“Over the last year or so, I’ve been a part of a small group directed towards young adults at E-Free. This has been my first experience with being in a group and it’s something I’ve really come to love and appreciate. We talk about our lives, share job struggles, have game nights, do fun activities (like ice skating or trying new restaurants), and hunt down service opportunities together. For me, it’s been invaluable to just have a group of people I can share my life with. It’s been a great experience!”

Different Types of Groups

Community Groups typically meet weekly, September through May. Their mission is to help group members grow in faith, serve God, and reach out to others. The gathering time may begin with ice-breakers to help group members get to know each other, then discussion and prayer time. Many Community Groups plan social activities and serve as a group together.

Topical and Interest Groups provide an option for those who have common interests. Examples include health, fitness, Bible studies, or accountability groups.

First Step Groups: Designed for those interested in getting connected to a group, First Step Groups provide an opportunity to try out a group. Open sign-ups occur each Fall to form these short-term groups, which meet on Sunday mornings.

Small Groups FAQ

How important is it to be part of a group at E-Free Church?

Groups are the next step we encourage you to take if you consider EFC your church home.  We believe groups provide a powerful opportunity for spiritual growth as people share life together, reflect on God's Word, and serve others.

When and where do groups meet?

Groups are available several evenings during the week, with some during the day as well. Most groups meet in homes, while some meet in restaurants, coffee shops, or at the church. Group gatherings usually last about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

How much commitment is expected?

Once you have joined a group, we ask that you make your group meeting time a priority and commit for the fall and spring semester. Attending regularly will help you build stronger connections to your fellow group members. 

When trying out a new group, please attend for three weeks before deciding if the group is a good fit. If not, we encourage you to try out a different group. Group Sign-Ups are offered in September and January, but you can join a group at any time!
