Community Groups are formed around one common mission to make new disciples of Jesus Christ locally and grow as disciples together.

About Community Groups (CGs)

  • Care – CGs are the “frontline” of care in Metanoia. They are safe environments to “rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15).
  • Mission – The mission of all CGs is to make new disciples of Jesus Christ locally.
  • Worship – Worship in CGs is facilitated with a weekly CG Lesson produced by Metanoia that includes Bible application, sermon application, and prayer prompts.

Community Groups are co-led. One leader is the CG’s primary advocate for care within the CG while the other leader is the primary advocate for the CG’s mission. Either leader can facilitate the worship aspect of their CG as well. CG Lessons can occasionally be taught by non-leaders who are gifted in teaching. CG Leaders and anyone who teaches must be Metanoia Partners.
