join a small group


We've designed our Small Groups to have two, simple purposes: to help us grow closer to God and the Bible, and to help us do life together, better.  Sharing life through a community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us.  That’s why small groups exist- to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible.

lead a group

Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Leading a group is simple—choose a topic, sermon-based or one that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your small group successful through Leadership Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process. Download Host Guide to learn more about hosting your very own Small Group!

join a group

When you join a small group, it goes from simply being a small group, to your small group. And in your small group, you belong! It will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name but care about what is happening in your life. It is through doing life together that our big problems become smaller and God uses others to bring healing, support, and encouragement to our lives. Join a small group today!

how does small groups work?

">You're not going to believe how simple this is! You start by signing up for a group online. We suggest joining a group based on your current station-in-life. For example, if you're married with kids, join a group with others who are also married with kids. Once you've signed up for a group, expect a formal welcome call or email from the host or co-host within 24-48 hours. Once you've joined the group by attending your first meeting, expect to spend the next 12 weeks doing life with your group, growing closer to God and one another. That's it!
