We are better together. At Community Church Rancho, we really believe that statement. Our groups are great places to help you connect with Jesus, others, and your purpose.  As we gather and grow together, we come to realize that we are better together, and that’s what God wants for us. 

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we have a group that can help you take a next step.

[Rooted]     [Growth Groups]     [Growth Tracks]

Finding lasting connections at Community begins with Rooted.

Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to connect you to God, the church, and your purpose. Together, in a group of 8-12 people from all walks of life, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. These spiritual rhythms aren’t new or something the church recently created; every one of them is found in Acts 2 where the early church began. We will provide you with a facilitator who is trained to come alongside your group to help you get the most out of the experience. Rooted is available at least 2 times a year, beginning in January and September.

Ready to connect with God, others, and your purpose in Rooted? For more information, email Pastor Brett at


Growth Groups

Building on the foundation laid at Rooted, our Growth Groups are a great place to help you remain connected with Jesus, others, and your purpose. We value the many different backgrounds, ages, experiences, and ethnicities that make up our community. Being part of healthy, growing relationships centered around the message of Jesus helps us discover who God has created us to be and live it out.

Our growth groups meet in homes or the church throughout the week. They share meals, dive deeper into our sermon series, share struggles, and pray for one another. Have a question or ready to get connected? Email Pastor Brett for more info.


Growth Groups: Q&A

Do I need to complete Rooted before joining a Growth Group? 

No, anyone can jump into a Growth Group. We have groups for everyone, whether you’re new to faith, looking to go deeper, or need some help with specific issues in life. There’s a group for you!

What do Growth Groups do? 

Growth Groups meet regularly, in homes, coffee shops, parks and anywhere in-between to study God’s word, primarily through our weekly sermon discussion questions, practice the same spiritual rhythms experienced through Rooted, and live out the Jesus Mission together. 

How often do Growth Groups meet? 

Growth Groups tend to meet either weekly or bi-weekly on different days and times. Most groups meet for 10 weeks at a time with breaks built in throughout the year.

What resources do you offer Growth Group leaders? 

Quite a bit! From monthly leader emails, weekly discussion questions, coaching and regular leader gatherings, our team is committed to equipping leaders to shepherd well. Email our team if you are a leader looking for resources and support.  

Can I find more specialized care and support groups? 

Yes, we offer various support and care groups here on campus. And if we don’t have a specific support or care group here, we are happy to refer you to the right ministry in our area. For more info, email Pastor Brett.


Growth Tracks

Growth Tracks are learning experiences focused on equipping you to follow Jesus in specific and practical areas of life. While each one has its own unique objectives, what unites these classes is our desire to support you through practical areas of discipleship with concrete and actionable teaching.

Estate Planning // Sunday, May 7, 2:00-3:30pm // Learn to steward wisely the blessings God has entrusted to us through Estate Planning.

In this 90-minute workshop, we’ll outline the biblical support and practical action steps you can step into as a parent, grandparent, son or daughter, brother or sister, or simply as a friend, to leave behind a heritage, rather than simply an inheritance.
