Groups

Real life change happens in relationship.

Groups at GSC

Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

FALL SEMESTER BEGINS SEPTEMBER 15

Leading a Group

Leading a group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your group successful through Leadership Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a group leader you get to play an important role in that process.

I'm interested in a group!

If you are interested in any of the groups below, let us know here. We'll pass your info along to the group leader.
