Canvas Fall 2018 Community Groups

fall-2018-books.png

Canvas Community Groups are one of the best places for meaningful relationships to develop and for sustained spiritual life-change to occur. In these groups, people study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where people gather to pray, eat, laugh, live, play, serve, and care for one another. Community Group Gatherings are about doing life together and walking in the direction of Jesus. Community Groups are typically small groups comprised of six to twelve individuals or five to eight couples that meet in someone’s home or coffee shop for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and encouragement.
