Small Groups...

Small groups are key to developing deep and meaningful relationships, experiencing vibrant Christian community and thus moving forward in the spiritual journey. At Open Door, we provide two types of small groups to help you connect.


Life Groups are small groups who get together regularly for a couple of hours to encourage each other along the spiritual journey. We hang out, share a meal or just a cup of coffee and dessert as we get to know each other and learn about following Jesus. We’ll do a Bible study or a Bible-based book study, pray for each other and even put our faith in action by serving others. Most Life Groups meet on Sunday evenings, but some meet at other times.  


Bible Study Groups are small groups that focus their attention on doing Bible study together, but always with practical and relevant application. These groups meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.  


To make it easy to connect, we provide open group sign-ups twice during the year: January and August-September. Most groups are open to new folks at any time, but during the semester you may wish to contact the group leader for more info. 


Winter Groups will begin Sunday, January 14. So we encourage you to find a Bible Study or ongoing Life Group, gather with friends or reach out to make new ones. Below is the list of the current Winter 2018 Groups. Registration closes January 21.
