Neighborhood groups are 'mini communities' that provide mutual support and care for all members. We encourage you to invest in a Neighborhood Group in order to build relationships, support one another in prayer and friendship, and know each other deeply as a gospel community. Moms groups serve as Neighborhood Groups for moms, offering convenient times as well as providing childcare. The Ladies and Men's Fellowship provide an additional level of learning and place for community. Please note that the Cross-Cultural Team, Marriage Care Group, and the Ladies and Men's Fellowships are intended to provide equipping and support in addition to, not to substitute for the depth of community and support that a weekly neighborhood group provides.
Neighborhood Groups (NG's) are small, casual, meaningful, fun, come-as-you-are mini-communities of 10-15 people that meet in homes throughout Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, Adams Morgan and Petworth. These NGs provide a nurturing environment in which people of different spiritual and cultural backgrounds can grow in their relationships with God (group discussion and prayer), with one another (friendship/mutual support), and with our neighborhood (serving and loving our neighbors).

We invite you to come out to the Men's Fellowship Breakfast that meets on Saturday once a month from 8:15am to 9:45m. We ask each man to bring a breakfast item to share if he is able. We will have breakfast together, then either hear a 20 minute talk from one of the men in our church over a pertinent topic, have one person share their story of their life and how being a christian impacts their everyday life, or just hang out and get to know one another better. After which, there will be a short dialogue and prayer time. We invite each of the men to join us for some good food and a time of bonding with one another.

The Cross-Cultural Team's vision is to asses the congregation and ourselves, equip with a scriptural foundation, develop critical lenses and cross-cultural skills, foster meaningful, cross-cultural relationships and facilitate difficult conversations. If you are longing to see a greater realization of God’s cross-cultural Kingdom come to our neighborhood and our church, whether in terms of race and ethnicity, language, politics, or age, and you are ready to take action in some way, you are welcomed to join this group to take an active role in realizing this component of our community.
