Life is better together.
We believe doing life together in community is one of the most important things we do. That is why we have Community Groups. Our Community Groups are the “life line” of our church. Community Groups are made up of 10-15 people who meet weekly to encourage, have fun together, study the Bible, and just pour into each other. We all need people in our lives to love, support, and encourage growth–and this is a perfect place for that.
Community Group Schedule
Sign-ups for fall Community Groups will begin Sunday, August 29th and will be open until Community Groups begin the week of September 12th. The fall semester will run until the week of November 14th.
If you are new to Stonehill or Community Groups, this is where you start. Starting Point is an 8 week group that dives into the Christian faith, what we believe and why Christ is worth following. It’s a great place to grow, ask questions, and build community.
Community Groups consist of a group of people who live life together, grow in their faith, and meet on a regular basis. Each group is unique and many groups have common interests or are part of a similar life stage. Whatever you are looking for, there is a place for you.
Men's Ministry Groups
These groups are a great space to connect with others as well as grow in your leadership and faith. We have an ongoing Men’s Meeting every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month at the Stonehill HQ at 8:30 am. We welcome all men to be part of this meeting time.
Women's Ministry Groups
Women's Ministry Groups: These groups are a great space to connect with others as well as grow in your leadership and faith. Women's Ministry Groups meet right now on Tuesday morning and Wednesday night during the fall Semester.
How long do groups meet for each week?
Community groups often meet for 90 minutes. There are groups that meet throughout the week and the meeting times differ between each group. Be sure to find a group that meets at a time that allows you to attend regularly.
Is childcare provided?
Childcare is provided at some community groups. This is fully dependent on the group. Whether or not a group provides childcare, can be found in the description for the group. Starting Point groups always provide childcare.
Why have semesters for community groups?
Semesters allow for natural breaks for groups. They are long enough for groups to build meaningful connections and short enough that people feel comfortable committing to a group. Semesters also make it easy to allow new people to join groups at given times.
How long are you committing to be in a group?
Community groups for 8-10 weeks twice a year. We have a winter semester that starts in January or February and a fall semester that starts in August or September. Group members can choose to stay with a group for each semester or join a different group at the beginning of a new semester.
