What's the difference?

Community Groups and Cultivate Groups go hand-in-hand. The goal of both groups is for us to grow in our walks with Jesus and to deepen our relationships with one another. Yet each group focuses on different aspects of our discipleship.

As people called to pick up our cross and follow Jesus, we can't do that apart from the community of believers.
