Commitment Accountability Relationships Evangelism
Taking our example from Acts 2:42, Covenant Community Church has incorporated "Care Groups" since the beginning of our fellowship in 1976. These "in-home" small groups provide aid in spiritual development through prayer, fellowship, and building strong personal relationships with other members.
WHAT HAPPENS AT CARE GROUP MEETINGS?
It is a time of informal worship, fellowship and interaction. Along with singing and sharing, the leader may teach a short Bible lesson or lead a discussion on a variety of topics. The Elders and Care Group Leaders who oversee these meetings are dedicated to serving the group and meeting individual needs. Often, Care Groups include a time of prayer as well as a time of fellowship with light refreshments provided.
WHO ATTENDS THESE MEETINGS?
Each group is made up of married couples, singles, and teenagers. While most are members or regular attendees of Covenant Community Church, these meetings provide wonderful opportunities to invite neighbors, relatives, or interested friends.
SHOULD I GET INVOLVED IN A CARE GROUP?
In Acts 20:20, many years after the birth of the early church, we find Paul continuing to "teach publicly and from house to house." This example reveals the importance Paul the Apostle placed on this type of personalized ministry. We feel the importance is just as valid today. People need to know that someone cares!
Many practical needs such as providing meals, sharing work projects, organizing wedding and baby showers are all met through Care Group participation. We encourage you to become active in the Care Group nearest you
