Our faith formation doesn't happen in isolation from our community-building. Some of our groups at The Road Church grow organically and some are more structured. Some are study based and some focus on really fun shared experiences. If you are interested in joining/leading a small group or for pastoral support or prayer, please contact Jess.
Community Meal Sundays
The good, old potluck will never go out of style. Join us on the last Sunday of the month for food and community and an open table.
Groups running this winter...

Kidzone on Sundays
Learning about our connection to God, ourselves, each other and creation, we focus on Biblical stories, kid-friendly spiritual practices and fun! God's love and grace is often experienced relationally, and our trained volunteers & youth helpers prioritize life-giving relationships in Kidzone. Sunday gatherings begin with all-ages worship, then children are dismissed to Kidzone before the sermon.
Jr. Kidzone - Age 3 to early elementary school
Sr. Kidzone - Mid elementary to gr.5
Sixth graders are special! They are a part of the Road Youth but also have the option to participate in Kidzone on Sundays- best of both worlds!
Nursery - infants & toddlers stay with their caregivers
For all youth grades 6 to 12. God has made us for relationship – with our Heavenly Parent and with each other. Our youth gatherings are informal and relational – games, food, social activities and always time for good conversations about the Bible, our faith journeys, and life.
Road Youth gathers twice a month and is lead by our student intern from Ambrose University. Email Aiden for more info.
U of C Students
We are hoping to launch some on-campus meals and Bible studies this year...stay tuned!
If you are far from home and looking for some of that "sense of home", email Jess to connect with a family in our community to perhaps share a meal or a coffee visit.
Stay tuned for our next sandwich-making service for a local shelter.
