Community Groups

Community Groups are the primary means through which Renewal Church gathers to live out the gospel and mature together in its truth (gospel community) and to spread the gospel incarnationally through word and deed (gospel mission).

 

Gathering weekly throughout our region for fellowship and accountability, Bible study and prayer, shared laughter and tears, Community Groups are a central expression of our church’s vision to see lives and our region transformed for Jesus. The goal is to cultivate a devoted community of believers who worship Jesus, love one another, and together serve those in need of the hope of the gospel.

 

To visit and join a community group in your region, let us help you get connected. Sign up for a community group and our coordinators will contact you and help connect you to a group.

Why are community groups important at Renewal?

Getting connected at Renewal means participating in both the Sunday worship gathering and a Community Group. Sundays are a time for celebrating in worship of Jesus and receiving the preaching of the Word and sacraments together as one body. Community Groups are the primary context where the seeds of the preached Word take root, get nurtured, and bear fruit. It is the place where we build authentic spiritual relationships with one another, share life together, and live out the gospel. Also, it is within these groups within the neighborhoods of our city that we can participate in God’s mission to incarnate the gospel to our broken world.

We encourage you to consider community group you see yourself most faithfully and effectively participating in a lifestyle of gospel community and mission. For most, this will be the community group nearest where you live. We believe Christians can be most effective when the whole of their lives are as integrated as possible: their home, their work, their network of relationships (including unbelieving friends, co-workers, classmates, and neighbors), and their church life
