Life is better shared.
The abundant life Jesus longs for us to experience encompasses more than just a few hours on a Sunday morning. Jesus taught that following him is not an event, it’s a lifestyle, it’s who we are—every day of the week. We believe that a really good way we can help each other to make following Jesus a lifestyle, and to intentionally center our lives around him, is by joining a community group.
Community groups consist of 6—14 people that meet together regularly in each other’s homes to enjoy friendships and to grow in their Christian faith.
Community groups are open to adults of any age, marital status, ethnicity and socio-economic background. We believe a diverse blend of experiences and perspectives is extremely helpful as we learn from and care for eachother.
Chelten community groups are to designed be safe places for people at any stage of their Christian walk. None of us have “arrived.” Our goal is the journey, not the destination. Group members work hard to establish trust as they share life with each other. They do this by holding things confidential, which leads to authentic relationships.
Chelten community groups base their discussions on the Bible. Whether our groups are discussing last Sunday’s message, studying Scripture or working through a specific topic, the Bible is always their foundation. God’s word changes people.
Chelten community groups reflect Chelten’s mission. we want the life rhythm of our community groups to be a balanced pulse of worship, nurture and outreach. We want to make much of Jesus together, help each other grow in our faith and look for ways to share Jesus with people who don’t yet know him.
