Many of us long to follow Jesus into the brokenness of the world, pushing beyond social media banter and shallow action into a deeper level of discussion, action, and prayer. That’s why we have launched our Prayer and Action Groups. These groups are an intensive community that’s focused on deeply engaging one area of brokenness together.

These groups are focused on four things:
1. Deeply understanding the focus issue through reading, discussion, and meeting with experts.
2. Praying together about the needs that we discover.
 3. Developing a clear plan of action for each person in the group to use their gifts/abilities/resources to address the focus issue.
4. Identify opportunities for our church to get involved.
