We grow stronger, together.
family church Small groups
Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. 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.
A SMALL GROUP
Join a small group
Family Church has both ongoing and semester long small groups that follow the Fall semester, Spring semester, and summer term. Check out the small group offerings below and check back often as new ones are added. We are excited for you to find the one that is right for you!
The Measure Of A Man! - This small group is for men who want to be godly men. True masculinity is not measured by strength, wealth, or position, but by twenty biblical qualities drawn from the Apostle Paul's letters to his young protégés Timothy and Titus. Inspiring, encouraging, and practical. We will be read and study the book "The Measure of a Man" (Twenty Attributes of a godly man) by Gene A. Getz. This classic book shows how you can measure up to Christ's fullness as a husband, father, and mentor to other men.

A SMALL GROUP
lead a small group
Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your small group successful through Leadership Training. We then list your group in our "Now Offered" directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
We are excited that you are answering the call to lead and care for others. Sign up HERE to begin your Small Group adventure. Once your application has been received, we will contact you with training instructions and materials.
