What groups are offered at PVCC?
At Pleasant Valley, small-group life primarily consists of Community Groups, Grace Marriage Coaching Groups, and Bible Studies. More information is below, and if you are interested in Grace Marriage Coaching Groups, click here to learn about our marriage ministry and how to get involved.
What is a Community Group?
Community Groups are smaller gatherings of people where shepherding, fellowship and mission collide. They are a place for us to live life on mission together. A Community Group is not primarily a Bible Study, support group, social activist group, or simply a weekly meeting. While these things may be a part of them, their primary purpose is to see the neighborhoods where they meet changed by the Gospel as it is lived out in community and those involved discipled in the life of Jesus.
What should you expect?
Community Groups gather around our city throughout the year. Each group follows a monthly rhythm of meeting for discussions and prayer and times to gather as a family and/or for mission/service to our community. While what happens in our Community Groups will vary from week to week, Christ is the constant, and you can come each week expecting to grow deeper in your relationship with him and to see his name glorified throughout our city. Community Groups give space to our lives to give time to making disciples on a regular basis. Most Community Groups have anywhere from 3-6 couples. You do not have to be a part of PVCC to be apart of a Community Group, in fact we would love to have more people in Community Groups than members!
Our dream is nothing less than to see the city of Owensboro changed by the power of the Gospel, and we believe that Community Groups are a great way to grow together and engage our neighborhoods for this purpose.
