Neighborhood Groups

Neighborhood Groups provide an opportunity to love our neighbor!  They are lay-led, organic expressions of finding ways to be the church in our neighborhoods through building Christian community where God has placed us—where we live!  This may include simple acts like checking in on fellow members, offers of assistance, outreach to non-member neighbors, intentional mutual prayer, and fellowship. In short, these groups embody our mission “to receive, live, and share the abundant life of Jesus Christ.”  

Please see the list below to find a neighborhood group near you. Our leaders would love to help you learn how to connect with a group in your area. If you don't see a group in your area yet, or if you have general questions about Neighborhood Groups, please contact Martha Rodes, Director of Lay Ministry Engagement at 615-385-2150 x 249 or
