A Community Group usually consists of 7 to 16 people who meet on a regular basis in someone’s home or at ECBC to study and discuss the Bible, pray for one another, care for one another, and do ministry together. These groups meet all across the Charleston Area on various nights of the week.
No, anyone is welcome to a Community Group. If you’re new to a group, it’s a great idea to contact the group leader and let them know you’ll be attending.
Many small groups use an approved RightNow Media video study series from RightNow Media’s ECBC Custom Library, while some groups review and discuss the ECBC
To get plugged into a Community Group, click on “Find an Open Group”, and search the list for a group that best fits your needs and location, then contact the group leader. He will be in touch soon with more details about the group meeting. You are welcome to visit several groups in order to find the right fit before making a commitment.
Another way to find out more about Community Groups is to visit our Kiosk in the “CONNECT” corner of the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings. A representative can guide you through the online process and discuss your options.
A childcare reimbursement supplement is available to parents attending your group through a cooperative effort with other families in your Community Group. The group leader will complete and submit a childcare reimbursement form in order to help make it possible for you to participate in Community Group life without making it cost prohibitive. Caregivers are vetted by the group and children are usually cared for in a separate room of the house where the group meets, or in a home nearby.
We also have several Wednesday Night Community Groups that meet within the church building and utilize ECBC childcare facilities. Every group takes a turn to care for the children of the other groups meeting in the building.
