View This Week’s Community Group Questions

As the Village Church grows larger, our focus on “growing smaller” becomes more important. We “grow small” by connecting and engaging people in our Community Groups.

Our Community Groups are the primary avenue through which we disciple and care for our people. Most Groups are made up of 8-12 men and women who meet weekly for fellowship and connection, Biblically-based discussion and a focused time of prayer.
