Connecting with others is important to Jesus. The Bible is full of passages that show us the importance of experiencing life connected in meaningful relationships with others. A Small Group is you and two or more people who gather regularly (each week is best) in a home, office, coffee house, or anyplace that works, including doing something you’re interested in, and maybe already doing like hiking, softball, play dates, or another interest that lets you grow in your relationships with one another, in your understanding of the Bible, and in your relationship with God.
A great way to grow spiritually is to connect with people you already know so you can encourage and challenge each other as you explore the Bible together. You will grow in your love for God and your love for others.
Hosting a group is simple! Grab the resources we already have ready for you. Recruit, or simply invite a couple of friends to join you. Open your home, or find a place to meet (even after an activity). Work together to go through the materials and discussion questions we provide. You don’t have to be a teacher! In fact, we don’t want you to teach! We just want you to hang out with friends and talk about life and discuss how the Bible applies to what you’re all going through. We’d be glad to help you give it a try!
Ideally, we love for people to gather together with those they already know, but if that’s not an option for you, that’s okay! No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Use the button below and choose a group to try out.
Once you find a group you are interested in, send your contact information to the Small Group Leader. They will reach out to you within a few days to introduce themselves and tell you about the group. By the way, it’s okay to try out a couple of groups to find one that’s a good fit.
Small Groups typically study the same topic as the weekend message. There are also times groups can choose to do a study they would like, such as a book of the Bible or a Bible study on a topic relevant to the group. We want to help you better understand and apply God’s Word to your everyday life.
Small Groups meet in homes or other places within our communities at various days and times throughout the week. Groups consist of people just like you: friends, co-workers, family, neighbors, and others.
Some of our groups do offer childcare. Each group decides for themselves if and how they will or won’t offer childcare.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.
If one person falls, the other can reach out and help.
