Imperfectly living beyond us together
No one grows without community.
Community groups provide a place and time where we can feel safe, cared for, and free to develop our own unique relationship with God.
Community groups provide opportunities for prayer, bible study, fellowship, encouragement, and learning together about the infinite grace, mercy, justice, and kindness of God.
Community groups provide opportunities to serve one another when needs arise and to reach out to those in need in our city, nation, and world.

Vision for Community Groups
At Springcreek, we believe the spiritual life is meant to be lived in community.
WHY? Because God, the Holy Trinity, lives in perfect community.
WHY? Because God invites us to join in their community of perfect love.
The Great Commandment
“And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:28-31 ESV
Community groups are where we learn together how to intentionally fulfill this incredible and inspiring command.
Community groups allow a grace filled environment where we are safe to discover who God is and how we can love Him intimately.
We also learn who we really are, and whose we are. We mature and grow in our faith, our true selves, our gifts and abilities, and we hone our loving skills for our neighbor.
Community groups want to avoid judging, labeling, ridiculing, fixing, or controlling. They will foster a life in God’s grace, healing, and love; allowing the Holy Spirit to grow and mature each person in their own way and at their own speed.
Please be intentional about growing in your relationship with God and your neighbor.
