Community Groups

At Calvary Canyon Hills we’re heavily influenced by the very first church, which was in Jerusalem. The Pastors of that church were the same men who followed Jesus for 3 1/2 years.

In Acts 2:46 it says of that church, “Day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts.

When it came to gathering together as a church they prioritized 2 things:

  1. They gathered corporately on Sunday mornings as a large group.
  2. They split up into smaller groups and gathered together in the mid-week.

Both the large Sunday gathering and the smaller mid-week gathering were both equally prioritized! That church was simply doing what Jesus modeled for them to do. Therefore, we believe it’s important for believers to gather in smaller groups in order to connect with other like-minded Christians.

Our Groups are small gatherings that usually meet in homes for the purpose of community, friendship, edification and Bible study. Each group is led by someone who serves as the spiritual leader to the group members. A typical home group fulfills Acts 2:42, with the first hour consisting of food & fellowship, and the second hour consisting of study & prayer.

Feel free to call and connect with any of our leaders or hosts!
