In community to reach the community.

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

At NEXT, we believe that God made you for community. In community we are known, loved, cared for, pursued, encouraged and challenged to be more like Christ. Community Groups provide a place for people to connect in authentic relationships, apply the Gospel to their lives and, ultimately, impact families, neighborhoods, workplaces, local communities and the world with the Good News of Jesus.

The only thing missing is you!

We're living in the most-connected times we've ever seen. We can "like" in a split-second, text in a moment & follow in a flash... why are so many still lonely and without someone to turn to? Having meaningful, authentic relationship with Christ-followers is a priority, and it's found clearly in the Bible.

Community Groups are the safe place to grow deeper with Jesus and your church family, essential to building life-giving relationships! As much as we hope to catch a glimpse of community together on a Sunday morning, real community is perfected throughout the week.

Are you looking for community at NEXT? New groups are launching throughout the year - use the links below to get connected as soon as possible!

If you desire to start a new group, please fill out the registration below for our EQUIP leadership class and we will be in touch with next steps!
While our groups are not publicly advertised. We've made it simple to get in one! We have new groups launching soon, and currently have a waitlist to join as we are currently at capacity.

Use the links to submit a question, or a group finder query (to join the waitlist) and we will be in touch with the best options for you based on your selections.
Interested in starting a community group? Leadership does NOT have to be scary. Chances are you are already “leading” those around you in a non-CG setting! Are you a good listener? Do you have a heart to encourage, support and challenge others? Do you love God, love others and live intentionally, empowered by the Holy Spirit to exercise good character and judgement? Then, you are ready to jump in!

What do groups look like?

We believe that groups are meant to do life together, disciple one another and be on mission in a variety of ways, ultimately in community to reach the community! Our groups take place throughout the week in different areas around the church including Harleysville, Souderton, Lansdale, Collegeville, Norristown, Royersford, Limerick & more!

We offer many different group types including, but not limited to: 
  • Multigenerational
  • Spiritual development
  • Activity & shared hobbies/interest groups
  • Same age/life stage groups
  • Specialized support

Every group is lead by a trained community group co-leaders and are overseen by a coach.

Seasons vary within our community groups (when they meet, some groups might run longer or shorter), but we'll help you find a schedule that fits you!

Community groups will typically change their rhythms in the summer, however, most groups in-season will meet at least 3 or 4 times a month. We'd love to have you join us!
