Fall Small Groups Begin This September
Although we are physically distant from each other right now, it is so important to stay relationally and spiritually connected. 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
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 as you take your next step. 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.
If you would like to meet in person, please limit your group to only 10 people or less at this time.
Registration is open!
Please fill out the information below and we will be in touch.
**Smalls Groups will meet every week during this season, even during weeks of Deeper Life in order to ensure a complete 13 week semester.
what happens at a small group meeting?
You’ve probably seen Small Groups 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 does a small group 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 meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
where do small groups meet?
Small Groups happen in-person throughout the city of Louisville and surrounding areas, and online through digital meeting applications like Zoom or Google Hangouts.
how long does a typical small group stay together?
Most Small 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 the first group i try?
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!
