We’re glad you are interested in finding out about our Community Group ministry. Here at Peninsula we place a high priority on being involved in a small group.
It is sometimes difficult to establish relationships with others and you may feel a bit lost on Sunday mornings with so many people going in different directions. That’s why we encourage everyone to get connected with others in a more relational setting with a community group.
It is in a small group environment that a person can really see their needs being met and can learn how to follow Jesus more closely. Just imagine what God can do in people’s lives when they begin to "rub shoulders" with one another, pray together and seek God’s will.
We hope that the following information will help answer any questions you may have. We encourage you to check out this opportunity by visiting one of our Community Groups . And, we’d love to talk with you about which group might be the best fit for you. Please contact Joei and Les Sheckman at 310.375.5254 or send them an email.

FAQs about Community Groups
What do you do in a Community Group?
The groups focus on doing three things: Studying the Bible, Praying for one another and Enjoying one another’s company.
Will I be asked to answer questions or pray out loud?
Relax! These are safe places for everyone to grow I their spiritual walk. No one will make you do what you are not comfortable doing. It’s just a bunch of flawed people walking together through life.
How often does a Community Group meet and how long does the group time last?
Most Community Groups meet every other week with the average meeting lasting from 1½ to 2 hours.
What about child care?
Each Care Group handles child care in a way that suits that group best. However, we offer the following suggestions: parents can switch off watching the children from week to week, parents share in hiring a baby-sitter or each family hires a baby-sitter for their own children.
