Missional Communities

Demonstrate & Declare the Good News Together
 

Usually, our missional communities gather weekly
in our homes for a meal. 

As we navigate COVID-19 together, we are finding ways to stay connected even as we practice social distancing.

What Is a Missional Community (MC)?

At Soma Grand Rapids Church, a Missional Community is a group of people who live as a Family of Servant Witnesses sent as disciples of Jesus who make disciples. MCies are groups of people who make a commitment to submit to Jesus in all of life. They commit to learning to love one another as family, serve one another and the under-resourced in our midst, and be a witness to the good news of Jesus Christ, both to one another and the world around them.

We invite friends, neighbors, coworkers, and others into the MC family because we have been invited into the ultimate heavenly family. As a MC grows and more people are added, apprentice leaders are raised up and sent out to start another MC. Every time a MC multiplies, there is opportunity for more people in our city to encounter the life giving Jesus.
