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

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 is a group-based, conversational environment where people can explore faith and form relationships with others on a similar quest. The next term starts Sunday September 16 with groups meeting at 10:00 & 11:30am. Sign Up Now


COMMUNITY 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. The next term starts September 16. Read more about Community Groups Here or FIND & CONTACT A GROUP.


LIVING FREE GROUPS meet on Thursday evenings and provide a safe place to find healing, hope and support from the effects of abuse and trauma, childlessness and infant death, divorce, anger, grief, anxiety and depression and chemical or other dependencies. Groups start September 20. Sign Up Now

For confidential questions, contact Pastor Gaylord at glemke@blackrock.org


PARENTS’ GROUPS (Moms of the Rock/Dads of the Rock) provide practical and spiritual input for this unique life stage. Being the parent of a young child is time-consuming and sometimes isolating. Building relationships with other parents committed to following Jesus in their parenting strengthens families. Dads of the Rock meets every other Saturday morning and Moms of the Rock meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Read more about Parents’ Groups Here or sign up for a group (MOMS | DADS)


SENIORS OF THE ROCK is a new resource for Black Rock senior adults (55+) looking for connection and involvement featuring low cost catered luncheons the first Friday of each month, 12:00-2:00pm, in Woodruff Hall starting September 7. Join us to learn about our new Bible study, events for active seniors and service opportunities! SIGN UP NOW
