Transformation happens when we're known and loved in a Jesus-centered community.
Meadowbrook Communities are communities of men and women seeking to follow Jesus together, build real friendships, help each other through the ups and downs of life, and bless our neighbors.
Our church's hope is that we will become more like Jesus together for the sake of our world. Meadowbrook Communities are the primary soil in which this kind of growth happens.
Each community is united by a desire to become more and more like Jesus, to cultivate real friendship, and to love and serve the world around them. They meet regularly throughout the Eastside...from Woodinville to Sammamish, from Bellevue to the Snoqualmie Valley.
How do I join a Meadowbrook Community?
Meadowbrook Communities are “open” throughout the year so that you can join anytime. To join, check out our options, find a group that may work for you, contact the leader, and then visit the community to see if it's the right fit. To get started, visit our "Find a Community" page.
How can I learn more if I’m not quite sure I’m ready to join a community?
Attend our next "Meet Meadowbrook" lunch to learn more about our church and Meadowbrook Communities. You can also meet with our leaders to learn more or even visit a community without any pressure to commit.
Can I try different communities?
Yes! You can visit different communities to see which one might be the right fit and have rhythms that fit your life. As you do this, we’d encourage you to be careful not to make decisions as a “consumer” (what’s most comfortable for me) and instead to do it prayerfully, asking God where He would lead you.
Are communities organized by age group or stage of life?
While some communities may naturally draw people in similar stages of life, we hope communities will be open to all generations. We believe we have a lot to learn from each other and are better together across generations.
What do communities actually do each week?
Meadowbrook Communities engage in some core rhythms that help them grow in love for each other, be formed by the Gospel, and be sent to reach their neighbors. It may vary from week to week, but they’ll often share meals together, pray together, serve one another and others in need, and grow together through God’s Word. Because a Meadowbrook Community is not defined by a weekly meeting, they also often find themselves connecting throughout the week in many other ways.
Can I lead a community?
Yes! We need more leaders so that we can start new communities and make more space at the table for new people. We’d love to talk more, see if you’re ready to lead a community, and help you take the next step. In most cases, if it’s the right fit for you, we’d invite you to start as an apprentice leader in an existing group so that you can see first-hand what MCs are about and can be equipped to co-lead a community in the future. Let us know if you’re interested.
What if I’m not a Christian? Can I still participate?
Yes! If you’re interested in the Christian faith, this is a great way to learn more about the way of Jesus.
