We are better together! Small Groups meet weekly to encourage, study, pray, and fellowship together off-campus at Home Groups and on-campus for Discipleship Classes. They are not perfect, but are a beautiful mess just like life. They won’t fix all your problems, but they will provide you with a biblical community that will drive us toward a deeper level of faith, love, and discipleship.
MISSION FOR GROUPS
Groups that produce fully devoted followers of Christ
Fully devoted to...
1) God’s Word (Acts 2:42a, 46)
2) Biblical Community (Acts 2:42b, 45-46)
3) Worship (Acts 2:42c, 46-47)
4) Prayer (Acts 2:42d)
5) Multiplication (Acts 2:47b)
If we as church will seek to be full devoted followers God can do a work in and through us. We will then begin to nurture and experience biblical community like Acts 2, where we take care of one another’s needs and do life together. Most importantly, God will show up and do a work in our church and God will add to his church those being saved. If only we would be fully devoted followers, God would show up, grow us, and save lives. Our goal for discipleship is to seek to imitate this Acts 2 church by being fully devoted followers of Christ.
Church doesn’t just happen on Sundays or in a church building, it can happen outside the walls of the church. Home Groups meet throughout the community during the week for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, and study. Click here for HOME GROUP MAP.
Discipleship Classes meet on the church campus on Sunday mornings for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, sharing stories and the studying of God’s Word during each of the worship gathering services. This provides the easy access of dropping of your kids and attending worship as well. We also have some Discipleship Classes that meet during the week.
We also offer support groups to minister to those in need of healing, equipping, wisdom, restoration, and encouragement.
WHY SMALL GROUPS
In many ways a small group community defines the body of Christ far and above our Sunday services. Acts 2:42-47 is a biblical model that were devoted to biblical community we as a church want to model.
This is a biblical community that transforms lives and furthered God's kingdom. That's what we want our church and small groups to be all about. Biblical community doesn't happen in the pews, but in groups. Groups are a great opportunity to build community, have fellowship, grow as disciples of Christ, be rooted in God's word, become intentionally invested in others' lives.
Sunday discipleship classes have been established at our church for many years now and didn't want to interfere with what God has done and is doing within those groups, but we wanted to model the New Testament church with meeting in the homes as well. The early church met in the church and in homes (Acts 5:42), which helped build community inside and outside the church walls. So we offer two different tracts of small groups for discipleship at Rollingbrook Fellowship. We have Discipleship classes that meet on-campus primarily on Sundays and Home Groups that meet off-campus during the week. Go to our Group Finder to find the right group for you.
What is the difference between Home Groups and Discipleship classes?
Home Groups meet in homes off-campus during the week and Discipleship classes meet on-campus on Sundays.
