WHAT IS A COMMUNITY GROUP?
They are small gatherings of people (Christian and non) that meet regularly for friendship, accountability, study and prayer, laughter, and occasionally tears. They are an essential expression of the mission of Three Rivers Church. They’re a place where we learn more about Jesus and life together. They’re the place where we wrestle with the truths of the Bible and encourage one another toward the life that God intends for us. Each CG is unique, shaped by its neighborhood and the people who attend. However, you can expect a weekly gathering in a home involves conversation, prayer, discussion for applying the Bible to practical living and sometimes food!
At the heart of each CG is the desire to see an authentic community marked by love for Jesus, one another, and the neighborhood. We have a deep desire for our Community Groups to accomplish the following goals:
- To provide an avenue for connection to others within the group and provide mutual encouragement in their relationship with Christ.
- To provide a deeper understanding and personal growth in the Word through accountability in our groups.
- To engage the people in our neighborhoods by showing them Jesus and inviting them to come be part of a Community Group.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A COMMUNITY GROUP?
The God of the Bible is a Trinitarian God who is one and three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. God has made us in His image, which means we are made for fellowship and friendship. When we are not living in community we suffer because life in a sinful world is too complex and tempting to journey alone. CGs are a place where we can live in relationship with one another through the ups and downs of life.
