"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (Acts 2:42)
Community groups are usually between 5-15 people that meet at the church building or in homes. They are often centred around prayer, Scripture, and building friendships through shared life together. They are accessible to anyone and a great place to start if you are wanting to grow and get to know others. Here are some of the general community groups we have going on:
General community groups
When and where: Tuesday nights, 7pm, Bridge Church building
When and where: Thursday afternoons, 1:30-3pm, Bridge Church building
When and where: Friday nights, 7pm, Bridge Church building
Women's ministry: first Monday night of the month, Bridge Church building
Young Adults (18-25ish): every second Tuesday, 7pm, Bridge Church building
JOY 2.0 (for seniors who have been double vaccinated): Wednesday, 12pm, Bridge Church building
Families with young kids (eg. elementary school or younger): one Saturday morning a month, Bridge Church building. Pancake breakfast with Bible study and babysitting
If you are wanting some more info about any of these groups, you can contact Craig (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are beginning to emphasize what we are calling “Discipleship Groups”. These use a book called "Discipleship Essentials" by Greg Ogden and involve a high level of commitment and a high degree of intensity for a small group of people (3-4 people maximum). What we have found is that groups like this are the best way to grow in your faith if you are hungry for that. And let’s be clear: they are not just for people who have been Christians for a long time. In fact, they are an amazing way for people new to faith and church to grow in their understanding of the fundamentals, as well as for long-timers to be refreshed and more deeply rooted. The key requirement is a thirst for growth!
You can either form a discipleship group on your own by asking 2 or 3 people to join you, or you can ask Craig to connect you with others who are interested (email@example.com)
