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.

Summer groups begin early June. You can join a group at any point, as long as they have room.

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.

New Groups for Summer 2018

Alpha - A 12-part video series with weekly discussion-based sessions geared toward those looking for a safe, honest space to explore big questions surrounding the Christian faith. We welcome you to bring your questions, or if you’ve already made a commitment to Christ, pray about who God may be nudging you to invite in your work or social circles -- and for you to come along with them if you are able! (1 group, starts week of June 13)

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.
