Sections

A section community is made up of people who connect weekly by sitting in the same section of the auditorium when they come to church. This mid-sized group helps to make our big church feel smaller!

Why sections?

One of the core values of our church is that we do life together -- because when we connect relationally, we are able to grow spiritually.

Here at Centerpoint Church, we have big weekend services and small groups throughout the week. Many people have found a home in a small group, but many haven’t. It’s challenging for many of our people to make the jump from a massive crowd in our auditorium to a small group of ten people or so in a stranger’s living room. We find that the balance between big church and small groups is in what we call Sections.

Sections are made up of people who connect weekly by sitting in the same area of the auditorium during our weekend Worship Experiences. These mid-sized groups help to make our big church feel smaller. A church of any size can feel intimidating to a newcomer and that becomes even more significant in the large format weekend services that we have at Centerpoint Church. By separating the auditorium into smaller sections, we are able to more easily create an atmosphere where people can connect and build relationships with others that sit near them each week.

Sections provide a way of doing life together and building community. There will be opportunities for social gatherings and outreach projects where you’ll get to hang out, serve, and do life with one another. We believe Sections help us to live out the belief that “we weren’t meant to live life alone.”
