Community Groups are the heart and soul of small groups here at 4Pointes. The primary emphasis of these groups, as it stated in its name, is “community.” It is said that without significant relationships, people will not grow. People may initially be attracted to a group because there exists a common bond (location, life stage, or study), but people only commit and find it to be their home if they find in these groups significant relationships. Therefore, Community Groups exist to provide a space where significant relationships and community can be forged and in so doing cultivate a place where spiritual formation takes place.
Practically speaking, these Community Groups will gather based on one of two criteria: Location or Life Stage. In other words, Community Groups will be formed around either geographical location or particular life stages (i.e. Young Adults, Newlyweds, Young Family, etc.). So whether you want to join a Community Group that is located near where you live or want to join a Community Group that has people who are in a similar life stage as you, the choice is yours.
All Community Groups will discuss questions and ideas that will further dive into the previous Sunday’s message. All Community Groups will meet for a season at a time, which lasts between 8 to 10 weeks in length.
