You have good questions.

Where do I take my next steps following Jesus? Find friends who feel like family? Learn the joy of serving others?

Our answer: Groups

At Reach we spend a lot of time talking about how we want to be the church, and reach the city. We aspire to be a community that is constantly striving to live those words out together in our everyday lives. The primary place this commitment plays out is in Groups — which are the very heartbeat of who we are and what we do. Simply put, Groups are followers of Jesus and their friends, learning to live like family, for the good of their city. They meet throughout the region, gathering in homes, cafes, parks, and any other space where they can grow in their love for God, each other, and their city.

Group Rhythms

Family Meals

Groups gather together to slow down and enjoy food, drink, laughter and conversation around the table. It is in this rhythm where we invite others to watch the big game, to cook out, to have conversation or to share a meal. Here at the table, we are reminded that we are family because God has adopted us and invited us to his table.


Within every Group are people gathering in smaller settings to study the Bible, grow deeper friendships and pray intentionally for the people in our lives. We call this DNA, and its purpose is to remind us of who we are in Jesus by focusing us on who God is and what He has done for us. They provide the foundation for all we do, and their upward posture motivates us to be who God has called us to be.


Groups practice an outward posture together that focuses on being a part of God’s mission. We identify opportunities to connect with our neighbors, serve our communities, and show compassion for those in need. Here we remember that Jesus was sent to serve us, and choose to act on the belief that he has now sent us to serve others on his behalf. We experience more joy than we thought possible as we step out to love our city well.
