group is where faith and life come together, where authentic community is developed and where faith is strengthened. At Spring Branch Community Church, our vision is to bring real faith and real life together. Small groups are designed to help do just that. In order to reach our full potential spiritually, we must connect relationally.
We want to help get you connected to other people at Spring Branch in a Small Group.
Real faith … Real Life … Together.
The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus around people that can support you in taking your next steps. We believe life is better when you live in community. There are Group options available all ages and walks of life. We want to help you find the best fit.
Research shows that doing life alone is dangerous. What if you had a group of trusted friends where you could study and grow in your faith together, all the while developing great friendships that make your life better? Jesus’ teaching is clear: You and I need to connect relationally.
A Small Group is comprised of six to 14 people in a similar stage of life who meet at someone’s home, or at a coffee shop. Discuss real-life challenges from a biblical perspective. Pray together. Look out for one another. Small Groups are a primary way we make big church small — they are where life connection happens best!
Each meeting lasts about an hour and a half. There are three main components to a meeting:
1) Connect with the other members.
2) Discuss a relevant topic from a biblical perspective.
3) Pray for and with each other.
Three ways to join a group
I am interested in joining a Small Group
Attend Our Small Group Open House
Small Group Open Houses are held 3 times a year. These give you the opportunity to meet Small Group Leaders, meet others attending Life Groups, and hear more about the ministry. The next Open House will be held on Sunday, April 30th at 10:05 a.m. in the Fireside room. Food and beverages will be provided.
The 6-Week Trial Run (Best Option)
The best way to join a Small Group is to get together with 5-14 of your friends (they don’t even have to be from Spring Branch) and agree to try our church series – developed by Michael Simone and Derek Hirtz. After the 6-Week Trial Run, your group decides its next steps. Facilitating a Trial Run is VERY EASY. We provide you with nearly everything you need. Simply press play on the video and ask the provided study questions. You do not have to know how to answer the questions; you just need to be willing to gather the people and ask the provided questions.
Openings in Pre-existing Groups
If the other options do not work, we may have a few openings in our pre-existing groups. Out of our 17 Life Groups, here are the groups with openings:
