Small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren't always easy to find. That's why small groups exist-to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
Fall Semester: September – November
Small Groups are how we care for each other.
At its core, a Small Group is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. We all need each other and that’s why we have Small Groups. Just like most things, you won’t know until you try, so check out the directory and connect with a Small Group today!
You don’t need to have it all together to lead a Small Group—you just have to be willing to let God use you. To host a group, you simply choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. Then, we give you a few essential tools like first-time leader training, a directory where others can find your group, and support throughout the semester. We believe God uses Small Groups to change people’s lives, and as a Small Group leader, you get to be a part of that.
The value of small groups continued from the story in Luke 5:
Compassion: This man was healed because his friends cared. It all starts with us caring about people who are hurting. Romans 15:2 says, “We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord” (NLT). God used these guys because they were sensitive to a friend’s need. And he’ll use us when we aren’t preoccupied with our own needs and start caring more about others than we do ourselves ~ Rick Warren
