Community Groups

JICF is a church that pastors and shepherds through community groups. We believe that community groups are one of the most important and effective aspects of church life. Jesus said He is amongst believers who gather together. Sit under His teaching though the word. Fellowship, serve and pray with one another, then witness real life change. Our desire is to be a church where the majority of our body is blessed by this ministry. The primary purpose of community groups is to provide significant relationships through which group members:

 

Provide mutual care, support, love, and encouragement

Experience Bible study, prayer and discipleship

Develop patterns of spiritual accountability

Further their personal spiritual growth

Engage in outreach and service

Establish clearly where their giftings lie, and as a group, support and encourage each other to use those gifts to build a unique ministry

Experience a constantly exciting and challenging place where the “plans I have for you” (Jer. 29:11) are fully realized

We invite those who attend JICF to be fully involved in a community group.
