Small Groups

Joining a small group is one of the most significant ways to grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus and with others. Because relationships require time and investment to develop, small groups are a way we commit to walking our spiritual journey with a smaller group of people.

If you’re looking for relationships, attending an event hosted by a community group or serving in a ministry are great places to start. Then, as relationships grow, you might consider joining or starting a small group with one or two other friends.

How to Join or Lead a Small Group

Our church has two cycles of all-church small groups, one in the fall and one in the winter. Each small group cycle runs for about 8 weeks, usually in conjunction with the start of a new season or sermon series. These small groups are opportunities to grow in community, go deeper in the study of the sermon series and Scriptures, and experience spiritual formation.

In addition, various small groups with a specific focus are offered throughout the year. For example, some community groups offer short-term small groups, like a men’s Bible study or a women’s book study. At different times, the pastors offer spiritual formation small groups for those exploring the Christian faith or looking to take a next step as a disciple-maker.

To inquire about leading a small group, reach out to Pastor Will at will@highrockacton.org.

We have a new round of Small Groups launching at the end of September 2019 that will run through October and November. Here are the current available groups:

WOMENS SMALL GROUP: All ladies are welcome to this small group, led by Andrea Coffman, Thursday evenings at the Stow Chapel. Childcare arrangements are possible. The goal of this group is to build connections among women, while going deeper in understanding the Bible. This group will use the Exodus small group curriculum that connects to the Fall sermon series and will begin the first week in October. If you're interested in joining, contact Andrea.

MENS SMALL GROUP: This small group, led by Doug Coffman, is for men, and will run parallel to the above womens group, Thursday evenings at the Stow Chapel. Childcare arrangements are possible. The goal of this group is to build connections among men while going deeper in our understanding of the Bible. This group will use the Exodus small group curriculum that connects to the Fall sermon series and will begin the first week in October. If you're interested in joining, contact Doug.

SUNDAY MIXED SMALL GROUP: This small group will be led by Elizabeth Cernoia and Peg Baldwin on Sunday afternoons after church at the Stow Chapel. This group is a mixture of ages and life-stages and all are welcome! The goal of this group is to build connections while going deeper in our understanding of the Bible. This group will use the Exodus small group curriculum that connects to the Fall sermon series and will begin the first week in October. If you're interested in joining, contact Elizabeth and/or Peg.
