What are community groups?
Community Groups are the way that attendees at Church of the Canyons connect with each other and grow spiritually. We believe that Jesus changes us for the better when we allow Him to work in and through each of us in the context of community. Jesus wasn’t raised from death so that we would stay spiritually immature. He was raised so that the power of the gospel could change us and make us like him. This happens most effectively when we enter into the lives of other believers and allow them into ours. It is for this reason that we invite you to experience the power of the gospel in the joy of community!
What do community groups do?
Groups meet weekly at various times to spend time praying for each other and to discuss the previous week’s sermon. There is approximately 1/2 hour worth of homework each week to prepare for group discussion. In order for groups to be as effective as possible, it is crucial that each person is committed to attend faithfully, prepare adequately, and share regularly. Groups are also limited in size to around 12 people so that transparency and involvement can be fostered. Along with this, groups will get together once during each session to either enjoy some recreational time together or to carry out some project in the community.
If you are looking to develop some really good friendships and see the gospel worked out practically in your life and the lives of others, consider joining a Community Group.
