DEVELOP LIFE-GIVING RELATIONSHIPS

God designed us to live in intentional community.

  • Gather regularly to build life-giving relationships with other Christ followers
  • Equip yourself and others through studying Scripture together 
  • Mobilize to put into action love for each other and the world

Types of Groups

Community Groups meet regularly throughout the year in various towns across the area to study the Bible and encourage one another as they seek to apply spiritual truths to everyday life.

Support Groups (Living Free groups) provide a safe place to find healing, hope, and support for various life challenges including grief, divorce, anxiety, substance abuse, and more. For confidential guidance about joining a Living Free group, contact care@blackrock.org

 

Topic-based Groups meet for a set number of weeks and focus on specific areas of study. Options range from groups for those building their faith foundation to those eager to take a deeper dive in a focus area such as Bible study skills, theology, or leadership development. 

New/Restarting Faith Groups: Are you recently starting or restarting to live as a follower of Jesus? These groups will allow you to grow alongside others who are at the same stage in their faith. You’ll be able to ask questions, receive guidance, and build Gospel-centered relationships.
