Why Small Groups?
Our hope is that City Church would be a community of friends engaged in gospel-centered relationships resembling the early Church (Acts 2:42). We believe it is important for all our members to be in a small group. Active participation in a small group is critical for your spiritual health as you grow in your understanding and application of God’s direction in your life.
Alongside Jesus’s public ministry, He had a primary small group that he did life with. Through the Holy Spirit in them, this small original group multiplied to change the world! The early church (Acts 2:42-47) was a great example of this, as they gathered at the temple for corporate worship and met in homes (community together). It wasn’t an either/or but a both/and. Biblical community involves larger worship services and smaller groups.
As the church grows, relationships become more difficult to maintain. The best way to enter into relationships that care for people personally and intentionally is through smaller groups. We believe at City Church that being in a small group allows you to be known and loved.
Small groups at City Church are a place where you can belong in gospel community and engage in spiritual formation. Small groups give you the opportunity to intentionally intersect your lives with others and live out a holistic Christian life.
What To Expect
The Christian life should be lived out in a unique community that helps you belong and feel part of a community and grow in discipleship. Our small groups will have seasonal rhythms to facilitate this movement that multiplies disciples.
BUILDING GOSPEL COMMUNITY
As we gather together each week, each group shares a meal together. Along with fellowship, this helps strengthen community as you serve and get to know one another.
Each week, we also focus on a regular rhythm of spiritual formation. That includes spending time interacting with prayer, scripture, serving, and growing in spiritual disciplines that apply to each of our lives.
We want to equip small groups to spend time investing in their communities. By intersecting with your neighbors, co-workers, and friends, each small group catalyzes and partners together to intentionally love and serve our city.
