From the very beginning oneChurch has been a church that cherishes authentic community. Our goal is to have approximately 80% of our church in a community group. That’s a big goal, but it’s one we believe is worth striving to achieve because community groups provide a place to foster genuine, transparent relationships. Community groups play an essential role in the care and development of a Christ-follower. It’s the environment where sustained life change occurs.
Community groups usually consist of 10 to 18 people who gather together on a regular basis to study God’s word and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up. Most groups meet in homes; however, groups can meet anywhere from office buildings to comfortable cafes.
Practically speaking, there will never be a way for the staff or elders to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That’s why we place such a high premium on group life. It’s how we minister effectively at oneChurch.
Interested in Community Groups?
OR attend a GroupLink event:
GroupLink is the primary way to get connected into Community Groups at oneChurch. At GroupLink, we don’t place you in a group – you choose your own! Our GroupLink events 4 times a year (January, April, August & October) after our Sunday morning services. Childcare is provided. This will be your opportunity to learn exactly what a Community Group is and find your own group.
“But I have kids!”
We consider community groups such a priority that we have set aside money to provide for childcare expenses. You arrange for your own child care and we will reimburse you up to the amount listed on our reimbursement form here.
