Community Groups

At GBC, we believe that our greatest spiritual growth takes place in the context of community. Because of this, participation in a Community Group is seen as an integral part of the Christian life at GBC.

Before signing up for a Community Group, we want to ensure that you have completed a Growth Group. Participation in a Growth Group is a foundation for our church body. If you have not completed a Growth Group, use the following LINK to register for a Growth Group.

Registration for a Spring 2018 Community Group is closed.

To register for the Spring 2018 Community Group Late Registration, please use the following LINK. Even though registration has closed, it is our desire that everyone participate in a Community Group. We will do our best to get you placed into a group, but it depends on availability of spots.

In order to register, you will need to log-in using your GBC Connect account.

Topics offered for Spring 2018 Community Groups


The Galatians had come to Christ by faith, relying on God’s saving mercy. But certain ones were saying, “In order to keep His favor, you have to maintain His standards by your own efforts.” To safeguard the essence of the gospel, Paul reaffirms in this letter that we can only live right with God by faith in Him and His grace.


By faith we are reborn into the family of God. Absolutely, agrees James. But God wants more than justified infants; He wants mature daughters and sons. Faith is foundational, but it must be genuine, proven faith, evident to the world. James’s exhortation is a challenge to Christians of every age to keep growing up.
