At Common Ground we believe relationships matter. As ordinary people impacted by the Gospel, we desire to make space in our lives for authentic relationships that center around God's truth and grace. Common Ground current hosts four (4) life communities that meet in living rooms throughout the Bethany and Progress Ridge areas.
Man/Otnes Life Community - Progress Ridge area
Kane/Kondo Life Community - West Union area
Shinseki/Bloch Life Community - Anastasia area
Nishida/Ladeau Life Community - Anastasia area
These vibrant communities will be expressed through three (3) core rhythms: Grow, Gather, and Go.
GROW. On a grow week we explore the Scriptures, pray for one another, and encourage one another to live out God-inspired truth that transforms the heart and mind. This learning context provides a safe space to spiritually mature and develop inspiring friendships.
GATHER. On a gather week we intentionally invite people into trusting relationships while cultivating existing ones by regularly sharing meals. If you commit to a life community at Common Ground please be ready to enjoy good stories, a ton of laughter, and great food. It'll feel like family because it is family!
GO. On a go week we practice compassion by being the hands and feet of Jesus. We believe in response to his graciousness towards us, we're called to love people in the same manner. So we take the time to serve others in order to meet the spiritual and physical needs of people in our neighborhoods.
