Small Groups

Our small groups are a time for individuals to grow in the knowledge of God, build each other up in Christ and draw new believers and non-Christians in to learn more about Him. We believe that small groups are an essential part of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship because they provide an opportunity for us to be transformed in the image of God: to grow deeper in our relationship with Him and with each other through honesty, accountability and vulnerability.



Open, safe groups that are focused on investigating the questions: Does God exist? Who is God? and Why does this matter to me? These groups are designed to be for those who do not believe in God to explore who God is in an open, non-pressuring environment. The groups have a specific length, approximately 7 weeks of study of various topics meant to cause a greater understanding of who God is to begin to develop.

Are you looking to connect with literature-lovers like yourself? Do you have questions about Jesus, the purpose of your life, or God’s love? This small group is a close-knit environment where you can bring questions like these while developing relationships with fellow book-lovers. We use our literary skills to analyze the story of Jesus in the Bible. You don’t need to be a Christian. Simply bring yourself and your curiosity!
