Community Groups

MINISTRY OVERVIEW


Community Groups are the heart and soul of Catalyst and the best place for you to grow in your faith and connect relationally with others. We believe that spiritual growth & discipleship happen best in an environment of relationship. Sitting face-to-face around a living room, a kitchen table, a restaurant, a coffee shop, sharing life, produces the community we desire and are created for. At each gathering, groups study and discuss the topics and scriptures from the Sunday sermon.

Catalyst Community Groups also seek to be outward focused. Every group will regularly schedule an Inclusive Community activity (hanging out with friends and those far from God around a meal, bowling, movie, etc. ) and a Community Mission project (being the hands and feet of Jesus to the least of these). Groups meet weeknights in Santa Paula and Ventura.
