*** What is the purpose of Small Groups ***
Small Groups are the place where you can connect with people of the same faith who share similar interests or life stages. Whether you're single or married, a new mom, an empty-nester, pursuing a carree or finally chasing that dream, there is a place where you can build relationships and increase your faith.
We have the groups broken down into 4 different categories.
* Teaching & Discussion
* Age Specific
* Dream Teams (Serving)
Groups typically meet for 12 weeks (meet from Sept 17-Dec 18). Feel free to browse through the categories and find the groups that would best fit your family and schedule. Register for the Small Group(s) below. Your Small Group Leader will contact you and get you plugged in!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What happens at a Small Group Meeting?
A: You've probably been in small groups meeting and not even realized it. A small group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studing a book or topic of interest. At its core, a small group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in small groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.
Q: How often does a Small Group meet?
A: Our Small Groups meet for two semesters a year - Fall and Spring. During the semester, most groups meet once a week. Small groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can't attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
Q: Where do Small Groups meet?
A: Small Groups happen throughout the local community. Merritt Island, Port St. John, Rockledge, Viera, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach and Cape Canveral. Typically in someone's home, but some meet at restuarnts, at the beach, or at a different location to mix things up. Contact the leader to get directions.
Q: Is child care available?
A: Childcare varies from group to group. When you search the directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
Q: Are there groups available for my kids?
A: Yes. Check out the Age Specific category.
Q: How do I get directions to the Small Group?
A: Once you have registered for a group, the Small Group Leader will contact you and provide the location of where the group is meeting.
Q: Are there any costs required to be apart of a Small Group?
A: Most all groups are free. The Small Group Leader will let you know if there is a nominal fee (ie if the group is meeting at a restuarant or if a study guide is needed).
Q: Can I register for more than one Small Group?
Q: What if I don't like the first group I try?
A: The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in small groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone-including you!
Q: Can I bring a friend to my Small Group?
A: Yes! Although we do encourage your friend to register on-line for the Small Group you attend so that the Leader can reachout to your friend and anwser any questions they may have and be on the look out for their arrival.
Q: How long does a typical Small Group stay together?
A: Most Small Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
Q: Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
