Community Group Misson Statement:
To provide a predictable environment where participants experience Authentic Community & Spiritual Growth.

Community Group Values
While prayer & discussion of curriculum are key elements of a Community Group, the driving force behind the group is the building of relationships.

Authenticity
The atmosphere of a Community Group should encourage openness and transparency among members.  This is an environment where people should feel free to be themselves.

Confidentiality

For authenticity to occur, members must be able to trust that issues discussed with a Community Group are not to be shared outside of the group.

Respect

Group members should never say anything that will embarrass their spouse or members of the group.

Availability
A primary responsibility of community is to prioritize for specific relationships.  This requires a willingness to be available to meet each other’s needs.

Multiplication

Group members recognize that one of the goals of their group is to start a new group within 12-18 months.  This allows others to experience the Community Group relationship.
