Practicing the
Way of Jesus

Community Groups at Reality

Community Groups are intentional communities committed to seeking to know God and one another, while practicing the way of Jesus together.

Community Groups (CG’s) are just one of the ways that we experience connection and practice community.

Led by two or three trained leaders, Community Groups follow a seasonal rhythm that includes times of small group gatherings, sabbath, and large gatherings.

Community Groups meet in person and are only open to those who call Reality SF their church home.

Over the course of two years, a Community Group will go through each of our eight spiritual practices together. These include four practices of presence (Prayer, Scripture, Sabbath, and Fasting) and four practices of participation (Community, Generosity, Vocation, and Hospitality).

As intentional communities, every member makes the commitment and choice to actively participate and practice together – not only when your group is gathered, but in your everyday life.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does registration open?

Groups with availability will always be open to accepting new members (at the discretion of their leaders).

If I can’t join a Community Group, what are other ways I can get connected?

Throughout the year, we will continue to host other spaces for community. We encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on all our current events.

Additionally, a great way to become more connected to the life of our church is to volunteer on one of our teams. You can fill out our volunteer application here.

What does “intentional community” mean?

As a church, we believe in the importance of every Community Group member being committed to the discipleship of one another and are active participants together in creating a culture of devotion to Jesus. Community Groups are not simply a chance for fellowship, but an opportunity to dive deeper into our discipleship to Jesus.

What content do Community Groups go through together?

Over the course of two years, groups will have the opportunity to focus on the eight spiritual practices that are a part of our church’s Way of Life: Scripture, Fasting, Sabbath, Silence & Solitude, Hospitality, Vocation, Generosity, and Community. Each week of practice time will involve the movements of gathering, learning, practicing, and reflecting. You can find more information about our Way of Life here.
