Connect in Small Groups

One of the ways God designed for us to live in freedom is to have people we fully trust partner with us in community. Along this journey together, small groups also seek to regularly impact others through serving our neighbors, our community and the world. We find freedom while experiencing and providing healing for a hurting world. 


The purpose of Small Groups is to:

  • CARE for one another

  • PRAY for one another

  • GROW with one another

  • SERVE with one another



Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a small group meeting?

A small group often looks like friends connecting, laughing, and eating together. There’s a focus on growing closer to each other and to Christ through support, studying the Bible, discussing Grace messages or some of the world’s finest speakers through RightNow Media. It’s working through challenges, celebrating milestones and serving people in our community. By participating in small groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation, prayerful support and actively helping others-together.

How often do groups meet?

We have two semesters each year — fall (Sept-Nov) and winter (Jan-May). Most groups meet 2-3 times per month and they stay connected between semesters through occasional service opportunities and fun events. 

Where do groups meet?

Groups meet in homes, restaurants, or coffee shops. We also meet for fun activities, to celebrate special occasions, and to serve our community or the world 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!
