We grow best as disciples together. Here are groups to help you grow.
B3 Groups: Belong to a family. Become more like Jesus Together. Bless your neighbors and community.
A B3 Group is an extended family of 20-40 servants on mission dedicated to following Jesus Christ and helping people become and grow as his disciples.
These groups meet regularly in a shared rhythm of life. B3 Groups are highly invitational, reproducible, and simple with the goal of multiplying and creating new communities for disciple making.
What do B3 Groups Do?
Gatherings: At Gatherings, people meet in someone’s home for a shared meal, a time of sharing thanksgiving, worship, a devotion and a time of prayer. They typically last 1.5 hours.
Blessing: B3 groups each have a particular missional focus that they commit to together. Each month they serve there.
Celebrations: Basically, a party. Christians have plenty of reasons to celebrate. This is a great chance to invite friends and build relationships.
