What's a Community Group?
Community is God's design for developing deeper relationships where believers can encourage each other in their faith, develop their unique spiritual giftings, and support each other in their life journey.
Who Can Participate?
Community Groups are for everyone.
Our current culture talks about diversity but actually follows a model of segregation. People are divided into groups based on age, race, gender, class, and interests.
Jesus was the great uniter bringing all people together around his message of repentance, forgiveness, love, and grace.
Our Community Groups are an extension of the unifying life of Jesus. We invite all ages and types of people to gather together around the common experience of new life in Jesus.
Are Kids Welcome?
Community Groups really are for everyone. With welcoming environments for all ages including small kids. Your kids will find a bully free place where they can enjoy being themselves and making friends who will love them for who they are.
What To Expect
Community Groups are as unique as the people who make them up. We encourage each House Church to use their unique small group to engage in four components; friendship, gratitude, discipleship, and outreach.
Deep friendships are built through shared experiences. In a Community Group you will share many experiences including; food, games, outdoor adventures, Bible study, ministry, and community outreach. Over time you will develop deep friendships with people who will love you deeply and encourage you to pursue your God-given destiny.
The Bible tells us to enter God's court (presence) through thanksgiving and praise. In a Community Group you will experience the presence of God through gratitude expressed in worship, testimonies, and relationship.
Each Community Group is led by a Community Group Pastor and filled with fellow seekers and believers who are committed to supporting you in learning about and modeling the unique life of Jesus.
The Bible calls us to go into the world and reach lost and broken people with the message of the gospel.
Community Groups are uniquely positioned to reach their local neighborhoods. Every Community Group is encouraged to use their unique creativity to love their neighbors and grow God's family.
When Do They Meet?
Our Community Groups meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm-8pm.

We have Community Groups in Round Rock, Hutto, Pflugerville, and Cedar Park. Please fill out the contact form for information on the community group closest to you. Faith and friendship are waiting for you!
