Community Groups

Why you should invest in a Wellington Community Group…

Our Community Groups exist to give our Wellington family an opportunity to experience the wonderful reality of Christian fellowship and actually practice the “one-anothers” outside of our Sunday morning corporate worship service. Too often people find themselves in various churches for extended periods of time without being connected. This is tragic for the Christian, because it means they are not being ministered to, but it also means they probably are not serving the body either. Community Groups is the primary method we use to integrate people into Wellington, because we want you to become a vital part of our body. Moreover, we want to see those who the Lord brings to us not only come to saving faith in Jesus, but also grow into greater conformity to Him. Being intimately involved in the church is a major part of how the Lord brings us through that conformity process. Therefore, we have Community Groups because we want you to be involved in one another’s lives, in order to, become more like Christ.

What is a Wellington Community Group…

A Community Group is simply a smaller group of people from our church with a designated leader who practice the “one-anothers” among each other. Some groups focus on deeper Bible study, while others focus on serving alongside each other; still others have a strong emphasis on prayer. Ultimately, whatever the focus is, each group should be building up those who attend in the Lord through committed fellowship and the practice of the “one-anothers.”

When do Wellington Community Groups meet…

Some of our groups actually meet on Sunday, while others meet during the week. If you would like more specific information please stop by the Connect Table, see a pastor, or call the church office during normal business hours.
