Take your Next Step to engage in Community @ Black Rock (Starting Point, Community Groups & More)

Even though we cannot currently meet in person due to the COVID-19 crisis, you can still connect with a Community Life Group this Spring through Zoom online meetings. Learn more about each of our group options below.

When worship services on Sunday become the only purposeful time we spend together, we miss out on so much of what God designed a church family to be. Now is the perfect time to find the Community Life step that will equip and mobilize you to grow, give and receive as a valued part of the #BRfamily

Here are a variety of ways to take your next step into Community

Starting Point

Starting Point is a group-based, conversational environment where people can explore faith and form relationships with others on a similar quest.

Our spring term is currently underway but you can use this form to let us know you're interested in participating in Starting Point the next time it's offered.

Community Groups

These groups study the Bible together and encourage one another as they seek to apply spiritual truths to everyday life. These groups meet once a week for about two months at a time and are held in private homes throughout Southern Connecticut. Read more about Community Groups.

Living Free Groups

Living Free groups are organized by topic and provide support for those who are dealing with the effects of abuse & trauma, anger, chemical or other dependencies, childlessness or infant death, divorce, grief or other issues. Read more about Living Free Groups.

  • The spring term begins on April 30, and groups meet on Thursday nights. All group meetings will take place through video conferencing until the church building is reopened. For confidential information, email: care@blackrock.org

Parent Groups (Moms of the Rock/Dads of the Rock)

Throughout the school year we offer groups for moms and dads that provide practical and spiritual input as well as a place to connect with others who are committed to following Jesus in their parenting.

  • These groups are not currently meeting but if you'd like information about how to connect to them in the future, email Sarah at: spurdy@blackrock.org

Seniors of the Rock

Seniors of the Rock is for Black Rock adults who are 55+.

  • Group gatherings are currently on break due to COVID-19. If you'd like information on what this group offers or how to connect in the future, email Sharon: slemke@blackrock.org
