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.

Community Group Topics

Isaiah
Through the prophet Isaiah, the Lord pronounced judgment on the proud who sought to save themselves. But through Isaiah God also comforted the humble with glimpses of a Prince of Peace. Learn more about the book of Isaiah in the 18 sessions of this classic Bible study.

Acts
From its beginnings among Jesus’ disciples, the church exploded into a worldwide force in just a few years. How? Jesus left His followers with a mission, and the Spirit of God moved mightily through them to fulfill it. The 20 sessions of this Bible study on the book of Acts examine Luke’s account of how the gospel spread and challenge us to know and live out our mission in the world.

1 Corinthians
To a proud and prosperous church, the Apostle Paul writes a stern reminder: Take your eyes off impressive externals and instead practice purity, humility, and love. His practical instructions concerning factions, sexuality, spiritual gifts, and worship remain profoundly relevant for believers pursuing genuine spiritual maturity. The 17 lessons of this study of 1 Corinthians deal with doctrine, grace, joy, and love.
