Being in a group is one of the best ways 
to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.


God didn't intend for you to do life alone and meaningful relationships can be hard to find.  Community Groups exist to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

At Community Church, people gather regularly during the week in homes throughout Central Michigan. Meeting in groups is our way of making our church feel as close and connected as a group of friends meeting up in a living room. So, how do you get connected? There are groups for men, women, singles, married couples and more, so find your fit at a group meeting near you.

Community Groups

Community Groups are one of the best ways to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  God doesn’t want any of us to be left to walk through life alone – we need each other to encourage, support and challenge one another.

What is a Community Group?

A Community Group is a group of people who get together regularly to pursue spiritual growth. No church membership is required and groups are open to anyone with a desire to find out more about God and His plan for your life.

What kind of Community Groups are there?

Many of our community groups are focused around a shared mission. There are some groups just for women, some just for men, some for couples and singles and made up of people of all ages. All of our groups are engaged with the church teaching series, discussing Sunday’s sermon message together using the notes portion of the Sunday service bulletin, also available online here.

How do I sign up for a Group?

Traditional Alpha course 

What Happens At Alpha?

Each week starts with a meal and relaxed conversation. Following the meal is a short talk exploring various aspects of the Christian faith. In small groups, guests can ask any question and discuss opinions freely with others.

Who Is Alpha For?

Whether you grew up Christian or never set foot in church, whether you are eighteen or eighty, whether you raise kids or raise cattle… Alpha is for everyone. Alpha is an opportunity to explore life’s big questions. Alpha is for anyone. People attend from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints. They come to investigate questions about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes life.  Everyone is welcome.

What will it cost?

There is no charge for attending the Alpha course. A $5 donation for the meal is requested to help offset the meal costs. Childcare is $5 with $12 max per family. Scholarships are available.

Financial Peace University

Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University is a biblically based curriculum that teaches people how to handle money God’s ways. The leaders make discussing potentially stressful issues like finances and budgets fun and engaging.

Freedom Group

Freedom is about being released to love and serve Jesus wholeheartedly. Put simply, the Freedom Group is about becoming more like Jesus and reflecting His love and power to everyone around us. Freedom is not just about changing behavior, but about letting God change our very being. The goal of this group is not to learn new information that we can store on a dusty bookshelf.
