What Is A Community Group?
Most community groups consist of 10-15 people who meet in a home once each week for around two hours to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. You do not have to be a member of Sojourn Midtown to be a part of a community group. All are welcome!
What Should I Expect?
Expect Jesus to be the focus. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (John 14:6). We believe that he should form and fuel everything we do.
Expect a variety of stories and relationships. (Romans 12:4-16)
Community groups are diverse. As we learn to live in harmony with one another, we reflect God’s hospitality and we grow in Christ-like humility.
Expect a relaxed and safe atmosphere. (John 13:34-35)
Your community group should be a place where you personally experience the love and grace of God from others. While you should expect this, keep in mind that all relational connection is a risk. Community groups are made up of imperfect people and imperfect people can, at times, cause us to feel anxious and unsafe. If you experience this, we encourage you to talk with the group leader or with a pastor and share your experience so we can grow together move toward greater love and grace.
Expect to invest and share. (Acts 2:42-47)
A community group is a place where we can live into the reality that God has blessed us so we can be a blessing to others. As with most things in life, what you get out of your community group depends heavily on what you are willing and able to put into the group.
