Community Groups

What is a Community Group?
Community Groups are where people meet regularly for Bible study, prayer, friendship, and support.

They are a safe place to share your life, laugh, and discuss tough questions.


Who should be in a Community Group?
We believe all members of Redeemer Church should be in a Community Group (men and women) or Small Group (men's or women's) because that is where you connect with others and Scripture urges us to gather with other believers. You don't have to be a member of Redeemer Church to be in a Commmunity/Small Group.

If you're interested in joining a Community or Small Group, fill out the form below and someone will contact you to find a group that is perfect for you.

Contact the church office if you have questions.
