At OEFC, our small group ministries are called Community Groups. We offer a growing number of Community Groups that are made up of 3 to 17 people who want to experience a faith-based, Bible-centered community life where the gospel of Christ becomes real and life-changing.
We envision Olympic EFC as a large, expanding faith community that is made up of many smaller Community Groups on mission for God. In these groups, you can experience true fellowship, in-depth practical Bible study and the use of spiritual gifts following biblical guidelines. We desire that our Community Groups are missional in that each one serves people in Kitsap County who are in need or are seeking Jesus Christ.
Our Community Groups meet weekly or every other week beginning in the fall and running through May or June. Some also choose to gather for a meal or picnic one or more times during the summer.
Because we value being a church that multiplies disciples, groups and leaders, we help our Community Groups to study the Bible and pray together, serve the Lord as a community of faith, grow numerically and spiritually, and multiply into two or more Community Groups as God leads. We also encourage each Community Group to serve the church and the people in Kitsap County.
You may choose the Community Group you want or help form a new one with a qualified leadership team.
For more information on becoming part of an OEFC Community Group, contact the Church Office or our Pastor. We will be glad to discuss with you the Community Groups that we currently offer or help you partner with others who want to launch a new group.
