God created us to live in gospel community, under the word, and rooted in the person of Jesus Christ. Our focus is to bring glory to Christ, to orient our lives around the gospel, to focus on change, and fulfill our mission as Christ’s ambassadors. To keep a proper balance and guard our Community Groups from revolving around something other than the gospel, we pursue at least four primary goals for life with one another:

    Progressive Sanctification (Growing Into the Image of Christ)
    Caring for One Another
    Biblical Fellowship
    Stewardship of Spiritual Gifts

Where do Community Groups gather?

Community Groups will gather in homes or other convenient and warm locations. We believe a home-style environment is helpful to facilitate healthy transparency and to spur us toward a richer life together.

When do Community Groups meet?

We recognize all of our lives are busy and even hectic at times. Therefore, our Community Groups enjoy a measure of flexibility for meeting times while still maintaining a commitment to regular, weekly fellowship. Groups typically meet on weekday evenings or Saturday.

How many people attend each Community Group?

We gather in groups of 10-12 people. These smaller numbers can often contribute to added warmth for sharing life together, as well as to help those who are new to Community Groups.

Who leads Paramount’s Community Groups?

Since Paramount is a new church plant, our pastors will lead the initial adult groups. As time progresses, it is the desire of the pastoral team to recognize men with the ability to lead, train them, and equip them to lead groups. These future leaders will be members of Paramount who are faithfully attending and serving within their respective Community Group. They will receive Community Group leadership training, to include training from “How People Change” and “Instruments in the Redeemers Hands” then become assistant leaders for a time, prior to starting a new group. As Paramount’s student ministry grows, student groups will form, led by an adult student ministry leader.

What should you expect if you attend a Community Group?

Everyone may expect a welcoming atmosphere of fellowship and hospitality. Community Groups regularly enjoy food, Scripture, fellowship, and prayer. As time progresses and Paramount begins to gather for Sunday worship, groups will transition into sermon-based discussions with down-to-earth thoughts and questions from the current Sunday morning preaching series. From time to time, community groups will meet in public to complete service the community, enjoy a recreation night, etc. If you do not receive regular communication from the group, please double check the time and location.
