Discipleship Community Groups

Our Purpose

Discipleship Community Groups (or DCs) exist to foster an environment where people come to experience the life-giving reign of Christ in every compartment of their lives in the context of loving community.

Today’s culture is completely “high tech and low touch.” It celebrates and promotes individualism over community. Privacy and seclusion are valued over connection. However, God didn’t design for us to live our lives alone. He created us for relationship with Him and with others. We were made to belong and to be part of a community—a group of people living life together, growing together, and serving God together. That’s why we created Discipleship Community Groups. Life-change doesn’t take place in isolation. They take place in the context of authentic life-on-life relationships that connect on a heart level.

Four Pillars of DC

Discipleship communities are all about getting our people to experience the life-giving reign of Christ through the Word, sacrificial care, prayer, and outreach. Through DCs, the church becomes more than a weekly meeting—it becomes who we are.

DCs are on break for the summer and will resume in September.




Life Academy Group

A weekly small group devoted to establishing theological fundamentals and philosophical foundations for developing the Christian mind. The class will start with an overview of basic theology and move on to philosophical issues and questions. The hope is to familiarize believers with tenets of their own faith as well as exposing them to the discipline of philosophy and exploring its role in Christian belief and worldview.

*Unlike the Life Academy workshops and classes offered in the past, this class is designed to be a community small group and will meet the entire year. The primary difference between this group and the Discipleship Communities is its curriculum.
