Small groups are how we care for each other.
At its core, a small group is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. Your small group will not only be a place where you can grow and learn about Jesus, but it's your place to find encouragement and accountability as you navigate life's challenges.

What happens at a small group meeting?
You’ve probably seen Small Group meetings and not even realized it. A small group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying 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.
How often does a small group meet?
It's up to the individual group how often they meet. Some meet weekly while others meet every other 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 small group.
Where do small groups meet?
Small groups meet in people's homes or in local establishments throughout the North Hills.
Is there childcare available?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search for a group, the profile will indicate if childcare is available.
What if I don't like the first group I try?
The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. We encourage you to set a period of time (maybe three meetings) to try it out and, if you don't connect, just reach out to us and we'll help you find another group that may be a better fit. Don't worry, nobody's feelings will be hurt... it's all about helping find you the group that will help you grow.
Leading a Small Group
You don’t need to have it all together to lead a Small Group—you just have to be willing to let God use you. To host a group, you simply select a time and location to meet with others and share it. Then, we give you a few essential tools like first-time leader training and support throughout the semester. We believe God uses Small Groups to change people’s lives, and as a Small Group leader, you get to be a part of that.
