Coast Small Groups

Small 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.

Directory Opens on August 26th!

Groups start September 2nd!

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 Leadership 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.

Next Steps

Help your group move one step closer to Christ during the semester.

Freedom Groups

Freedom Groups are a Bible study and conference experience designed to help believers discover the abundant life that Jesus desires for them.

We believe in the free market system. So you, the Small Group Leader are fully empowered to chose the curriculum that you prefer. You can chose to do a book of the Bible, material listed below, a newly published book or one of the classics. The only requirement is that it be Biblical and in line with our church’s doctrine. So be encouraged! Whatever God has been laying on your heart for this semester, take it up and run with it! Just be sure to register your Group, go through Small Group Leader Training and after the training share the material with the Small Group Coach. If you are not sure by that time, you can always follow-up later!
