Gospel Friendships • Spiritual Growth • Multiplying Disciples


Community groups are smaller groups of people at Hiawatha that meet regularly during the school year to help foster gospel-centered learning and living. They value studying the Bible, praying together, eating together, serving one another and the greater church body, and moving towards a lost world together on mission. We have alternating-style groups (men and women meet separately on alternating weeks), traditional-mixed groups, men’s groups, women’s groups, and family style (dads, moms and kids all attend together with part of the night focused on just adult study).

Community groups are open to anyone, but we especially recommend that every regular attender of Hiawatha Church joins a community group. Growing in the gospel in community is a critical part of our spiritual development as Christians. Contact Pastor Spencer,, if you’re interested in being a part of one.
