group life


If you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus, you need to have intentional relationships with people who have the same goal—and Community Group is the ideal place for that. In a Community Group, eight to twelve adults meet regularly for a year or more to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. You’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you discover in the Bible, as you encourage others to do the same.

We offer Community Groups for adults in various stages of life:

  • Married Groups include couples in the same stage of life—newly married, without children, with children, and empty nesters.
  • Men’s Groups are made up of  men at different stages of life, including married, single, divorced, and widowed.
  • Women’s Groups are made up of single women or a mix of women at different stages of life, including married, single, divorced, and widowed.

To join a Community Group, come to GroupLink. GroupLink is a two-hour event where you can meet people in a similar stage of life and area of town with the goal of forming a Community Group. A host and plenty of staff members and volunteers will be on hand to navigate you through the process of meeting others and forming a group.

Will take place on September 23 at the Orillia Opera House, 20 Mississaga Street West at 7pm.

GroupLink Barrie
Will take place on September 24 at Connexus Church, 20 Mills Road at 7pm.
