Scatter with Purpose

Missional communities are home- and community-based small groups of people from all ages and stages of life. The members of each Missional Community work to see other people grow more and more like Jesus Christ: learning the gospel (knowledge), loving the gospel (affections and ambitions), and living out the gospel (actions and practices).
Our missional communities regularly break down the Sunday morning sermon text in greater detail (head). But on any given week they may also spend an evening aligning their hearts and their prayers with God’s desires for the world (heart). Groups also make a habit of heading into the community for a night of relationship building and community service (hands). In all these thing, the people of our missional communities live out the story of the Bible, together.

The point is simple: missional communities are the primary way in which ARCC facilitates people growing more and more like Jesus.  To find your place in a missional community, or to learn more about our missional communities, email Davis.

The Lacey Family

We are Charis and Davis Lacey. We love Missional Communities, because it was largely through small groups such as these that we both came to love the Lord and long to see him made known among the nations. What fun it is to share meals, have conversations, and wrestle with tough questions with a group that includes skeptics, brand-new Christians, and mature believers. We’d love to have you join us as we study the Scriptures, as we pray together, and as we venture into our community to be a blessing to others.

The Patton Family

Drs. Jordan and Elizabeth Patton recently relocated to Blue Ridge, GA (Elizabeth’s home town). When they aren’t busy caring for their two daughters or loving on members of their Missional Community, the Pattons both serve the people of North GA through their practice of medicine. They love the gospel-centeredness and sound Bible teaching of Autumn Ridge Community Church, and they want their Missional Community to be an extension of that ministry.
