What are Downtown Communities?

Downtown Communities are groups of people united through Christian fellowship, spiritual growth, and witness to a particular mission. People connect naturally around similar interests, hobbies, and experiences. Downtown Communities facilitate friendships through these connections. Scroll down to view our full list of Downtown Communities. Each Downtown Community reflects our passions and where we hope to bring forth change.

Why Downtown Communities?

We value relationships, spiritual growth and service. Our groups meet throughout Bentonville and its surrounding cities at church, homes, and public areas. We are mission-driven in a manner that is both enjoyable and manageable. From the youngest to the young at heart, anyone can be involved if they have a passion for transformation.

When can I join a Downtown Community?

Anytime. Email us to get connected.

Opportunities to Serve

The ministries of our church are able to occur because of the incredible passion and hard work of our volunteers. God calls us to serve others, faithfully administering his grace in many forms. Once a week, once a month, or even once a quarter, we have opportunities for you to get involved in ways that will create new relationships in your life, shape your character to look more like our Lord’s, and help to place a strong foundation within our church. .

My Christian Path

I’ve read too many Christian books that are fluff! How about you? Are you ready for the good stuff, the books that will let God transform the way you see the world? Are you ready to dive into a seminary-level education without having leave your house? This is the curriculum for you! First of all, let me state that there is no such thing as self-guided Christianity.  God is guiding us even if we can’t yet sense God in any way. Secondly, God is calling us to live and study in community. This curriculum is most powerful when you have another person, or a group of people with whom to discuss what you are learning. However, God is also calling us to dedicate our lives to the divine relationship. And a powerful way to do so is to devote time every day to reading and studying about, and with God. That is the reason I created this curriculum for you. I am praying that God will fill you with a deep desire to see and to hear in ever new ways.

Rev. Eric Meyer
