Connecting with people at a big church can be challenging. Our Connect Group is a quick and easy way to take the first step and get plugged in. Learn more about the ministries of our church, get to know our leaders, and meet other people in the process. The group runs for six weeks, beginning February 27th from 11am - 12:15pm in Reber Chapel.
The Journey is made up of hundreds of small communities spread out across the Midwest, focused on living life together while serving Jesus and their neighborhoods. Community in the Bible takes a lot of forms, but here are a few themes:
We believe that as Christians, God has called us to love our neighbor, whoever they are, whatever they believe, and whatever they need. Our Community Groups and their members serve our region together, meeting needs as they arise and striving to make their neighborhoods a better place.
The Bible speaks of the church as a family, as people whose lives have intertwined with each other because of Jesus. Families take care of each other when they need help, which is what the first Christians in the early church exemplified. Our community groups strive to model the same sacrificial love, helping each other in all the ways a family would when needs arise.
The goal of our communities is much more than having coffee and a good time (though that's often included). We want to be more like Jesus, and learning how to do that is at the heart of our time together. Our groups are devoted to sharpening one another, to exploring together, and to helping each other live more like Jesus every day.
