Gathering on Sunday morning is one vital part of how we live, where we come together to worship God through things like song, prayer, preaching, & communion. But we worship God every day of the week, too. We do this primarily through Gospel Communities, which are small groups throughout Bloomington/Normal who pursue God's mission, encourage each other, push each other toward holiness, and live everyday life together as we learn how the gospel seeps into every aspect of life.
Gospel Communities regularly meet together once a week to spur one another on, eat together, and to live on mission together. Please feel free to visit any of our Gospel Communities, or contact us if you have questions or need help finding one.
Our GC meets weekly on Sunday afternoons, typically at the Rynerson's house at 3:30. We have lots of young kids and young parents. In this season of our GC we are focused on building community with each other into the rhythms of our lives, starting with the formation of DNA groups that meet throughout the week. We have individuals in our group involved in many different ministry opportunities, and we are learning to invite each other into these parts of our lives. Contact Caleb Beaty: 309-212-7284
