What are GCMs like?

GCMs are designed to reflect the patterns of our life. We sometimes gather in homes, other times at cafés, and everything in between. When we gather as GCMs, it can include everything from studying the Scriptures and prayer to serving our neighborhoods or even watching the game while enjoying a meal. Our gatherings are not defined by a day and time, but by an intentional pursuit of God and people in everyday life.

Who should be interested in joining?

Anyone. Each of us are wired to live in community and GCMs provide an opportunity to do just that. Whether you have questions about God or have been a Christian for years, GCMs provide an opportunity for you to mature in your knowledge and love for Jesus and His gospel.

What is the typical makeup?

GCMs are grouped geographically, but that’s about the only thing we have in common. Our communities are made of young and old, married and single, families with kids and college students. We love the idea of our communities being multi-aged, cross-generational, cross-cultural, and populated by people in all stages of their walk with Jesus.

When do GCMs meet? What is the level of commitment?

Living life in Willow Grove is not the same as life in Center City. Our pace of life, commitments, and culture can greatly differ. As such, we don’t expect the look and feel of each GCM to be the same. GCMs have been given the freedom to design their groups to match their lifestyles – including frequency. Our desire is that GCMs would meet with enough regularity for it to be a source of life and growth for those who belong to your group. The leaders of each GCM will be able to tell you more about their current structure.

How can I join a group?

Our hope is to have people join the GCM that is closest to where you live. We currently have eight groups meeting all around our city. Our GCMs are currently located in
  • Bucks County (2 groups)
  • Center City
  • Northeast Philadelphia (3 groups)
  • Upper Dublin
  • Willow Grove
If you’re interested in joining a GCM, please contact Pastor Binu Abraham to get connected with one of our leaders.
