"The purpose of Community Groups is to create a community where Jesus Christ is experienced and mutual ministry is enjoyed."
Therefore, Community Groups are intended to be the primary “church” experience for all who are a part of Redeemer. “Church” is not a building or an organization or a 1-hr event on Sunday morning. It is a people who belong to one another — comforting, encouraging, and caring for one another, bearing one another’s burdens, teaching one another, confessing sins to one another, honoring and devoting themselves to one another. Community Groups, therefore, are not one of the many programs Redeemer offers, but the main way we accomplish evangelism, assimilation, discipleship, pastoral care, mission and mercy.
COMMUNITY GROUPS DURING COVID-19
Staying connected in community has never been more important. While our groups will not meet in person for the time being, we are taking our groups online.
Through the use of online technology (Zoom, FaceTime, etc.), our groups are still able to meet together. Although every group will look a little different, we will all continue to share life updates, support one another, dig deeper into the weekly sermons and Bible passages, and pray together.
