Summer Community Groups


This summer, rather than gather at the church for midweek service or class, we are encouraging each family or individual to host community groups in their home, front porch, driveway or backyard once a week during these summer months.

No need to sign up. Simply be the church! You are already equipped to do this. 

We are called to show we are Christians by our love, and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, and this is exactly what we intend to do by breaking bread with those God has placed around us. This the best way we can serve and love our neighbors.

It’s easy!

  1. Pick a weekly day and time to gather.
  2. Make an invitation (or choose some of the standard ones below)
  3. Text, email or hand the invitation to your neighbors, family and friends with your specific details.
  4. Create an atmosphere of welcome, encouragement, hope and prayer as you eat together. (Fire up the grill and get some good music playing and they will come!)
  5. Be real, not religious! This isn’t a Bible Study, this is a time to get to know your neighbors and be interested in their world.

Why should you join a group?

In times of need and times of fun, Grace small groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.
Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You'll never fully experience all that Grace has to offer until you connect in a small group! Join a group anytime!
