Community Groups

the heart of the church

The heart of our church is a network of small groups, in which face-to-face friendships, encouragement and mutual ministry develop. These groups are led by members and meet in homes throughout Silicon Valley. They are also the primary place of prayer for the church and God's kingdom.

community groups

Grace Presbyterian Church is based on Community Groups because we are committed to several important biblical values:

1. We believe that the Gospel creates a new community which loves and serves each other
2. We believe that the Gospel alone changes people's lives
3. We believe that this change occurs as Christians share their lives with one another in mutual encouragement

Community Groups are small communities of six to twelve people meeting in homes throughout Silicon Valley and the South Bay during the week. They are primary Christian communities, the first place Christians turn to for applying the gospel to their lives. All groups are led by trained leaders from the congregation who receive continued oversight and support. These groups are geographical rather than topical, allowing a diversity to emerge in each group, allowing members to benefit from the varied experiences of their fellow believers. Most groups remain open to visitors and new participants.

Each group expects to weave people together in Christ, enabling lives to be transformed by the gospel through mutual ministry. People should see regular changes in their life as they draw closer to Christ and are remade in his image.While some churches may have small groups on the side, Grace Presbyterian Church is centered around our Community Groups. They are the core of the church. Therefore, belonging to a Community Group is the way to truly belong to our church.
