Small Groups

Life is better connected.

Why join a small group?

Growing spiritually doesn’t happen when we know what Jesus says. It happens when we apply what he says. Application happens best within the context of community. To grow spiritually, you have to experience life with other people.

In a Small Group, eight to twelve adults in the same stage of life and area of town meet regularly to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. You’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you learn and discover in the Bible, as you encourage others to do the same.

    Is Childcare Provided?

    Not all groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Be sure to specify childcare available in the online group search if you need 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 if I don't like my group?

    Sorry, no take-backs. Just kidding! We want you to feel comfortable and connect with your group. If you’re just not “feeling it” with your current group, feel free to reach out to another group and begin attending there. It would be nice if you let your current group leader know you’re going to a different group – don’t worry, they won’t try to bribe you to stay or take you for a ride on guilt highway.
