CORE Communities

"I found core communities to be a time when I could step back from the rest of the week, and just discuss my week as well as my faith. From an outing to Mission Taco, to conversations about St. Paul’s letters to the Romans, some of my best memories were made with my core community."

-Will McKay

Core Communities for non-student Community members

Core Communities are faith sharing groups that seek to help individuals and couples create and strengthen their connections with others and with God. These groups, which meet at a community member's house, offer an opportunity to engage the Scriptures and share life with other community members. Each Core Community consists of 8-10 people, and will meet every other week from September-November. If you are interested in joining a Core Community, please see the times and leaders below. If you have any questions, please contact Michael ( or at (618) 975-3937).
