The vision of our Community Groups is to practice and experience genuine, sincere community, where people demonstrate love, practice care, engage in dialogue, share in critique, and embrace serving together. It is our vision to see people from all walks of life gathering and fostering Gospel-centered community through these “extensions” of our church.

We believe that Community Groups are vital to one’s life and growth at Metro. If you would like to “plug into” the life of the church, Community Groups are an excellent starting point.

Fellowship Through Community Groups

Sunday Worship Services at Metro Church consist of the visible “body” of the church. However, worship services do not constitute the entirety of the church’s ministry; the “heart” of the church can be found when genuine community is fostered through Community Groups. Joining any new community can be daunting if you’re “new”, but one begins to feel “connected” and “plugged in” by adopting the values of the church through fellowship and partnership. Community Groups are directly applicable channels within which we practice and demonstrate the Gospel.

Each Community Group is comprised of 6-12 people usually within a geographical region. Community Groups meet for 2 hours on the average (official times last no more than 2 hours) in two “4+2” cycles quarterly, that is, they usually meet for 4 weeks consecutively, followed by a 2-week break.

Community Groups are led by members of the church, who receive training and regular support from the church staff and leadership. Metro desires to foster a healthy co-ed, diverse, non-threatening Community Group environment—reflecting the growing diversity of our fellowship. Just as our children grow in faith through the Word and in fellowship, our Community Groups serve as extensions of Gospel application in the life of our church.
