Community Groups are the heart of what we do here.
Community is where we connect together, where we grow together, where we serve together. Our weekend gatherings are fantastic, equipping times where you will hear the word and worship together—and our Community groups are a vital next step for everyone who calls NewHeart their home.
WHAT IS A GROUP?
A Community group is an intentional gathering of people who meet regularly. Since God designed us for relationships, we believe it is through the connections made in smaller groups that God will help us grow. People form groups around what matters in their lives. This can look like connecting with people who share similar interests or are at the same stage in life as well as finding people who have experience in an area in which you want to grow. Community groups are also where we pray for each other and support each other. Community groups meet once a week in locations all around our city, and with many groups to choose from, we believe there is a group out there for you.
Our groups are “free market.”
“Free market” simply means group leaders are free to use their gifts and interests to determine when and where their group meets and what they meet about. From soccer groups and lunch groups to Bible studies and coffee meet-ups, our groups are as varied as we are.
We have three semesters every year.
Life flows in seasons, and we want to make it easy for you to be in the right small group for you in each season. This is why we have new groups that start and stop three times a year in what we refer to as “semesters.” Our group semesters:
- Winter/spring (February-May—16 weeks)
- Summer (June-July—9 weeks)
- Fall (August-November— 16 weeks)
