Community Groups

COMMUNITY GROUPS

belong | believe | become 

We were created for community. Community groups provide us with an intentional way to nurture our relationship with God and grow in relationship with one another while finding ways to impact the world together in Jesus’ name.

Community groups come in all shapes and sizes! Most community groups will meet for 9-10 months out of the year (typically coinciding with the school year), although some groups may choose to meet year round. Groups can come together because of a shared stage in life or a passion for ministry. Others may form around common study interests or activities. Groups are typically made up of between 8-12 participants and meet on various days and times. Each group is encouraged to commit to a shared covenant of expectations within the group. 

We hope that every member of 2BC becomes invested in a community group. Will you join us on our mission to foster meaningful, Christ-centered community?  To learn more about joining one of these community groups, contact Kim Halfhill, Engagement Director, at khalfhill@2bcliberty.org.


SPRING 2019 COMMUNITY GROUPS

It’s not too late to join a community group!  A few groups still have spaces and new groups are forming soon.  Please contact Kim Halfhill, Director of Engagement, to learn more or sign-up.

MISSION-MINDED WOMEN:  All mission-minded women are invited to the next meeting of 2BC’s newest community group on Monday, February 18 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the home of Loulla Efstathiou.  Join us for fellowship, prayer, and conversation about expanding our ministry partnership with In As Much Ministries.  Feel free to bring a snack to share!  

NEW GROUPS FORMING:

RESILIENCY GROUP 1:  This community group is for anyone who wants to build resilient youth.  Parents, teachers, grandparents, children’s workers – anyone is welcome!  Together, the group will explore practical ways to foster resilience in children and youth.  Group meeting dates and times will be decided once the group is formed.

RESILIENCY GROUP 2:  Are you looking for a deeper dive into adverse childhood experiences (ACES)?  This community group will begin with a book study of “The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-term Effects of Childhood Adversity.”  The group will focus on understanding ACES and the role we all play in sharing hope with those around us.  Group meeting dates and times will be decided once the group is formed.

WOMEN’S GROUP:  A new women’s group is forming this spring.  Look for details soon!  

OPEN COMMUNITY GROUPS 

Early Birds Bible Study
Leader: Teresa Anderson ● Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m.
Come and join us for a time of fellowship and study where we will discuss and apply Christ's teachings to what’s going on in the world and in our own lives.  Gatherings will be pretty informal (at Caribou Coffee on 291) with a laid-back, judge-free, and caring atmosphere. This group is targeted towards early service attendees, but all adults are welcome!

Life Together
Leader:  Tana Clements  ● Meeting Time: Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
Life Together is an inter-generational group of women who gather on Sunday mornings to share our best of times and our worst of times, all the while looking to the scripture, the life of Jesus, and the writings of other Christians as we do this thing called life. We are committed to supporting one another in a healthy community.

Men’s Fellowship Breakfast
Meeting Time: 1st Saturday of every month at 8:30 a.m.
2BC men gather once a month on Saturday mornings September through May for a fellowship breakfast. Come when you can without reservation.

Mission Minded Women 
Meeting Time: 3rd Monday of every month at 6:00 p.m.
2BC has a rich history of learning about and engaging with our mission partners at home and around the globe.  A new evening missions group for women is forming to create even more opportunities to support 2BC’s mission partners.  Join us for fellowship, learning, and sometimes even snacks from around the globe!  Those needing childcare should speak with Gwen Phillips, Children's Pastor.

Nighttime MOPS 
Leader: Alyson Nash ● Meeting Time: 2nd Wednesdays of the month at 6:00 p.m. in the Oak Room
This is a new group looking to grow and expand their activities. Meetings usually include a video and discussion. Our meetings are a place for Moms to come and be in a judgment-free environment. Interested Moms can email us at mops2bc@gmail.com.

Women on Mission
Meeting Time: First Tuesday of every month at 9:30 a.m.
This is an established group that meets once a month to learn about mission work that 2BC supports around the world and in our community. Each meeting includes a service or collection project. Guest speakers are usually part of the meeting as well as great food!

Women’s Bible Study Group
Leader: Cathy Cole ● Meeting Time: Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
This Bible study for women is to seek Truth in what the WORD tells us about God and who we are. Earthly relationships and circumstances do not define who we are. We will spend eight weeks (perhaps more) together seeking hope and purpose from the Author of our lives.  A high-level of commitment, including homework, is required of group members.
