I AM NEW HERE…AM I READY FOR A COMMUNITY GROUP?
Life is hard. It was never meant to be lived in isolation. Community is a gift of God intended to help us see and experience the good news of Jesus in profound and tangible ways. This is the perfect place for you to belong, ask questions, and wrestle with your faith in a community of people who care for you, not because your life is 'together', but because you are created in the image of God. In Community Groups, people talk through life issues, eat together, pray together, laugh together, struggle together, and serve others while their lives are being transformed by the grace of God.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY GROUP?
Gathering weekly for fellowship and accountability, study and prayer, good times and tears. Community Groups are an essential expression of our church’s mission. At the heart of this ministry is the desire to see a community of believers who worship Jesus, love one another, and embody the mission of Florence Christian Church - to become like Christ.
WHY ARE COMMUNITY GROUPS SOIMPORTANT TO FLORENCE CHRISTIAN CHURCH?
Getting connected means participating in both Sunday gatherings and a Community Group. Sunday's are a time for celebrating in worship of Jesus together, hearing the preaching of the Word, and sharing in Communion. Community Groups are the place where the seeds of the preached Word take root and become real. It is the place where we build relationships with one another and living life together. As well, it is within the groups and neighborhoods of the city that we can participate in the work that God has called us to as a church.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I GO?
Community Groups are unique as each group reflects the people that make it up. However, you can expect a weekly gathering that involves food, conversation, prayer, discussion for applying the Bible to practical living, that moves us to serve others.
