Small Groups



Purple icons indicate groups that have already filled for the year, but each blue group represents a space open for you!

Small Groups are a great context for transformation, drawing us closer to Christ and to one another.

The vision for these small groups is that they would be as inter-generational as possible, that we might reflect the diversity of the kingdom of God throughout our city while being a space where we are be able to share life and learn from folks different from us. From October to May, groups gathering around Seattle review and discuss the sermon from the previous Sunday. It is an opportunity to interact with the message and support one another in applying what we learned.

We are always still looking to add more groups. If you are interested in either hosting or facilitating next fall, fill out this form and someone from the Groups Team will be in touch with more information about hosting and facilitating!

Hosts open their homes and provide hospitality for a group, while Facilitators lead the discussion questions and guide the group.  The sermon-based discussion guide is sent out each week, so if you’re excited about God’s word and gathering people together, we believe you can lead.

Not to worry, if you miss a service, you can find the sermons here!

Icebreakers are a fun way to remove tension and get a group interacting when people don’t know each other very well. These are fun for any group but are particularly useful for groups that are just starting out.

Prayer is very important to group life; it will bring you closer to God and to each other. As a facilitator, modeling different types of prayer can help expand the prayer life of the group.

Service Opportunities Serve

One great way to bond is to do some sort of service project together. Whether it’s a one-time activity or something you commit to for a longer period, serving others together will help you learn and grow as a group.
