We are meant to live in community.
What are community groups?
We believe that God designed us to be in relationship with one another. Our community groups are made up of men and women from all generations of life. These groups meet throughout the week in homes and build community through fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, fun, sharing stories, and studying God's Word. Church is more than just a weekend service, and people grow best when they are in community with each other.
Why should I join a community group?
A disciple is someone who treasures Jesus above all else. This results in ongoing spiritual transformation both within the community and outside. A disciple is driven by a reckless love for others and a generosity flowing authentically from Jesus - all for His glory and our joy. Living in community with one another is one of the best ways to fulfill God's purpose of making and multiplying disciples. It is in authentic community that love, growth, accountability, transparency, and friendships thrive - giving way to gospel growth. Whether you're looking to get more connected at Illuminate or desiring to grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus, we'd encourage you to take this step in your faith!

Light - an outreach community group
This community group is a little different than the others, as it is service-focused, only meets once a month, and is not a Bible study.
LIGHT (Love Is God's Healing Touch): A community group with like-minded people of all ages that meets to develop relationships with one another and serve locally demonstrating God’s love through caring for the well-being of our neighbors with at-risk children.
Meets the fourth Monday of each month at Pima & Legacy Blvd.
Leaders: John & Tina Poole
