anchor bend Small Groups

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.

Leading a Small 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 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 Orientation 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.

Lunch and childcare is provided

If you can’t find the right group for you, maybe that’s God’s way of telling you that your next step in your spiritual journey is to lead a small group. Your small group isn’t about doing something new in your life, your life IS your small group. Whatever you are currently doing in life, just be intentional with your conversation and invite others to do it with you. Your group can be anything that you love to do! If you’ve never attended this short one and half hour training, join us as we answer all of your questions and equip you with all of the tools for you to lead a successful small group. Once you’ve attended any one of the trainings offered, you’re ready to lead a group for any up and coming semesters by simply registering your small group at the beginning of a new semester.
