The New Testament contains nearly 100 references to Christians relating to “one another.” Half of the references are commands. We practice those commands most intentionally in the Field of Community.

Members of Lucy Baptist Church are “members of one another” (Romans 12:5, Ephesians 4:25). Like members of a physical body, members of a church are connected to one another. We must do much more than simply be in the same place at the same time once or twice a week.

Community Groups

Community groups give the best opportunity for multiple members to connect with one another. Ours meet on Sunday evenings. Most meet in homes.

A community groupis a small gathering of disciples committed to sharing life together through bible study, prayer, fellowship, accountability, and cooperative ministry, for the purpose of edifying the body of Christ.

In community groups, members accept and build up one another, bear one another’s burdens, encourage and exhort one another, pray for one another, and generally love and care for one another. Our community groups are designed “to help each of us grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ” (Ephesians 4:15). Strong community groups help the congregation grow, built up in love (Ephesians 4:15-16).

Let us connect you to a loving community group where you can grow together with other believers.


Disciple-making relationships enable members to connect one-to-one, or in small groups, to grow in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 2:16-20). A disciple is a lifelong learner-follower of Jesus Christ, committed to advancing the Kingdom of God by prayerfully sharing the Word of God through personal relationships. A disciple makes disciples who make disciples (2 Timothy 2:1-2).

We have men and women that meet in groups throughout the week. We also have individuals willing to meet with you one-on-one to help you follow Christ’s command to make disciples. Let us connect you to a disciple-maker.
