As a church family we want to focus on the growth of new "Community Groups". Jesus calls all of his followers to be radically committed to Him (Matthew 16:24-26). We believe that commitment to Jesus includes commitment to His bride, the church. As a church family, Gracepoint Church wants to express our commitment to Jesus and His bride through involvement in Sunday gatherings (gather), a Community Group (go), and in a DNA group (grow), all of which provide ample opportunities to steward the gifts and talents God has given us (give).
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY GROUP?
A CG is a gathering of people located in your closest geographic area (community) that meet together about once a month. It may consist of families, children, those who are single or married, men and women, and adults of all ages. It is a time for connection and fellowship so you can get to know the people that attend Gracepoint Church who live near you.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF A CG?
The goal is to provide an atmosphere for connection. It’s hard to get to know each other with a quick handshake on a Sunday morning. A Group gives you a place to meet people and be known. It also a way to invite those who do not yet have any meaningful connections at Gracepoint; or those who do not even attend church.
Fellowship and connection happens when we are genuine, we have fun, we grow, and we serve together!
SO HOW CAN I HOST A COMMUNITY GROUP?
Gracepoint Church has people who attend from the areas of Basehor, Edwardsville, Bonner Springs, Shawnee, De Soto, Turner, and Olathe. We are currently looking for people who are interested in hosting a Community Group in their area. We'd like to start new groups this Fall 2017 as our church is expanding.
A CG host would be willing to open up there home about once a month for a gathering of people. If you are interested, please contact Pastor Justin as firstname.lastname@example.org, or the office administrator, Jessica Dupriest at email@example.com.
