Biblical Community is defined as “a group experience providing direction and care that is rooted in biblical truth for a desired outcome of life change.” This community is where you receive long-term care through regular meetings with other committed members. The majority of our members are engaged in Community Groups, however, we have a growing number of Recovery, Care & Equipping groups that help meet members’ needs during a specific season of life. We believe that finding Biblical Community is essential to care and growth at Grace Church. Group launches vary by campus.
Community Groups are the heartbeat of our church and serve as the primary setting for members to grow in spiritual passion as they seek to live out the core values of the Christian life: Biblically Oriented, Relationally Connected, Ministry Focused, Culturally Engaged, Courageously Generous, and Prayerfully Dependent. A Community Group consists of 12-14 adults who are encouraging one another to mature in their faith while serving to meet each other’s needs.
Groups meet weekly following the local school calendar. Most meetings last around two hours. During that time a group will eat some snacks or share a meal, work through their curriculum, share what is going on in their lives, pray, and encourage one another wherever they are in their journey of faith. Most of our groups meet in homes, and they often rotate meeting in each other’s homes.
The first step to getting involved in Biblical Community is the completion of Discovery. Upon completion of Discovery you can enroll in Foundations. Foundations leading into a group will be the beginning of your group experience. If you have any additional questions please contact your campus pastor.
GroupLife Mosaic is a Sunday morning worship service for students and adults with disabilities who meet at the Pelham and Travelers Rest campuses. During GroupLife Mosaic, our participants worship and hear teaching based on the Scripture passages we are studying as a church. Afterwards, they break up into community groups to discuss what they heard and apply it to their lives.
