Gospel Community Groups


Gospel Community Groups (or GCs) are made of 5-6 couples or eight to twelve individuals who gather to study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life that we all face. It is also where we pray and care for one another and where you are missed when you are not there. GCs come in all shapes and sizes – married couples, singles, men’s, women’s, children, no children, workplace, young adult or empty nesters.

There are five essentials components you will see in our small groups:

  • Life change
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Promote participation
  • Provide care
  • Identify future leaders

We know it can be difficult to take the next step from a large group environment like our weekend worship experience to a smaller setting. That’s why we have summarized below the current GCs that we have in GEM. You can browse through the description of each GC and decide which group fits you the most. Once you’ve decided the group, please contact the GC co-ordinator so that you can be plugged in at the right timing.

About the leader:

Hello! My name is Eunice Kwon. I’ve been serving Children’s Ministry for years and am greatly interested in reaching out children & young people. This year I started MDiv. course at Torch Trinity.

Why I started this group:

I’d love to join a group where I can share my life & vision & interests with fellow brothers and sisters. As my vision & focus are in teaching and outreaching children & young generation, I’ve looked for a suitable group but couldn’t find any. So I’d like to start a new CG with people of similar interests & vision.”

Jesus loves you.
