COMMUNITY LIFE of The Plant is rooted in relationships that people have with one another. We believe that a person's relationship with God is a journey in which people grow together through the power of the Holy Spirit and are empowered to experience their divine purpose. The sole purpose for having community life in our church is that we would “Gather to Scatter!” What does this mean? In Acts 2:42-48 there were three main purposes for gathering together: grow in their love and knowledge of Christ (UP), build relationships with each other (IN) and, together, be the hands and feet of Jesus right in their communities and neighborhoods (OUT). We gather and make disciples of Christ to be scattered back into our neighborhoods, communities and places of work. Join a group below!
Starting Point is the front door of our church. In order to truly know who The Plant is, we offer a five-week setting that allows people to meet leaders and learn about our core values with the purpose to find out if The Plant is the church for them.
A Missional Community is a gathering of people who desire to partner with other people both within the church body and with others who desire to be on mission together. Their purpose is to make Christ known within their neighborhoods, collective relationships and common passions. Missional Communities are mid-sized groups big enough to serve together with impact while small enough to where everyone can find a place to belong!

Life Groups are gatherings of 5-10 people who meet weekly or bi-weekly. Their purpose is to have a place of community and study of the Bible. Life Groups take a deeper look into the Scriptures, build strong bonds with one another and encourage each other to live out the Gospel in their everyday lives. There is a Life Group for everyone: Women’s Group, Men’s Groups and Topic Specific Groups! If you're not plugged into a Missional Community and desire to have a more specific point of connection, we encourage them to join a Life Group. For more info contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Deeper Life is a phrase that the Christian & Missionary Alliance identifies as the vehicle for encountering the presence of God. Deeper Life is an opportunity to gather for worship, prayer and being equipped through understanding the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Deeper Life will take place once a month on a Friday night.
Membership is not only a priority it is a responsibility to our denomination and being a 501(c)3 organization. The name in which we identify our Members is, "Partners." We have not heard a Partnership class in some time. Beginning the 2017-2018 School Year we will host a class to inform and invite individuals to become Partners with The Plant.
