Small Groups

Small groups are the heart of our church community — we are a church of small groups rather than simply a church with small groups. Small groups are basically gatherings of 8-12 people, typically meeting every week for 1-2 hours in someone's home, where folks spend time studying the Bible, sharing life together, praying for one another, and finding ways to serve our community.

Don't worry if you've never been to a small group before! You won't be put on the spot and asked to (1) pray out loud, (2) read out loud, or (3) answer theological questions. Everyone is at a different place in their spiritual journey and together we are learning what it looks like to be more like Jesus.

We have small groups that meet throughout the city, in Maryland, and in Virginia. We encourage you to find a group that is located near where you live or work, or that reflects your current life stage or special interest.

Fall groups begin the week of September 10th. You can join a group at any point, as long as they have room.

To join a group or learn more, you can use the search below and then contact the leader of the group directly.

For help locating the best group for you, search below or email Becca at .


You can use the filters below in blue to sort through small group options by Member Type (Coed, Women, Men, Couples), Area of Town (Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, Maryland & Virginia), and Day of the Week.

Columbia Heights - "Cicero in the City"

Friday Evening | 14th & Florida Ave NW Washington, DC

Cicero in the City: Not unlike our own day, the Roman statesman Cicero (106-43 BC) lived during a season of political and cultural turmoil. Renowned for his oratory, Cicero warned that Rome's republic was in deep decline, and he led an effort to retrieve and renew its political ideals. In Cicero in the City, we'll examine some of the great speeches and documents in the Western tradition, as we try to live out our sense of calling and vocation. Cicero in the City is a seeker-oriented group, aimed especially at those who are wrestling with life's big questions. We will meet monthly, at 7 pm Friday at my house. Our first meeting will be Friday, Sept. 29.

Columbia Heights Coed - Thursdays

Thursday Evening | 3460 14th Street NW Washington, DC

Co-led by Hunter & Arianne Barrington // Meets on Thursdays at 7:30pm // This semester we're studying the fundamentals of Christianity. We'll be focusing heavily on Jesus and his teachings with a lot of supplemental materials both from scripture and outside historical documents and writers. Topics will include things like what it means to be a Christian, what Jesus calls us to as Christians, how to love, and who Christ is. I'm really excited about it. Should be some great and challenging discussions. It's easy sometimes to assume things about our own faith, and this will be a chance to go back and revisit some of those assumptions and ask ourselves what we really believe.
