Community groups are the heartbeat of Community Church. On Sundays, we worship as a church family. During the week, we meet in smaller groups (usually 8-12 people) where you can really connect with others and go deeper into God's Word.
It's just like what Jesus did. He taught large crowds of people and also met in a smaller group with his disciples.
You will have so much fun in your community group! Friends enjoy activites, meals, and lots of laughs together.
You might study the Bible at a local park, spend a night out bowling, or head to the movies. There are groups for every situation and season in your life; from young adults to retirees, to single moms and empty nesters. There are also special groups based on shared hobbies.
When a crisis strikes or you're just having one of those days, your community group is there to support you. You can count on your group to offer prayer, love, and assistance.
You will also be able to feel the joy of helping others in need when you support your friends or do a community service project as a group.
Community Group Testimonials
In a culture where virtual relationships are the norm, my community group has given me a place to find authentic, face-to-face friendships. The people in my community group have become some of my closest friends, the people I call when I need a buddy to go out to dinner with or just want to hang out.
As someone who doesn't have family living nearby, my community group has become my "family" and my support system here in the Poconos. I love doing life in community!
I was looking for a way to live a less self-centered life, come out of my shell, connect with and serve other people. But I didn't know how to do this or approach anyone without feeling like an outcast.
My community group has given me what I've been looking for. I'm blessed to be a part of a group where we are welcomed, supported, and can share without being judged. This type of acceptance in a group proves we're all children of a loving, caring God. It's a feeling everyone should constantly have.
Myriam & Victor Muniz
We have been hosting community groups for years and have loved helping people grow in Christ. It's so rewarding to see someone from your group get baptized or see a marriage blossom through a group.
Community groups have helped us turn friends into family. We like to call them 'framily.' We are there for each other in the good and bad times. Once, when we were our of the country, our daughter got sick and was hospitalized. We called our group and they were able to be there for her, just like family.
Join a Group
The best way to sign up for a group is to visit the Groups Hub on a Sunday morning! When you enter the front doors, head left. Group leaders with a list of all the groups available will help you find the perfect fit. If you are unable to visit the groups hub, please fill out the form above and we will help you get plugged in.
Most groups meet every-other week for about an hour and a half. Groups are ongoing but typically take a short break over Christmas and in the summer.
Most groups start out with a time of fellowship and snacks or a meal. Then, they take some time to discuss a topic chosen by the group leader. It's often a video curriculum, book chapter, or section of the Bible. Community Groups usually end with sharing prayer needs and praying for one another.
Yes! While we encourage you to attend regularly (that’s the best way to build relationships!), just let your leader know if you won’t be able to attend your group. That way, they can keep you in the loop and up-to-date on any group happenings.
We have many groups that welcome families to bring their kids along. Stop by the Groups Hub in the church lobby (When you enter the front doors, head left) to find one that fits your schedule.
