Community Groups

 

At Village we believe establishing a relational home is best achieved through both larger and smaller group relational contexts. Community Groups are larger, lifestyle specific groups that allow people to plug into a wider network of relationships at Village. Some groups are organized around studies or discussion, others around activities. But all are meant to promote friendship and connection.

Young Adults Group

Day/Time: Sundays, 6:45-8:30 pm (following 5:00 pm service) 
Location: The Modular Trailer (in the north parking lot)
For more info: Please contact Matt Adams or Leslie Adams

Led by Matt and Leslie Adams, the YAG welcomes both college and young adults age 18-30, whether single, dating, or married. We typically enjoy dinner together, engage in stimulating discussion around God’s Word and stuff we’re all dealing with in life, and just hang out.

The Well (Women)

Day/Time: Tuesdays, 9:00-11:30 am (Sept-May)
Location: The Columbia Rooms
For more info: Please contact Jeanette Robinson or Sheri Moxley

An in-depth inductive study of God’s Word for women of all ages and cultures. Weekly meetings include a time of food and fellowship, worship, large group instruction, small group discussion, sharing, and prayer. Small groups are available for both English and Korean speakers. Childcare is available.

For the Sept. 2018-May 2019 season, we are studying the Apostle Paul’s letters to the Philippians and Colossians and how they help us understand a life of joy and fullness that comes through knowing Jesus Christ.  Sign ups are now closed for the year.

The Mountain (Men)

Day/Time: Mondays, 7:15-8:45 pm
Location: The Columbia Rooms
For more info:   Please contact Terry Larrea

This is a large group Bible study for men, providing a time for brothers in Christ to connect and talk about Jesus. Our desire is that every man live out God’s purpose “in Christ” and on mission. Weekly meetings include both large group instruction and small group discussion and prayer.

Winter Trek runs Jan. 28- Feb. 25! This trek is designed so that men can “parachute in” for 5 sessions, to hear and think about a handful of interesting topics using academic video and debate formats. Discussion and questions will be encouraged. We will look at 4 major themes in God’s Story: Eternal Life, Faith and Covenant, WorldViews and Ethics, Morals and Doing Good. Invite a friend!

AIM (Authentic Incarnational Men)

Day/Time: Select Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 pm 
Location: Columbia A
For more info: Please contact Tim Evans

For many men, our genuine desire to be godly can be quickly eroded by various aspects of life. Rather than thriving in Christ, we’re tired and barely surviving, not liking who we see in the mirror. How do we embrace our manhood the way God intended it to be? The goal of AIM is to be Authentic with each other and ourselves, Incarnational in seeking to live out the gospel together and have Jesus in every part of our lives, and true Men, discovering what biblical manhood looks like. We will have both large group and small group meetings, building friendships by doing life together.

As of May 2019, our monthly large group meetings are on the 2nd Thursday of each month. And then for those interested, we have supplementary small groups meeting as well. (Come out to a large group meeting and we’ll get you plugged into one of our small groups. Or just contact Tim Evans for help.)
