And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
...and day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts
Acts 2:42, 46
Community groups exist so that we can get together with friends from GHBC and talk about what Jesus is doing in our lives, pray for one another, encourage one another, and just hang out!
Sessions are offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Group members range from single young adults, married with young children, empty nesters, retirees and grandparents. Whatever generation or stage of life you find yourself, you'll fit right in!
Groups provide a wonderful time of fellowship as well. We often have a friendly competition going about the cuisine we will be serving each week. Breakfast for dinner? You'll fit right in! Everyone contributes and it's a wonderful evening of sharing.
Due to COVID we are leaving it up to individual groups as to how they want to meet. Meetings can be in person in someone’s home or digitally via Zoom.

This Fall our Community Groups will be reading Disappearing Church: From Cultural Relevance to Gospel Resilience, by Mark Sayers.
The book will help us sort through questions like, Why does the church look so much like the world? Why are so many of my friends leaving the faith? How can we get back to our roots? Weaving together art, history, and theology, the book reminds us that real growth happens when the church embraces its countercultural witness, not when it blends in. It’s like Jesus said long ago, “If the salt loses its saltiness, it is no longer good for anything…"
