Community Groups
Greg Niles, Community Group Coordinator
     
     I am a native New Englander and was born and raised in Westerly, RI. I presently live in Ledyard, CT with my beautiful bride, Claire. I spent 20 years in Manufacturing and the last 18 as an IT Systems Engineer. Working with computers is a joy to me and keeps my problem solving skills keen, but my real joy in life is serving the great God of the Universe. After spending several years of Bible study and attending different churches in different capacities, Claire and I came to Gallup Hill. Here I have found great joy in serving and praising our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
 

 I am currently serving as the Community Group Coordinator which I have a real passion for. The Community Group is how the early Christian Church flourished, expanded, changed lives, and changed communities. That’s what God wants until Christ comes again! Our goal with these groups is for us all to connect and care for one another. Through fellowship we develop more intimate relationships where we truly care and confide in one another. This will produce a change in us. We will see the love of God and Christ working in our lives and each other, which will help us in our walk with Christ daily. We also strive to work toward cultivating the spirit of mission work which focuses not on ourselves but on others. Sharing the Gospel with anyone and helping them to drink of life’s water free. (Rev. 21:6)      

      So, saturate yourselves in God’s word and fellowship with his people! As Romans 12:2 says: “Do not be
conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern
what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
 
    So come visit us at Gallup Hill and fine out where our groups meet and join us in fellowship, and let the love of Christ flourish in your lives.  Amen!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Life is full of challenges; loved ones get sick and pass away, children rebel and make bad decisions, we make bad decisions, work is stressful and unrewarding, we battle  the same old temptations and struggles day after day with little sign of relief.  Life can be hard.  And to make matters worse, we here in the West (United States and Wester Europe) are the most isolated people in history.  Job mobility takes us far from home.  Our technology addiction simultaneously relives a little of the isolation and makes it worse.  
 
Life is full of challenges and we are not meant to face them alone.  We need real community with other people of like faith.  Starting in Spring 2016 Gallup Hill is beginning our new Community Group ministry.  Each week small  groups of the Gallup Hill church family and others will gather in one another's homes to get to know one another better and deepen friendships.  During these gathers we will share snacks, stories about our week, and talk about the pastor's sermon from the previous Sunday to see how it affects our everyday life.  
 
Join us and relieve the loneliness you feel inside!
