ChristCare groups

ChristCare Groups provide a haven of caring community for people who might feel isolated in our impersonal world. ChristCare Group members listen, pray together, and share one another’s challenges and victories. They notice needs for care-both in the group and beyond it-and express God’s caring love for one another. The four ChristCare Group activities are listed below.

Activities Community Building & Care

A ChristCare Group is a safe, nurturing place where group members can share their joys and sorrows, support one another in daily life, care for and be cared for, and encourage one another in their Christian walk.

Biblical Equipping

ChristCare Group members follow an 8-step cycle of hearing, discussing, reflecting upon, and living the Scriptures–not only when they are together as a group, but between group meetings. Biblical Equipping becomes life-transforming as group members apply God’s truths to their daily lives.

Prayer & Worship

ChristCare Group members grow in their ability to pray and worship God–both individually and as a group. Each group explores ways to pray and worship together that meet the needs and comfort levels of its members.

Missional Service

After experiencing God’s love in the group, ChristCare Group members find specific ways to reach out with God’s love to those outside the group. In doing so, ChristCare Groups typically meet a variety of needs in a congregation and community.
