JOIN A SMALL GROUP
No one is meant to do life alone. God has crafted us for relationships. If you're looking to get to know some people in our community in a context that extends beyond Sundays, we'd love for you to join a Small Group.
Though each of our Small Groups have a different style and mix of different kinds of people, they all practice the ways we live out our values as a church. Small groups are a great way to meet new people, serve others, and experience genuine community.
Groups are typically gatherings of 5-10 people that meet weekly in neighborhoods throughout the city to discuss the issues and challenges of life, read the Bible, and pray together. Take a look at the groups below, and feel free to email the leader with any questions.
Don Torrance, Small Groups Coach
Caroline Hughes, Small Groups Coach
We are a group that blends couples, singles, former atheists, and life long Christians. We welcome everyone's different perspectives and relish the opportunity to walk in other people's shoes. Our creative atmosphere centers on thoughtful discussion of scripture, contemporary events and good food! We typically meet off of the Lorimer L / Metropolitan G stop.
This is a diverse group that loves to eat together and have great discussions about life, love and faith in NYC. Bed-Stuy, Do or Die. Need we say more? Families with young ones are more than welcome in this group.
A mix of singles, couples, professionals and artists, all sharing a meal and studying scripture together. Everyone is welcome to join us as we read, discuss, pray and grow together each week.
Kensington / Ditmas Park
As a generationally, racially, and economically diverse group, we grow in our depth of love and care for meeting each other's needs through open and honest discussion and confession. We laugh loud, learn often and share the burdens and joys of one another. We also like to eat. Get to us via the F, G, B or Q trains to the Ditmas/Kensington/Flatbush area.
We're still a pretty new group of new graduates, couples and singles all looking to grow together in community through prayer, scripture, and honest conversation. We like to be flexible and want families with young children to feel welcome! Join us as we grow this group together and serve our neighborhood and each other. We're easy to get to from the R, F and G trains.
We are a chatty, thoughtful group that incorporates rhythms of contemplative prayer, honest conversation, as well as thoughtful study in supportive community. If anyone identifies as LGBTQ+, this will be a particularly welcoming space. We meet off the R, 2,3,4,5 trains, but we hail from all over Brooklyn.
We are an open, talkative group that enjoys both serious discussions and hanging out having fun. We read books on various spiritual subjects together, or sometimes study books of the Bible. We meet on Monday evenings in the old Sony building in Midtown Manhattan (550 Madison Ave) and would love for you to join us.
We're a group serving families with kids of all ages, especially young ones. If family life makes it difficult for you to commit to a weekly evening group, then join us once a month on a Saturday to meet other families, build community, and learn to pray for and support each other as parents. Everyone who is able is asked to pitch in a small amount to help pay for babysitting, so parents are able to focus on their own spiritual growth.
A little separate from a Small Group, but Writer's Guild is a place to flex some creative muscles... Beginners, established writers, poets, essayists, bloggers--anyone who has a passion for writing and wants to develop your talent: join our community! We'll support and encourage you to nurture your creativity and passion. Bring a piece you're working on if you would like to read and receive feedback, or come prepared to listen to others.
