City groups are our way of building dreams as well as healthy relationships in an intimate setting.
City Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. 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.
Our City Groups meet for three semesters a year—winter/spring, summer and fall. During the semester, groups meet weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
- WHAT HAPPENS AT A SMALL GROUP MEETING?
You’ve probably seen City Groups meeting and not even realized it. A City Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a City Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in City Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.
- HOW OFTEN DOES A SMALL GROUP MEET?
Our small groups meet for three semesters a year—winter/spring, summer and fall. During the semester, groups meet weekly, biweekly or monthly. Small groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.
- WHERE DO SMALL GROUPS MEET?
Small groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Small groups happen throughout Orlando.
- HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL SMALL GROUP STAY TOGETHER?
Most small groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
- IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
