Community Groups

Community Groups are basic Christian communities. Believing that nurture and outreach are activities best carried out within the context of community, Community Groups are designed to provide that avenue for the development of community at Emmanuel. Theyare gatherings of approximately 4-12 people meeting in individual’s homes and apartments throughout the city during the week. In Community Groups, people come to know God and to experience his presence, community is developed and fostered, and people are nurtured, equipped and released for God’s work in the world. They provide an opportunity for intimacy, mutual support, practical love and service, learning about the Christian faith, prayer, and sharing of what we see God doing in our midst. They are led by trained lay-leaders from the congregation who are given on-going support. Contact Young Lee to learn more or to join a Community Group!

For the Fall, we will be starting a sermon series through the book, “A Loving Life” by Paul Miller (author of “A Praying Life”), which looks at the Book of Ruth. Here's an outline for our study.
