Gathering groups are community groups that tend to fellowship easily and often. Group time is primarily social with hanging out, activities, and building community through common interests.
Grow community groups tend to dive deeply into a study, and desire to attain knowledge of the Bible and God through life application classes, and topical curriculum.
Giving groups tend to have an evangelistic and externally focused approached toward serving the greater community and give of themselves in various ways. These types of groups seek out specific ways to impact our community and the world around us.
