We believe the church is the family of God called to live
our mission to advance His Kingdom. The church is not a building, place, or
program, but God's people.
Living in community with one another is essential to growing in the Gospel and becoming more like Christ. Showing up to a Sunday gathering is great, but it is our desire to see everyone grow deeper in a relationship with God and become part of a genuine Christian community by participating in a small group. Small groups are part of the New Community Church “DNA."
Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ready to dive in?

We are excited to announce our Fall series “Rediscovering Discipleship” that will kick off on Sunday, September 27. The church-wide study includes the Sunday messages, group interactions, and daily devotions. In the past, these integrated series have proved to be unifying, popular, and optimal growth opportunities. We are challenging everyone at NCC to get engaged as we all move together in the same direction.
There are in-person, virtual, and hybrid groups available for both small groups (five and more people) as well as micro groups (two to four people). Groups will begin on various dates throughout September.
Join us in this initiative and make sure that you register your commitment to this study, so we can send you the resources you need to participate.

Tuesday, September 15-November 17, from 7-8:30 p.m. – House in Gibsonia
In this study of Psalms by Jen Wilkin, women will grow in Bible literacy and learn tools for studying Hebrew poetry which provides a greater depth to the Psalms. We often turn to the Psalms in personal devotion but gathering in community helps us grow together as we learn to bring our anger, sorrow, joy, and celebration to God while using the Bible to guide our prayers. A $15 fee for access to the workbook and videos will be needed through a separate link that will be provided after registering online at NCC.
Sunday, September 27-November 1, from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
Ladies join us in-person or online for time together to share how God is revealing Himself to us. During our discussions, we will be reflecting on a verse or verses that we want to dig into and meditate on through the craft of Bible journaling, coloring, painting, or creating. You don't have to be creative to attend, just come with an open heart and a desire to dig deeper into His Word. No materials required. Sara Stewart, facilitator of the group, will provide free printables each week. Register online here.
Tuesdays, September 29-November 10, at 6 p.m. - NCC 1st-Floor Commons
In this 7-session study of Jennifer Rothschild’s Take Courage: A Study of Haggai, we will learn to walk confidently in our calling, stay motivated when opposition and obstacles arise, defeat discouragement, and invest in God’s purposes by trusting Him for results. We all feel discouraged at times. However, God promises to give us courage to press on and trust Him. Childcare will not be available. Register online.
Tuesdays, September 29-November 10, at 6 p.m. – Virtual Group
In this 7-session video-based Bible study of Jude: Contending for the Faith in Today’s Culture by Jackie Hill Perry, women are invited to dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We will recognize God’s Word as an anchor in the ever-shifting cultural climate, discover our God-given identity in a world of deception, and see how Scripture still speaks to the church today. Register online.
Saturday, Beginning September 26, from 7-8:30 a.m.
Men of all ages are invited to join other men for a Bible study. The 2020 Bible study will feature the Chris Bolinger’s Daily Strength for Men, a unique devotional, where men will grow deeper in their faith. The other resource to be utilized is Getting Real: A Small Group Guide to Spiritual Authenticity. For more information, please contact Mark Sammartino. Please register online. The first meeting will meet outside NCC's front door. Future meeting locations will be set at the first session.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
