One of our core values at Redeemer church is community. Our desire is to live out the Gospel in loving relationships that express authentic care and concern. We understand that community is at the heart of the Gospel. God's design for his people is that they live out their faith in community. We are the Church. The church is not the building. We invite you to connect into each other's lives and live as the family of God. Too many Americans have a strange idea of being a "Lone Ranger Christian." This idea that they and God are a duo to take on the world. At Redeemer Church, we are passionate about connecting with one another and sharing in gospel living. And that's why you're reading this, right? To do more than just religious activity? To be a part of something bigger than yourself?
The primary way we cultivate community at Redeemer is through community groups. Community Groups are mid-week gatherings in homes throughout the Champaign-Urbana area. The primary purpose of Community Groups is to connect people through building friendships, sharing meals, learning & applying God's Word, prayer, and missional living.
