What is a COM or Community on Mission?
DISCIPLES MAKING DISCIPLES TOGETHER!
We believe that the Gospel connects every Christian into people of COMMUNITY and MISSION. When God saves us, He calls us out to be His family, the church (Community).
God not only calls us, but "sends" us into the world to make disciples (Mission).
So, Christians are simultaneously a "called" and "sent" people. At Legacy West, we believe that these two functions of the church are inseparable. In other words, we want to produce small communities of people who are on mission.
COMMUNITIES ON MISSION EXIST TO:
  • Worship God
  • Live in Gospel-centered community
  • Take the Gospel to West Knoxville.
A COM is a group of people centered around the Gospel (Community), seeking to take the Gospel to Knoxville (Mission). These groups will meet in homes and will have a focus to exist not for themselves, but to constantly remember that Christians are not only called, but sent.
WHEN AND HOW OFTEN DO COMMUNITY GROUPS MEET?
We meet once per week. Each group sets its own meeting night. Click the button at the top of this page to find out these details.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We begin by enjoying a meal together. By the time the meal is done, we have usually found plenty to talk about. Following the meal, we typically study a passage of scripture that is associated with the time in our community Bible reading (CBRJ) or the teaching at Legacy West from the previous Sunday.
ARE CHILDREN WELCOME?
Absolutely. Children is one thing our Community Groups tend to have a lot of! The children join us for the meal then they then play together or watch a movie in a nearby room while the adults share in conversation and study the Bible together.
IS THERE MORE TO COMMUNITY GROUP THAN THE WEEKLY MEETING?
We view our community group as a way of sharing life together. Weekly meetings are just one of many opportunities that we spend together. We invite you to connect with us to get to know some of the other ways we enjoy community together. And you don't have to be afraid that by joining a Community Group that you'll never see the members of the other community groups. We do a lot together as well.
