They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42 NIV Welcome! In a church larger than 1000, it’s easy to feel “lost in the crowd.” Imagine what could happen if we would get connected with the people in our neighborhoods. Imagine the difference that caring for the emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational needs of one another could make! This is what makes a difference in individuals and our world!

That’s where Southside Small Groups come in.  Southside Small Groups consist of people who gather together frequently at church, in homes, and at restaurants and coffee shops. All for the purpose of building relationships and helping each other grow in their relationship with Christ. Within these small groups, strong relationships are formed that help support and encourage one another through good and bad times.  In addition, these groups foster opportunities to join together in serving the community, the church, and the world, making them a better place in Jesus’ name.

Southside Small Groups meet at various times and days throughout the week.  Find one that connects with your specific stage in life, area of common interest, and meets near you or that fits your schedule.
