Why Care Groups?
The early church met regularly in small groups for prayer, worship and teaching. Acts 2 presents a beautiful picture of relational community in Christ, which awakened a genuine and sacrificial care for one another.
Scripture commands us to love one another, to be devoted to one another, to counsel one another, to submit to one another, to exhort one another. As fellows members of the body, we have the holy obligation of seeking the spiritual good of one another, that we might all grow up in the faith. We need each other far more than we realize.
Obviously, we don’t find specific guidelines for doing Care Groups in the Bible per se, but we think the basis for having them is strongly Biblical. In fact, we view Care Groups as one of the primary instruments for establishing and encouraging each other at Christ Covenant.
What do they look like?
A Care Group is a microcosm of the church that seeks to fulfill the mission of the church on a more intimate and practical level.
Each group (between 3-12 people) urges members to:
Love God's Glory - Worship God in praise, prayer and teaching.
Love God's People - Edify each other through faith-building relationships.
Love God's World - Amplify Christ in the community and beyond through prayer and gospel outreach.
Most groups meet in a leader’s home on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, right after the service for about 2 hours. A few groups meet at other times throughout the week. Many groups eat a meal together, then discuss the most recent sermon. Other groups read and discuss a book together or follow curriculum on a particular topic of study.
Locations vary and are spread throughout the Raleigh area. A link to see the map is below.
