the home of Wes & Amanda Gunn (Emerald Mountain) Begins June 8.

Once upon a time there was a version of the Christian faith that was practically irresistible. After all, what could be more so than the gospel that Jesus ushered in? Why, then, isn’t it the same with Christianity today? It’s time to hit pause and consider the faith modeled by our first-century brothers and sisters who had no official Bible, no status, and little chance of survival. It’s time to embrace the version of faith that initiated—against all human odds—a chain of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen. Facilitated by Wes & Amanda Gunn

Ladies: Testimony Meeting

Every 2nd Saturday of the month (Jun 11, Jul 9, Aug 13)
9:00 am, Brunch Pot Luck
152 Ridgefield Drive 

Ladies you are invited to come be apart of our Testimony group. We fellowship over a brunch potluck then listen to a speaker. These meetings are designed to have a designated speaker who shares her testimony, miracle, lesson learned or lesson learning. She shares her God story or one of her God stories  with the rest of us. 

This is a wonderful way to hear the fruits of our sisters as we glorify and exalt the Lord together. Come be encouraged with us.
