DNA Groups

helping each other follow Jesus in all of life

We understand that our weekly gatherings as Community Groups are not always the ideal setting to share specific areas of our lives with one another.  Often there are weeks when some of us won’t be able to be a part of the gathering because we are watching the children that week, have to work late, or at home with sick kiddos or are even sick ourselves.  Knowing all of this to be the case, we encourage each member to be a part of a complementary means of helping each other follow Jesus in every area of our lives through a DNA group.

WHAT IS A DNA GROUP?

The term DNA group refers to a group that ideally consist of three people — men with men, women with women — who meet weekly to share what they are learning and how they are growing as believers in Jesus. We believe these groups can create a space to care for one another and bring deeper accountability into our lives. DNA is an acronym that reminds of us three key components of disciple-making:

  • Discover Jesus in the Scriptures (Text)
  • Nurture the truths of the Gospel in our hearts (Theology)
  • Take Action to obey what Jesus calls us to do (Life)

While we are strongly encouraging each member to be a part of a DNA group, we do not make these groups mandatory. That being said, we do believe that as disciples who’ve been saved and made righteous we are to “be transformed by the renewing of our minds” (Romans 12:2), and that because discipleship requires life-on-life interaction a DNA group can be a key catalyst for growth and transformation in each of our lives.
