At SBC, we think it’s important for people to get real with one another by being part of a smaller community within the larger congregation. Small groups of 8-15 people meet regularly (weekly or bi-weekly) to build relationships with each other and explore together how to apply the gospel to their lives. In a small group, you’ll be in a community where you can build Christ-centered friendships for encouragement and support, and where you can grow in your relationship with Jesus through Bible conversations, prayer, serving together, and enjoying life together! We support more than 200 small group communities that meet all over the Valley on virtually every day of the week, representing singles, couples, and mixed groups of all adult life stages.
We launch dozens of new groups every year, too. The best way for you to connect at SBC is by coming to Starting Point, offered several times each year. Starting Point is a 3-week, on-campus experience (75 minutes each week), where you discover how to get God, get real, and “get out there” at SBC. Starting Point not only orients you to life at SBC, but it also introduces you to our group life, too. At the Starting Point Kickoff, you’ll meet friendly table leaders who will lead you through Starting Point, and potentially be your first Small Group leaders, too. You’ll also connect with others who are new to church, or to faith, or even to the area, and will be going through Starting Point with you. Learn more and sign up for Starting Point here.
If you have already gone through Starting Point or are looking for an existing group to join, we have a limited number of established groups that are open for new participants. To view these groups, click on ‘Find a Group‘ where you can view groups based on campus, night of the week and demographics. If you’re interested in one of these groups, fill out the contact form or contact the SBC Groups team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480.824.7299.
