2:42 groups

Community is vital to the Christian life and an integral part of spiritual development.

Group study, discussion, sharing, prayers and fellowship are the foundations of every Small Group.

In Small Groups people can connect in a small private setting, make friendships and support each other. By studying God’s Word together, the group will experience spiritual growth and share applications of their beliefs.

Benefits of Joining a Small Group

“2:42 groups” (from Acts 2:42) at Jamul Community Church are small groups that aim to develop spiritual community. They do not replace Sunday morning worship where the local body in its diversity unites around the Word and the Lords Supper. Small groups flow out of Sunday worship offering a focused place to pursue our call to community, fellowship, and mutual love for the glory of God. 


Small groups give us opportunities to learn from each other (Proverbs 27:17). We need Christian friends to challenge us as we apply God’s word to our everyday lives (Heb 3:12-13). As our relationships deepen so do opportunities for mutual edification (Heb 10:24).

Bible Study

We don’t raise our hands to ask questions in the middle of a sermon, but you can in a small group. Small groups are great places to ask questions and search God’s word together just like the Bereans in Acts 17:11. Groups study books of the bible, read books on Christian living, and watch Christian teaching videos.


In the New Testament, praying together was a regular part of community life (Acts 4:24).  Small groups pray for each other’s specific needs and those of the broader community.  Praying together also helps us come to the throne of grace through praise, thanksgiving, and worship.


It can be hard to really connect in a large group setting. Small groups are a great place for people to get to know each other. We really do need each other (Rom 12:4-5). Our mutual bond with Christ unites us together with other believers in a way that expresses itself in affectionate fellowship (Eph 2:19-22).


Small groups are places to help each other with needs and concerns (Phil 2:4). Galatians 6:2 directs us to “bear each other’s burdens.” Our care for each other reflects God’s care and love for us.
