"… there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."  - 1 Corinthians 12:25-27

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community groups are small gatherings of people that meet in homes, at restaurants and in the church. Each group has a slightly different feel but all are committed to growing in community, studying the bible, and praying together (Acts 2:42). The time is typically relaxed and provides not only an avenue to connect to others in the church but also a great opportunity to grow.

Several “open groups” are listed below. We invite you to drop in sometime and check it out. Other opportunities are also available and new groups will be starting this fall. If you’re interested in joining a community group contact Pastor Matt at matt@vrieslandchurch.org
