LIFE IS BETTER
It's in community where belonging, care and growth happen best!
We weren't meant to live life alone which is why living life as a family is our priority. We think Ethos has some of the best people you'll meet... you might be surprised how much you grow by just being in community with others. We've always said "we're better together." That's true now more than ever!
What is a community group?
Community Groups are small gatherings that meet (in-person or online) across the city on different days of the week. Community Groups will be a place to celebrate stories, pray together, worship, and lean into God’s Word with one another. All while building meaningful and life-giving relationships.
What is a study group?
Study Groups meet (in-person or online) to learn about the Bible and be equipped to follow God. Study Groups will use Rightnow Media to watch a short teaching and then discuss the content and applications. Studies include books of the Bible, marriage, parenting, finances, hearing from God and more.
Can I lead a community group?
Yes! You don’t need to have everything together to be a leader at Ethos (we don't!). You just need a place to host and a willingness to facilitate open conversation using the "Community Guide" discussion questions. We’ll even provide group leader training.
(Our vision for groups)
"Small Groups" are designed for you to experience community, find freedom, and take next steps. Small Groups run in 3 seasons throughout the year - spring (12 weeks), summer (6 weeks), and fall (12 weeks). Here are the benefits of groups:
Groups stir us up toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Groups help us care for the needs of people in the Church and carry each others' burdens (Galatians 6:2)
Groups encourage authentic development, growth, and learning (Colossians 1:9-10)
The best teams are made up of a bunch of nobodies who love everybody, serve anybody, and don't care about becoming a somebody.
We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the pulpit to the parking lot, every role looks different but each is of utmost and equal importance. If you are interested in getting involved at Ethos and making a difference, join us for Ethos 101.
Ethos 101 guides you to discover your purpose and live the life God created for you. Ethos 101 will equip you to 1) connect to the church, 2) discover the strengths of your purposeful design, 3) develop your God-given gifts to make a difference in the lives of others. Plus, it's just a fun event with food and childcare provided!
