ABOUT GROUPS

People grow best when they are connected in healthy small groups. We were never intended to live life alone, but we were created for relationships.

Groups are your source of friendship and support at Southside Church. They are your key to developing relationships with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with Christ. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or any other place you can imagine. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Southside Church has to offer until you connect in a life group!

We are a community who want to follow Jesus. We would love you to come and be amongst us.


WHAT ARE GROUPS

Groups are made of 5-6 couples or eight to twelve individuals who gather to study God’s Word and discuss the issues and challenges of life that we all face. It is also where we pray and care for one another and where you are missed when you are not there.

Groups come in all shapes and sizes – married couples, singles, men’s, women’s, children, no children, workplace, young adult or empty nesters.


PURPOSE OF GROUPS

Life change can happen here.

There are five essentials components you will see in our small groups:

  • Life Change
  • Cultivate Relationships
  • Promote Participation
  • Provide Care
  • Identify Future Leaders

HOW TO JOIN A GROUP
We know it can be difficult to take the next step from a large group environment like our weekend worship experience to a smaller setting. That’s why we would like to offer a few suggestions to help.

 

One great way to get your feet wet, is serving in the church. Volunteering is a great way to meet people who are already plugged into a small group.VIEW SERVING OPPORTUNITIES
