At New Community, our identity is the catalyst for mission. We are a reconciled and reconciling people (2 Corinthians 5:18). Our identity is lived out through three values: Grace and Truth, Unity, and The Kingdom.
We offer two different weekly Bible study models that are practical expressions of living out our identities in God as we pursue our three values.
- Fall Season (Early September – December)
- Spring Season (Mid-January – June)
Community Group Bible Study
- We gather throughout the week in highly-committed groups of 8-12 in people’s homes to study the Bible, eat together, pray together and for each other, and provide a safe and supportive space.
- Bible Study Model: leader facilitates discussion, and members are expected to actively participate and share their thought
- Commitment level: high; attend at least 3 meetings per month per season (see calendar above)
- Meeting dates: various week nights, depending on group
