GROUPS

Small groups are where we get intentional about our faith and community, because we weren't made to do life alone. Groups will help you grow your relationship with God and build authentic relationship with others.

Groups meet for 8-10 week seasons and focus on: Bible studies, Sermon Deep Dives, Book Studies

We believe that we were created to be in community. Groups are a way to grow intentionally in our faith while connecting with others.
Why? We're called as Christians to be Jesus-followers and to make disciples.

START A GROUP

One of the BEST ways to do that is to host or lead a small group by circling up with others who are also growing in their relationship with God. You don’t have to be a pastor or have a theology degree to do just that – let God use you to bring community together. We'll resource and encourage you along the way.

2 WAYS TO START A GROUP:

1. HOST:
Bring your friends together and circle up around a study. Use our group resources, but you can host a group of your friends at your own pace.

2. LEAD:
Become a group facilitator of an official Midtown group. We’ll work alongside you to train, equip and encourage you as you create community.
