Community Groups

Community Groups

Community groups are places of care and community where we learn more about living the Christian life together. Each group is unique and has its own "personality," and yet all groups are focused on growing in relationship with God and with each other. Groups meet on different nights in various neighborhoods around the city, and include time for fellowship, study and reflection, and prayer together.

Vulnerability is the core of shame, fear and struggle for worthiness.

But it's also the birthplace of creativity, of belonging and love.

—Brené Brown

They are gatherings of six to twelve people who meet regularly to do things like discuss the Bible or other important topics, worship, pray, serve, and fellowship.

People often ask if Community Groups are only for Christians. The answer is that Community Groups are for anyone. Groups do focus on cultivating our life with God and each other, and we encourage anyone interested in learning more about God and life as part of a community to attend. In fact, we think that participating in a Community Group is one of the best ways to investigate Christianity. Groups will give you an intimate opportunity to see the strengths and weaknesses of Christian community, ask questions, and hear from Christians about what they believe.

This year, we are not having a formal registration process. If you would like to join a community group, you can use the contact information below to do so.

If you have questions, or if you have a desire to host or hep lead a community group, feel free to e-mail our Director of Community Formation, Debbie Tacke (debbie@graceseattle.org).
