Connect in Group Life

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us in the journey. Connecting with others through small groups is a way to help each other find freedom and experience community.


The purpose of Group Life is to:

  • CARE for one another

  • PRAY for one another

  • RESTORE one another

  • SERVE with one another



Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a small group meeting?

A small group looks like friends at dinner, groups playing games, meeting in homes, 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.

How often do groups meet?

Our Groups meet two semesters a year— winter (Jan-March) and fall (Sept-Nov). During the semester, some meet every week, and some meet every other week. Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

Where do groups meet?

Groups meet in homes, restaurants, or coffee shops. Some groups meet for fun activities and to celebrate special occasions together. 

Is childcare provided?

This is decided on a group by group basis, but typically group members share the responsibility of watching the kids, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements.

What if I don’t like the first group I try?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. The simple strategy to finding success in Small Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
