“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
WHAT IS A MISSIONAL COMMUNITY?
A Missional Community is a gathering of people who are committed to seeking and serving God together in three ways:
UP – In Scripture, worship, and prayer, we seek relationship with God
IN – In Christian fellowship, we seek relationship with one another in Christ.
OUT – In service and witness, we seek relationship with people outside our community of faith.
Each of these three elements are part of our efforts at Skyview to know Christ and to grow in him into mature followers for the sake of our city and our world.
Each Missional Community is unique. They gather in their own space, whether that space be a home, a community center, or a retirement residence. We are seeking to nurture three kinds of relationships: relationships with God, relationships of friendship and support, and relationships of outreach and service.
Our Missional Communities
This group meets every other week to share a potluck supper and prayer time with each other. We’re starting an outreach to Newport Harbours Retirement Residence, and more information will follow as we define that relationship.

Tuesday Youth and Young Adult Bible Study
This group meets weekly for Bible Study and prayer, with occasional outreaches!

You can speak to Pastor Ryan at email@example.com for more details.
Tuesday Ladies’ Bible Study
This women’s group meets bi-weekly for Bible Study and prayer, and are actively seeking how God may wish to use them to support other women in the community. If you’d like to join this group, please talk to Melaina Graham or Robyn Cabrera or contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Medium Adult’s Group
We exist as a community for those in the early years of post-university and early career adulthood, aged 24-35. Though not exclusive to this age group, this group is a place of belonging for those who still have lots of firsts to experience- career transitions, getting married, kids, buying a home, etc. We walk through all these together and provide a place for friendship, prayer, and connection. We meet alternating Thursdays for a meal, to play games, and to read scripture together. Our location rotates between various homes, but there is no pressure to host. Most locations are in the central part of the city. We call ourselves the “Medium Adults” - we’re not young, we’re not old, we’re medium! Talk to Kristen Kokura or contact the church office for more information.
