Community Engagement Teams

We invite you to join our communion in the practice of shared rhythms that we hope will create space for us to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did.  These practices include daily prayer, weekly worship and discipleship, and serving together monthly.

To serve together monthly, we are forming Community Engagement Teams, which are teams of people serving around shared passion areas the first week of each month.  We would love for you to join a Community Engagement Team!

 

Why are we doing this?  

To engage in holistic mission while being in community with one another and our neighbors.

 

When do we serve?  

Starting in October, Community Engagement Teams will serve the first week of each month as part of our churchwide rhythms.  If you’re in an Edenton Street small group, your group will not meet on the week you serve together.

 

How do I get involved?
