Community Group Purpose Statement

Building our community to reach the world.

A community group is a regularly scheduled gathering of between 8 and 15 people, who gather with a clear purpose designed to meet the needs of their particular group. 


When do Community Groups meet?
Community Groups meet regularly, according to the need or desire of each particular group.  Some meet during the day, or at night, some on weekends or during the week.

See the Vision!!!

Community Group Vision:
The vision is that, through the diversity of groups our body of Christ would be built up to “reach the world”. 

The idea is that each group dynamic vary, and therefore we, as a community of believers, would be using “all possible means to reach some” (1 Cor. 9:22).  

Community Groups will together meet the five purposes of the church (though individual groups may not meet all five)

1.  Worship – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind…” (Matt. 22:37-39)

2.  Ministry – “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  (Matt. 22:37-39)

3.  Evangelism – “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations”  (Matt. 28:19-20)

4.  Discipleship –  “…teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.”  (Matt. 28:19-20)

5. Fellowship  - “…that all of them may be one.”  (John 17:21)

Each Community Group will find their purpose and/or purposes that they would like to focus on and work to achieve their vision for the sake of the Kingdom of God. 

Live the Mission!!!

Community Group Mission:
Our mission is understood in three distinct, yet complimentary areas.

Building Our Community – This is focusing on building the local body of believers known as Roseau Community Church.  We will build through worship, fellowship, and discipleship.  We build not with numbers, but with a passionate, unquenchable love for God and love for one another.  When we live and act as the Church should: with a passionate desire to love and serve God, numbers become a product of that love.

Building Our Community – Beyond our walls is a world in desperate need of Christ, even though they may not even know it!  Together we will work to meet needs (ministry) and share the love of God with those in our community(evangelism), known as Roseau County,  so that they may come to experience the Grace and Love of God.

To reach the World – Christ said, “Go to all the nations.”  Did you ever meet someone somewhere far from home and realize they are either from Roseau or are friends with someone that is?  It is amazing how far our influence, spans!  We are reaching the world, right now!  Our mission is to reach a dying world with the life saving message of Jesus Christ, ever more effectively, ever more passionately, for the sake of God’s Glory, until our Lord returns!

 


 

"...Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith

for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you

who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.”
