This Is the Vital Church

The relational health of the church is its cardiovascular system. But the community of the church is not an end in itself. It is a means of grace to help us love God, love others and grow in faith-filled living.

In the summer of 2014, we "rebooted" our small groups in order to help increase the health of our relationships and the intentionality of our mission to be the church in Fort Collins.

Summitview's small groups are formed around the question, “Who are you called to reach?”

Answering this question — finding the “overlap” in our spheres of influence — will add purpose and clarity to the opportunities God has given each one of us (Acts 17:24-28).

We don’t want our small groups to be “one more thing” we do in our already frantic lives. We don’t want them to be one more item to cross off the Christian to-do list. Instead, we want them to be at the heart of the life Jesus has called us to. We want them to be valued as a place of true community, lasting significance and real ministry.

“We’re going to try to find in that overlap life and community.” Pastor Mitch explains the vision for Summitview’s small groups and the importance of answering the question, “Who are you called to reach?”

WATCH: Get Out the ‘No’ Knife

“Making the most of every opportunity is not the same as making the most opportunities.” If we want our small groups to fit in the natural flow of our lives, then we will have to say “no” and make the best use of our time.
