At Eastside Community Church, community is (literally) our middle name. We would love to get you involved in Christ-centered community here! Fill out our Community Group sign-up form below if you'd like to get connected to a group.
COMMUNITY IN HOMES
Our Community Groups help us practically fulfill the “one anothers” of the NT by belonging to a small, intergenerational, Christ-centered, evangelistic, disciple-making community. Our vision comes from Acts 2:42-47 where the early church gathered in homes to share meals, pray, worship, study the word, and hold each other accountable to make disciples and spread the gospel. Our weekly gatherings include:
- Sharing a meal (usually a potluck)
- Studying the Bible (usually the passage from Sunday)
- Praying and worshiping (usually including singing)
COMMUNITY ON MISSION
The Community Group gathering is meant to cultivate awe for God, fellowship with each other, and a love for those outside the church (Acts 2:42-47). We don't merely gather for ourselves, but also for the sake of others. So our Community Groups are responsible for serving the low-income housing communities in East Austin, to be the hands and feet of Jesus and share God's love in a practical and tangible way to our neighbors (click here for an example of how one of our Community Groups did this). Through this, we hope that more and more men, women, and children in our city might come to experience the life-changing reality of Christ and embrace him as Lord.
