The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus around people that can support you in taking your next steps. We believe life is better when you live in community. There are Group options available for Married, Coed, Men’s and Women’s. We want to help you find the best fit.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a small group?
You’ve probably seen a Small Group meeting and not even realized it. A Small Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, 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 small groups meet?
Our Small Groups meet for three semesters a year—winter/spring, summer, and fall. During the semester, most groups meet once a week. Small Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
Where do small groups meet?
Small groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Small Groups happen throughout the city of San Antonio with the largest availability in the Stone Oak area.
How long do small groups meet?
Most groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
Is there childcare available?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
What if I don't like my group?
The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. 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!
Lead A Group
Leading a Small Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic 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.Register Your Group
If you’re leading for the first time, make plans to attend our Leadership Training available where you will be equipped to lead well.
