The Bible shows us that life together is the best way to live. We’d love for you to join us in this journey of belonging. It’s not always easy, but it’s so worth it.
Here at Saylorville, we really believe that the Christian life is meant to be lived to the fullest, and that God designed us to live that kind of life together in biblical community. Cell Groups can be a great place to find these kinds of tight-knit, encouraging, challenging, and fun friendships.
Sunday mornings are great here at Saylorville, but a large and growing church can be a little overwhelming. And church is about so much more than what happens during a worship service – it’s about growing to be more like Jesus from Monday to Saturday too. So, no matter what age or stage of life you find yourself in right now, we’d love to get you connected to the community here at Saylorville.
HOW DO I JOIN A CELL GROUP?

Step 2: Show up at the next Group Connect. Group Connect is a one-hour orientation that will kick-start your Cell Group journey with people just like you who are looking to belong at Saylorville Church.
CAN I VISIT A CELL GROUP BEFORE JOINING?
We ask that everybody attends Group Connect before joining a Cell Group at Saylorville. Make plans to attend Group Connect before, or soon after, visiting a group for the first time. Group Connect meets monthly, so you’ll never have to wait more than a few weeks before the next one comes around. We’ll help you find a Cell Group fit within two weeks of attending Group Connect.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A CELL GROUP?
Growing spiritually doesn’t just happen when we know what Jesus says. It happens when we apply what he says. This happens best in the context of community. To grow spiritually, you have to be connected relationally. Cell Groups provide environments in which you will experience life change together with others on the journey of becoming more like Jesus.
WHAT IS A CELL GROUP?

WHAT DO CELL GROUPS DO?
Acts 2:42-47 – And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
2 Corinthians 3:18 – And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
Acts 16:5 – So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and they increased in numbers daily.
