Join a Small Group

Grow Spiritually (CHRIST). Connect Relationally (COMMUNITY). Witness Boldly (CAUSE).

At New Community, we remind folks that we are not a church with small groups but a church of small groups. Why? Small groups are vital for spiritual formation! That is why for years we have encouraged and prioritized biblical community as the primary way in which we learn to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. God uses relationships to bring healing, support, and encouragement.

Although we know that God created us for biblical community, finding and building Christ-centered, life-transforming relationships can be very challenging! That is why we are passionate about making the process of finding biblical community easy and accessible for everyone. This is where small groups come in. Small groups play a vital role in our mission of passionately loving CHRIST, engaging in authentic COMMUNITY, and radically advancing His CAUSE.

Grow Spiritually

Regardless of the type of small group, the purpose of each group is to create a safe place where we can all grow to love Jesus and become more like Him. We want to model His character, his mindset, and be equipped and prepared for our God-given mission to a broken world.

Connect Relationally

We believe that engaging in authentic community happens best around shared mission and calling, so we have a variety of groups– Bible studies, moms groups, prayer groups, mens groups, book studies, and more.

Witness Boldly

Jesus came with a mission to reconcile us to God, us to one another, and to restore creation to its intended state of Shalom. He then called us to continue that mission! Small groups are not meant to be insular communities, but missional communities! We do that as we radically advance His cause by bringing the life-giving hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally.
