DNA Groups

Discipleship. Nurturing. Accountability.
Essential building blocks for our faith. 

THIS WEEK IN DNA GROUPS

*Registration for Winter DNA Groups is closed.* 

If you registered before the January 17 deadline, please stay tuned to your email for details about your group assignment. Groups will begin meeting during the week of January 31, 2021.

WHAT ARE DNA GROUPS?

Your walk with God is personal, but it's not individual. DNA Groups (Discipleship - Nurturing - Accountability) provide an encouraging space to wrestle with who Jesus is and what it means to follow him. God made us to be in community, so we need others to help us apply the gospel to our lives. DNA Groups are also a key way that our church ensures you are known and cared for.

If you were in a Community Group during a previous season, the format of DNA Groups differs in a few ways:

  1. The groups are smaller, because navigating a Zoom call with 12-15 people would limit engagement. 
  2. The format is different. As opposed to discussions based on the previous week's sermon, group meetings will vary -- some weeks will include a recorded teaching for the group to watch and discuss, and other weeks will include exercises to walk through. All of the content is designed to help us follow Jesus and renew our minds with the gospel.

For the winter 2021 season, groups of 5-7 people will come together for scripture reading, fellowship, and prayer, all via virtual video call.

WHAT DNA GROUPS ARE NOT?

While we hope--and certainly expect--you to form friendships with people in your group, DNA groups are not social clubs. We intentionally place everyone in groups where they'll interact with people who have different backgrounds. We believe these diverse perspectives help us get more out of our scripture reading and give us more opportunities to put our faith into action. The ultimate goal is for us all to grow in the way we follow Jesus.

WHEN/WHERE DO GROUPS MEET?

DNA Groups meet virtually.

Groups will start the week of January 31, 2021 and will have their final meetings during the week of March 28, 2021.

HOW DO I JOIN A GROUP?

The registration period for winter 2021 DNA Groups is closed.
