What Should I Expect?
You’ve probably seen small groups meeting and not even realized it. A small group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a small group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in small groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.
We believe real life change happens best within authentic relationships in a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
Lead a Group
Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
Is Childcare Provided?
Not all Groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare. Some groups will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements.
What will my Group study?
You can find the study options we offer here. Some Groups may decide to use their own study.
How often do Groups meet?
Our small groups will meet for three semesters a year—winter/spring, summer, and fall. During the semester, most groups meet once a week. Small groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
Where do Groups meet?
Small groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group.
