Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping neighbors and friends throughout our county in the name of Jesus.
This has always been at the heart of Redwood Covenant, and now we are about to begin an exciting new phase of ministry. It’s taken a lot of time, energy and dedication by many to get here, and now Community Groups are about to begin.
What’s a Community Group?
• Size of an extended family. With 20-50 people, Community Groups will be small enough to care but large enough to dare.
• UP/IN/OUT. Community Groups will follow the three dimensions of Jesus’ life: UPward dimension of life with the Father, INward dimension of life with the Body of Christ together, OUTward dimension of fully stepping into a broken world.
• Fellowship with a Focus. In a Community Group, people will enjoy a meal, connect with others, connect with God, and either plan or do a mission adventure. Many of our Community Groups will be kid-friendly! And yes, it will be fun!
• Mission vision. Each Community Group will have a vision to extend God’s love in practical ways to a specific group. There will be Community Groups focused on the hungry, the homeless, families, and much more.
I am very excited to say that fourteen Community Groups will begin in October at Redwood Covenant. Groups will be introduced during worship each Sunday in September. Sign ups begin this Sunday. Please be in prayer about which group will work for you!
God is moving! And you are invited to catch the movement!
