WHAT ARE SMALL GROUPS?

Anchor Small Groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. Throughout the month, you can meet with a group of like-minded people who share your same interests and passions. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Winter Semester starts on January 6th!


Leading a small group

Leading a Small Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Small Group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Small Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.

Our next Anchor Small Groups semester starts January 6th. Now is the time to register your new Anchor Small Group. Registration for Anchor Small Group Leaders is open through December 22nd. For inspiration on starting up your own small group, check out the descriptions of our previous semester of Small Groups below.
