Community Groups

Enjoy the benefit of being in community! We believe dialogue is an essential part of spiritual formation, so everyone is free to be authentic with who and where they are on their journey. We enjoy eating, laughing and investing time in each other and in who we are becoming. These groups are sermon-based for the purpose of processing the spiritual content we've heard since we last met.

Most of these groups meet on the 1st & 3rd Sunday nights of the month, but not all of them; however please contact the group leader before you plan on visiting.

Childcare is provided during the hours of 4:00–6:30pm at GPBC for groups who meet on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month. Ask your leader for further details.

  • If you are visiting a new group for the first time, we highly encourage you to give the leader a call and let them know you're coming! Read below for more information about each of our groups and leaders.
