Home Groups

Following Jesus Together

Following Jesus Together

Home Groups are outposts of Kingdom community where we are formed into and practice the love of Christ. We pursue this by practicing and encouraging one another to be with the Father, love like Jesus and live in the Spirit. 

How to Join a Home Group

You can sign up for one of our quarterly Group Connects on the Events page of our website.

How Home Groups Work at Citizens

Meet

Groups meet anywhere from 2 – 4 times a month in homes throughout Collin County and surrounding areas.

Encourage

Individuals will share praises and testimonies and encourage one another in love and accountability.

Study

There is a time to reflect on the past Sunday sermon or to walk through a group study together.

Serve

Groups find ways to help one another in times of need and to serve their communities together.

Pray

There is ongoing prayer for one another throughout the week and when you meet as a group.

Practice

Groups are encouraged and taught how to live out the truths of God’s word in their daily and weekly life, through spiritual practices and disciplines.

Why we need community

The Christian faith was never meant to be lived in isolation. It’s not an individual thing. It’s a community thing. That doesn’t mean we don’t have our own personal relationships with God through Jesus Christ, but it does mean that those relationships are intended to be lived out with our brothers and sisters in Jesus.

God uses His people as a way to build us up and to form us more into the image of His Son. In Scripture, we see this through the “one-anothers.” There are 59 passages in the New Testament that reference “one another,” calling and commanding us to love one another, pray for one another, encourage one other, teach one another and so on. We need one another, we need community, to help us live obediently and faithfully on mission for Jesus Christ.
