A Community Group is a Family on Mission.
Better yet, it's a family of Jesus followers on mission with God, declaring and demonstrating the Gospel to a specific pocket of people.
It is the vehicle in which we live on mission together as a church. These mission-focused groups consist of 6-20 Christians who organize around a geographic location, cause, or commonality in the Silver Spring area in order to lovingly pursue, serve, and bless a specific pocket of people with the Good News of Jesus.
Our hope is to create a foretaste of heaven among people who are far from God, but we can only do this by intentionally "moving toward" people. Just as Jesus moved toward people He wanted to love, we do the same. Within and around these Community Groups we place great value on building friendships, celebration, and service so that people will get a tangible sense of who God is as we explicitly proclaim the gospel.
