We don’t think that church is merely an event to attend, a set of beliefs, or an exclusive club that pulls us out of the normal flow of life. It’s possible to be so busy with “church stuff” that we can’t be present where we are. That’s why we don’t overly program. Our heart is to be equipped to engage life right where God has placed each of us. We are learning how to be a community shaped more and more into disciples of Jesus, joining God in His mission in His world by investing who we are.
THIS IS THE PRIMARY WAY TO JOIN IN THAT PROCESS WITH US
We gather in homes throughout our area, learning to live the “life of the kingdom of the heavens” that’s available to us right now through Jesus. Community Groups are collections of around 8-14 people who are learning to live the best possible life – a life as a family of disciples joining God in His mission to redeem, reclaim, and restore the world.
We launch new Community Groups several times a year through Community Group Launch – a three week introduction to the patterns of life that we’re orienting ourselves around: Family, Discipleship, and Mission. It’s a great place to find connection beyond a weekend, get to know the Redemption community a bit deeper, and begin learning how to live life as a FAMILY of DISCIPLES on MISSION.
If you’re interested in joining a Community Group, please fill out our Community Group Interest form and we’ll get you plugged into the next Launch!
*In this time, while we are not able to meet in person, our groups are meeting online throughout the week, as well as after the service each Sunday. If you are not in a group, but would like to join one of these Sunday discussion groups to dive deeper into the message, you can jump in with the Zoom link below.
We don’t just care for our own needs, but believe that God has given us specific resources, skills, and abilities to invest into the broken areas of our world. Since we can’t meet all of those needs, we are learning how to walk well with partners in order to see full life restored.
We participate in mission in the context of community groups, which have freedom to form their own initiatives or work with our key partners:
