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.

Spring 2020 groups begin the week of January 19th and will meet until May 3rd. 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.


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 Julia Northrop, our Discipleship Coordinator, 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.

AAPI Small Group

Tuesday Evening

Led by Shengxi Li// The group meets bi-weekly// The affinity groups are the District Church's way of providing safe spaces of healing and restoration for people of color, with the ultimate goal of achieving greater unity and understanding within the larger multicultural church body. The AAPI small group convenes the second Tuesday of each month to give AAPI brothers and sisters a space to process and delve deeper into AAPI-specific topics and struggles. Because the group only meets once a month and will be topic-driven, we encourage those interested in this group to also join a neighborhood small group for regular sermon discussion.
