Small Groups

Small Groups

Life is better together. We believe that you can’t do life alone. At Generations, small groups are how a crowd becomes a community and how we grow in relationship with God and those around us. Groups focus their discussion time around Sunday's message, so we refer to them as sermon-based small groups.

 

You can always find discussion questions for our current and previous groups beginning here:

Future Small Group Opportunities

Our next great opportunity to try our small groups is NOW. We have something for everyone! You can check out the discussion questions above to get an idea about our sermon-based small groups. Click "Contact Us" and someone will touch base with you to share more information.

What Can I Expect?

Small groups are all about people taking next steps together. Groups meet weekly and have a leader that facilitates the discussion and offers up questions for the group to answer. The goal for all of your group meetings is to identify your next step and encourage each other in taking next steps.

Is childcare provided?

Every group is different. Some groups have the children attend and hire a sitter.  Some groups prefer to not have children at their meetings and each member provides their own childcare.  Our middle school and high school students have the opportunity to participate in GC YOUTH home groups.  For this series, they need to signup by March 28th as the groups start on the 29th.

While most group situations allow for children to be cared for with minimal cost or cost free, we recognize this isn't always a possibility. We may be able to assist in childcare costs while you go to small group. Some limitations apply, see the reimbursement application.

When and where do groups meet?

Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, and right here at Generations. If you are interested in hosting a group, please call Cindy Bliss our small group director at 910-228-2951. Every group chooses a different time to meet, so if a certain day of the week works better for you be sure to share that when our small group team member gives you a call.

How long do groups last?

Every group is different, most groups are ongoing sermon-based groups that take breaks around the holidays and take Summers off. Special short-term groups are made available throughout the year, these address finances, marriage enrichment, and those with questions about faith.
