Community Groups

We believe that the church exists beyond the four walls of a church building. During the Fall and Spring months, our Community Groups meet on a weekly basis in neighborhoods throughout Hampton Roads for dinner and discussion.

Because our church is pursuing a multi-generational and multi-cultural expression of God's kingdom, our groups are based on geography and relationships. We're a family and we want everyone to feel welcome on Sundays and in our Community Groups.

What is a Community group?

At Anchor, community groups are the place where discipleship and care takes place. It is where we encourage one another to be worshipers of our Lord. It is where the body becomes the body, loving, caring and challenging one another. As well, it is within community that we engage culture and incarnate Jesus in every corner and pocket of our city.

Why should i join a
community group?

It is a place where we encourage and challenge one another in our journey to know Jesus in deeper and more personal ways. In Community Groups, people talk through life issues, eat together, pray together, laugh together, struggle together, and serve others as we are transformed by the grace of God in our lives.

What To expect at a community group?

Each Group is unique as the group reflects the neighborhood in which it exists. However, you can expect a weekly gathering that involves food, conversation, prayer, discussion for applying the Bible to practical living, and service in the neighborhood. Community groups are much more than a Bible study; they are a community, a place where we can laugh, cry, work and play together for the glory of Jesus.
