A Small Group is a gathering of around 15-20 people who meet twice a month (or more) for food, fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. Most groups meet in homes or coffee shops. We have groups for people of all ages and stages of life. Providence Small Groups are for anyone who wants to connect with others and grow deeper in their Christian faith.
What To Expect
Ideally, Small Groups meet in the home of one of the group members. Some of our Offer Groups also meet in restaurants or other public locations. Anywhere with room!
What does a typical meeting look like?
In a Small Group, people generally take turns hosting and facilitating the discussion. Most groups meet twice a month for an hour to an hour-and-a-half (decided by the group). Although all groups are designed uniquely, a typical Small Group meeting might be:
- 6:30 p.m. Food (snacks or more)
- 7:00 p.m. Study & discussion
- 7:45 p.m. Prayer
- 8:00 p.m. End
What happens on the weeks in-between?
On off weeks, Small Group participants may keep this time as a date night with their spouse, a special event with children, time for a good book, or a walk in the park.
What is expected of me?
We encourage everyone to participate as much as they feel comfortable. You will not be put on the spot or expected to speak or pray aloud. Volunteers who feel comfortable doing so sign up to lead the discussion or host the evening.
What about my children?
We have several Small Groups that provide childcare. Approved childcare workers from Providence Church take care of the children in a separate room in the host home.
