Community Groups at St. Charles
What is a Community Group?
A Community Group is an intentional community consisting of 3 to 12 people who meet regularly to pursue spiritual growth, friendship and support. It's a safe place to study the Bible, share your life, and ask tough questions. Community Groups meet 2 or more times a month, though weekly meetings are most common. Groups gather at a member's home, on the church campus, or even in a local restaurant.
We currently offer a variety of Community Group at St. Charles.
20s Community Groups are a great place for 20s to gather in meaningful community to study God's Word, have fun together, and challenge each other to become more like Jesus.
