Outside of our Sunday gatherings Community Groups are a primary means of developing relationships, growing as disciples, and engaging in mission.
Our Community Groups share three common goals:
Being faithful to Jesus
Being faithful to Jesus’ Church
Being faithful to Jesus’ Mission
We want Community Groups where we are personally ministered too and maturing, a place of encouragement and care for others, and a place of mission, where we see our group as a group sent out to demonstrate and declare the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What would happen in us if we dedicated time in every meeting to pray for one another in sharing the Gospel? What would be different in our group if we had more of a “missional living” mindset? Jesus gave each and every one of us a call to make disciples. We have a God-ordained mission of seeking to demonstrate and share the love of Jesus Christ with those around us.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I aw with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
Seminole and Orange Counties, and the world beyond us desperately needs to see what life in Christ really looks like, and we must be willing to “go”. Go doesn’t mean we need to move to the other side of the world; it means be faithful where we are. We don’t want to passively wait for people to find us; we want to go to them, like Jesus did, and like Jesus instructed.
