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.

NEW POP-UP GROUPS

Pop-up groups form at different times throughout the year and typically meet for 8-10 weeks.

Contemplative Practices Community Group
Leaders: Christy Edwards and Kathy Benavidez  Twice monthly on Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

Together we will explore various practices that seek out living a life of wholeness. Our hope is to find moments of sabbath together through meditation, contemplative prayer, and soul work.  The group will meet on select Sundays beginning on April 28 and ending in June.

Resiliency Group 
Leaders: TBA ● Meeting Time TBD

Looking for a deeper dive into 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.  This group will meet twice per month beginning in April.  

Social Justice Book Study Group
Leaders: Todd & Carrie Marcantonio ● Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

In answering the biblical call to act justly and love mercifully, can Christians cross lines of privilege to walk humbly not only with God but with their marginalized neighbors as well?  We will use the book “No Innocent Bystanders” to examine the role of allies in social justice movements and consider what works, what doesn't, and why. We will discuss what allies legitimately can accomplish, what they can't, and what kind of humility and clarity is required to tell the difference.  The group will meet for 8 weeks beginning on April 14.  

You can sign-up for these groups in the Welcome Center or register here.

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.
