Discover community made for you!
Community is an integral part of TCC, with our Community Groups functioning as connection points for people to form new relationships, strengthen existing ones, grow spiritually, and serve the world around them.
Community Groups are TCC partner-initiated small groups with specific focuses designed to connect the community inside and outside the body of TCC. These groups are encouraged to spend time in spiritual discussion and prayer during each meeting and to do at least one service project per semester. Our goal is for these groups to create relationships and connections that strengthen one another.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There A Cost To Join A Group?
There will be no base fees to join a group. However, some groups may have a minimal cost related to materials needed for the group according to the group’s needs. Check with your group leader for details.
Where Do The Groups Meet?
Groups may meet wherever is best for the group. It may be here at our church building or in the middle of the Smokies.
What Is The Time Commitment To A Group?
Each group has its own commitment within the semester system. If it is an ongoing group, it will be advertised at the beginning of each semester with the other groups starting up.
How Often Do The Groups Meet?
Each group has its own meeting time frame, from weekly, bi-weekly, for a season, or perpetual ongoing, or more! Usually, though, our groups meet bi-weekly, as that works best for most folks.
Who Can Lead A Community Group?
TCC Partners in good standing who have been through the Community Group approval process can lead a group.
Ages can vary, but for younger leaders, we partner with an adult to help make sure things are organized and running smoothly. We love it, though, when our Kids get involved and come up with some pretty incredible ideas.
What Kinds Of Community Groups Are There?
There are 2 main kinds of Community Groups: Activity-Based Groups and Christian Growth Focus Groups.
Activity-Based Groups will be things like hiking, cycling, volleyball, bowling, knitting, etc. Christian Growth Focus Groups will be bible studies, faith-based books, prayer groups, etc.
