Community Groups

What Are Community Groups?                                      Click here for a list of groups.

God did not create us to live in 
isolation; rather, He has purposed us to live in community with others. In other words, He wants us to do life together. In essence, Community Groups are a place where we learn to do just that

We offer a Community Group for every age person, from newborn through senior adult. Our groups are for preschoolers, children & students are organized by age or grade.

Our adult groups are organized around stage of life. Although we list an age by each group, it is a loose guide & you will most often find people in a group that are outside the posted age range. The more important factors are the age of your children, the size group you prefer, the teaching style you enjoy & your marital status. We often offer more than one group for a particular life stage. WE have groups that are small, with fewer than 10 people, all the way up to groups that are large & may run as high as 80 to 100 people during the winter. Our teachers all teach the same scripture passage & key principle but they do so in varying styles. If you stop by the kiosk on Sunday mornings or contact the church, we can talk with you about those factors & help you find the groups where you are most likely to connect. Because of the options & diversity we offer, please feel comfortable visiting more than one group to find your best connection.


Community Groups Help Us Fulfill Our Mission

Community Groups are a vital part of our missions, which is "todo whatever it takes to connect people to Jesus Christ." They extend personal invitations to our gusts to join them, offer social opportunities open to new people & provide support for one another & service to others. Community Groups are also the key component of our strategy to "equip believers practically in God's Word." The small group setting provides opportunity for questions & discussions that are not possible in a worship service. These are not classes for Bible scholars; they are families where everyone is learning together & no question is too basic.

It is our hope that every person who considers Sarasota Baptist their church home would attend a weekly corporate worship service, connect with others through a Community Group & share the knowledge, abilities & passion God has given them through serving.
