Small Groups

What is a Small Group?

A Small Group is a co-learning community where you can examine your experiences, perceptions, and big questions about life and following Jesus. Participants in these groups commit to meet consistently to study a topic of common interest, a sermon series, or a spiritual practice. The setting is ideal for going deep—in relationship and content—as you wrestle with hard truths and expand your understanding of God and the world.  

Jump In!

Even if you have never attended Highrock, jump in and join a Small Group! Or, if you already have a few people in mind, use our free study materials to start your own group.

Sermon Discussion Groups

For each sermon series, Highrock develops a series companion—as well as study guides for books of the Bible—to help you dive deeper. Use our series companions and study guides individually or in a Small Group with your congregation to enrich your study of Scripture.

Centered: Moving Towards What Matters Most

Are you in or out? This is a question that has come to define many communities, especially spiritual ones. Do you believe the right things, say the right things, act the right way? If so, you can join. If not, you're out. But what if there were a different way? A way that puts life with Jesus at the center, and invites everyone to move towards that life together, regardless of difference? We want to be a community like that at Highrock. As we end the summer, we'll look at the six Affirmations from our denomination, the Covenant Church, that shape the center of our church and invite all of us to transformation and relationship. We hope you'll join!

Follow along with the sermons and find discussion questions to use with your small group in our Centered Series Companion (found on Highrockonline.org).

 

Lead or Join a Small Group

Small Groups with openings typically welcome new members at the start of a season, sermon series, or book study. To find out about small group openings or to inquire about leading one, contact the leader of a community group in which you're interested.

 

Small Group Facilitator Orientation

Considering leading a Small Group? Maybe you are rearing to go, or maybe you feel called to lead, but ill-equipped to do so. Present and future facilitators are invited to attend a Virtual Small Group Facilitator Orientation where you will learn that leading it isn’t about having the right answers but rather about having a posture of listening and curiosity. Group dynamics, expectations, and navigating difficult situations will be covered too! 

This orientation is given over Zoom a few times during the year, although the materials can also be used by an individual outside of a formal group session.
