Community Groups

Sundays are essential, but not sufficient. 

Church isn’t a place you go, but a group of people covenanted to pursue Jesus together (in community).

Anchor’s Community Groups are the central way we live out this vision. Each week, we gather in homes across Hampton Roads to share meals together, laugh together, weep together, pray for one another, care for one another, engage our neighbors together, study our Bibles together, and talk about Jesus. A lot.
Regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, social status, history or background, we come together in the name of Jesus for the fame of Jesus and for the good of one another. We live in a busy and people-saturated city. Yet still, with all of these people, it’s still so easy to feel alone and anonymous. We invite you to do life with us in community. To know and be known–as we all seek to know Jesus and make Him known.

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.
