At Generations, small groups are how a crowd becomes a community and how we grow in relationship with God and those around us. We have something for everyone!
You can find some descriptions of our types of groups on this page. Our sermon-based Groups focus their discussion time around Sunday's message.
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.
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.
While most group situations allow for children to be cared for with minimal cost or no cost, we recognize this isn't always a possibility. We may be able to assist with childcare costs while you go to small group. Some limitations apply--see the reimbursement application.
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 910-454-9302 ext. 108. 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.
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.
This is a 40's and up group of singles and couples. This is a mixed gender group that will come together on Tuesday nights at the home of Matt and Ramona in Southport to discuss the Sermon-Based questions.
