Home Groups: What’s the Point?

In a word: relationships.

Home Groups are all about relationships with each other and with God. We’ve got a pretty good vibe going at our meetings. The environment is friendly– you can relax, decompress, and refocus on the important things. We eat a big meal, catch up with one another, and laugh quite a bit. Since the grace Jesus offers is the center of our community, we observe communion together, spend time with the stories of the Bible, and pray for one another.

Home Group meetings are great, but they’re not the most important part of it. The real stuff is the relationships that are forming: true friends who will be there for you when you need them, but who will also challenge you to grow when you need it. Those ongoing relationships are what make this an every day church.

Church is the Gospel Community. If there’s no Gospel– no Truth about Jesus– then it isn’t really a church. If there’s no community– no relationships– then it isn’t really a church. Our Home Groups are where we see the Gospel community taking shape.
