community life

Joining a group within Community Life will help you connect with others (gather), change to be more like Christ (grow), and cultivate a heart for others (go).  

  • Life groups

    Life Groups move people from the Sunday morning teaching and worship environment to meeting in a small group in a member's home for fellowship, prayer, and study. The essential task of a Life Group is to know one another by asking what God is doing in and through them each week.  We strive to apply Biblical truths to our daily lives, serve as a group, and support and encourage each other through prayer.


    It's never too late to join a Life Group.  Click HERE to view available groups and to email the leader directly.  Still can't find a group?  Then START a group.  Training is provided as well as the first 8-week curriculum.  Contact lifegroups@burkecommunity.com for more info.

  • Quick connect

    Quick Connect groups meet for 8 sessions (once a week) focusing on friendships and building connections.  These groups serve as an introduction to those who are new to small groups or who are uncertain about committing to a long-term group.  The group will be led through the Community study which focuses on pursuing God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders.  


    Quick Connect groups are held twice a year (Spring and Fall).  Please email Ramona at lifegroups@burkecommunity.com for more information and to be notified when Quick Connect registration opens.
