Community Groups

“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God…Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone… In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” – Ephesians 2:19-22

We encourage members of the Redeeming Grace Family to connect with others in our church outside of the Sunday meeting. We look forward to getting
to know you!

Our Community Group welcomes singles and families. We meet on Saturday evenings so that the entire family can be involved, and end early enough to make sure everyone gets rest before Sunday. We share a meal and spend time in Bible study and prayer.

We are a relatively new group that meets on Sundays right after service from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Our home is about a five minute drive from church near GMU. We generally meet on the first and third Sundays of each month. During our meetings, you can expect to share in a light meal, press a bit deeper on the preached Word and spend time in prayer together. We hope that our Sunday meetings will be an opportunity to welcome those who are new or newer to the church or those just looking to find fellowship after service. All are welcome! For those with younger children, we have a teenage daughter who is excellent with kids and would love to serve your family. During the remainder of the year, we’ll meet outdoors as the weather permits.

In fast-paced Northern Virginia, forming genuine relationships can be difficult. At Redeeming Grace, one of the ways we live out gospel-centered community is through our Community Groups. Made up of men and women from different generations of life, these groups meet throughout the week so that we can do life with one another, study God’s Word together, and encourage one another in our mission to be disciples making disciples. Groups meet in various locations. You can find a list of the different Community Groups below.

Newcomers to Redeeming Grace Church can learn more about Community Groups and church involvement by taking the Membership Explored class. If you need further assistance finding a Community Group, please email Laures Merryman.
