why should i join a small group?

Grow in Your Faith

“Being new at the church and newly 'back to God', this small group has been instrumental in making me feel comfortable at church - for the first time in probably a decade - and in helping my spiritual growth, especially in terms of learning the Bible.” - VR, New to RED Church Small Groups 

Make New Friends

“There is absolutely no replacement for genuine relationships with others who live under the grace of Christ. We're meant to love each other, and we can't do that by ourselves.” - Josh, Young Professional

Hold One Another Accountable

“There is a level of accountability and fellowship that cannot be achieved simply by going to service on Sundays. If you're serious about your spiritual growth, you need to seriously join a small group.” - Greg, Young Professional

Short-Term Commitment

“Stop making up excuses for why you can’t do it. You can’t afford not to. It will be well worth the time and effort you put into it!”  - JP, Mother of Three

Be a Part of Something Bigger Than Yourself

“Come! RED is not just a service, it's a family. We're here for you, and we never want you to be alone. We can't get to know you unless we spend time together, so come on in!” - Brett, Active Military

WHAT TYPES OF SMALL GROUPS ARE THERE?

  • starting point groups

    Wondering about Jesus or the Bible? Starting Point Groups meet weekly for 8 to 12 weeks and provide an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a very safe, non-threatening environment. In fact, no question is off-limits. During this group, you will experience a taste of what it is like to be in community with other people on a similar journey.

  • short term groups

    Discover how to apply Scripture in your life today. Short-Term Groups meet for 6 to 12 weeks to discuss one main topic. Some groups take a deeper look at Sunday messages while others may focus on Bible study or prayer. These groups are great for people of all ages and backgrounds. We also frequently offer groups especially for youth (6th-12th grade), college students, men, and women. 

  • community Groups

    Grow spiritually and connect with others in community. Community Groups meet weekly over the course of multiple semesters to build strong friendships. These groups offer the opportunity for members to support and invest in each other on a relational and spiritual level. Members of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity are welcome.

what do you offer for kids?

are some groups suitable for families?

Some of our small groups do provide free childcare at the meeting location. Group leaders may ask parents to assist with childcare on a rotational basis. 


We also designate some groups as "family-friendly." These groups encourage families to bring some form of entertainment for their school-age children, while teens may participate in the group discussion. We do offer a youth small group especially for middle and high school students as well.
