R.E.M (Small) Groups

Small groups are a key aspect of our church community.

REM groups meet regularly to encourage each other to live our everyday lives in light of who God is and what He’s done through Jesus.

These small groups of 10-25 encourage one another to live as adopted children of God who eat, laugh, and cry together as the diverse family of God; learning to love our neighbors, as well as the least among the lost.

We believe that our God-given identity is best lived out when we enjoy God by engaging in a relationship with each other (R), education time in the Bible (E), and missional relationship with our neighbors (M). So we have one week each month devoted to each of these letters in our REM acronym.

    • At least 30 square feet of open floor space per person in the group*
    • Monthly re-evaluation of in-person option, by group and REM lead team
      • Ex: group discusses monthly: “should we continue to meet in person?”
    • No shared food within in-person REM groups
  • People may move from an in-person to a virtual group if their preference changes
    • Please process with your leader or group when considering this, as the group may move to virtual if a majority of attendees change preference
    • If you are interested in virtually participating with your in-person group, please discuss with your REM leads to determine if that’s a viable option
