As human beings we crave community. We need it. We were designed to live life in the context of deep and meaningful friendships. And yet we live in a culture that makes genuine community difficult to achieve.
At Rivanna, community is the essence of our church. It is palpable when you walk into one of our gatherings! One of the primary ways we cultivate these relationships are through Home Groups. In these weekly gatherings, we study scripture together, we pray for one another, we invest in one another’s lives, we eat…and we laugh. A lot. In a world where community is increasingly difficult to find, we warmly welcome you to join ours.
Come find your community!
