Small groups shape the community at Church of the Beloved, helping our members navigate Gospel influence and missional life (Acts 5:42).

As a church, we believe that community is never found, but built. Calling our small groups “community groups” emphasizes our mission to see the Gospel transform people into Spirit-filled disciples, who know they are the beloved of God, because of Christ alone.

Our community groups exist to encourage us to grow in our shared identity in Christ (Matthew 28:19-20), to embrace our unique God-given personalities and abilities, and to love like Jesus (Matthew 22:37-40).

Community groups gather in various neighborhoods in Chicago, encouraging us to pray for and love our neighbors and city. Each group consists of people from different backgrounds, in different life stages, and different seasons in their faith.
