Intentional, authenic relationships with other disciples are vital to your spiritual growth, understanding what it means to be part of God’s family, and engaging in Jesus’ mission. Community Groups are at the heart of how we express and experience this community at E-Free.
Community Groups help us express and experience all three areas of our new idenity in Christ:
Meet weekly with 2-3 others from your group to share how you are hearing and obeying God’s voice, to remind each other of the gospel, and to pray together for people in whose lives the Holy Spirit has placed you.
Meet approximately monthly with everyone in the group to share a meal together and how God has been present and active in your life.
Engage in authentic, intentional relationships with the lost and broken in neutral and natural spaces with the hope of introducing them to Jesus.
How this is lived out will look different from group to group. However, the goal of each group is the same: to create the most conducive environment for discipleship and mission.
Join a Community Group
If you are currently in a small group or life group, you are already in a Community Group! Ask your leader how you can help create intentional relational environments for discipleship and mission.
If you are not already in a group, the best way to join is by taking our “On Ramp.”
Whether you want to get connected to a Community Group or just learn more about E-Free, the On-Ramp is a great place to get started. In this class, we will explore:
• the Gospel
• our mission
• our values
• our practices
Our goal is that you would connect with other people who attend E-Free and our mission, and that your group would continue to meet as a Community Group once the class is over.
Each class lasts for 4 weeks (approximately 1.5 hours/week) and meets at the church.
Offered in October, January, and after Easter. More classes may be added depending on interest.
Next On-Ramp starts Thursday, October 5 at 7 pm at the church. Sign up below or for more information, contact Don.
“Simply put, your progress spiritually hinges on your willingness
to enter into structured relationships with other believers.”
