Community Groups

Community Groups are the best way at Midtown to get connected and experience the heart of our church. What is a Community Group?  At first glance it appears to be very simple, a shared meal and discussion over a Biblical text, usually from Sunday's sermon. But, in reality we believe that Community Groups serve an eternal purpose.  Here is our definition for Community Groups:  they are an instrument of worship, a weapon against sin, and a tool for evangelism – all for the exaltation of Jesus. It is in the context of Biblical community that we can worship God, fight sin and reach the lost in a way that is impossible when we are on our own.

"A Real Emotional life" 


“No-one was ever less prepared for such an experience than Jesus. As the eternal Word he had always been with God (Jn 1:1). As the incarnate Son, the Father had always been with him (Jn. 16:32). They had gone up from Bethlehem to Calvary, like Abraham and Isaac, 'together' (Gn: 22:6, 8). But now, in the hour of his greatest need, God is not there. When he most needs encouragement, there is no voice to cry, 'This is my beloved Son.' When he most needs reassurance, there is no-one to say, 'I am well pleased.' No grace was extended to him, no favor shown, no comfort administered, no concession made. God was present only as displeased, expressing that displeasure with overwhelming force in all the circumstances of Calvary. Every detail in a drama which walked a fine line between chaos and liturgy declared, 'This is what God thinks of you and of the sin you bear!' He was cursed (Gal. 3:13), because he became 'the greatest thief, murderer, adulterer, robber, desecrator, blasphemer, etc., there has ever been anywhere in the world'.
