grow small

In a big church, you have to

We do that by connecting in smaller groups throughout the week. These groups are fostering genuine connection for members, offering a safe community where we are known and loved, and spurring us on to be more like Christ.

What's unique about a Harvest Group? Each group has its own personality, but like Harvest, each holds to the four core values: studying the Word, serving one another, celebrating together, and taking next steps spiritually and relationally. We're hardwired by God for connection, so we design environments that help us connect with each other.

What kind of connection are you craving?

Test drive a small group with an

on-campus group

We've found that one of the best ways to step into joining a Harvest Group is through our on-campus Tuesday night experiences. We offer various options throughout the year. Some on-campus groups are specifically designed to launch new groups. Other times the groups are centered around a class or a sermon series. The evening consists of instructional time and group discussion. VIEW CURRENT OFFERINGS

Perks of On-Campus Groups

  • Ease of knowing others in the room are beginning their groups journey just like you

  • Curriculum is directed from the front of the room, but discussion is facilitated at a table where you can get to know a handful of people on a deeper level

  • Childcare is available on site

  • When it is over, if you connected well with your group, you'll have the option to continue growing together


If Tuesdays just won't work for you, do not despair! We have some other avenues to help you get connected to a Harvest Group! CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED

Holly and friends-01.png
"Some of the women I met through small groups years ago have become like sisters to me. We learned to be vulnerable and share in our deepest pain and heartache with one another, but we also delighted in sharing in each other's joys! We have encouraged one another on in growth and accountability. My life wouldn't be what it is today without their love and support."

Leadership

Opportunities

Here's what you don't have to be to successfully lead a small group:

  • A great public speaker

  • An expert in spiritual matters

  • Experienced at teaching or leading in a church 

 

Think of leading more like guiding or shepherding. Each group needs a leader that loves the members and knows what's going on in their lives, wants to be more like Christ and help others do the same, and is fostering safety, connection and vulnerability. The goal is to help people connect with others and God, while also discovering their own next step.

We resource leaders and walk alongside them when inevitable obstacles arise so they are able to lead others through it. If you're interested, definitely check out our next Rise Up Leader Training.
