community groups

One of the best ways you can get plugged in at White Oak is through our Community Groups. Groups aim to help you grow closer to God and to others in the church.

 

Community Groups consist of 5-25 people of one or both genders who gather at least every other week to help one another grow in their faith by learning and applying God's Word. White Oak offers two types of Community Groups that provide unique ways to do that.

 

Short-Term Groups last from 6 to 12 weeks. These groups provide focus, honing in on one issue and seeing what God's Word says about it or focusing on one particular portion of Scripture. They also provide flexibility, being short and compact enough to fit into busy schedules. They also provide the flexibility to move from group to group based on what topics individuals need to focus on.

Long-Term Groups meet year-round and have no definitive start or end date; anyone can join at any time. These groups provide continuity, allowing for longer studies and the ability to build off the knowledge gained from previous studies. They also provide a unique opportunity for community, as one can grow deeper relationships with other members over time.
