At Emmanuel, we believe real life-change begins to happen when we decide to move out of a row on the weekend and into a circle with others. Group environments consist of meeting with a smaller group of people to discuss how to practically live out our faith. If you're not connected to a circle, check out the steps below to learn more about groups and connect we with others.

Starting Point

Starting Point is a conversational environment to explore faith and experience community. It's a safe place to ask questions and learn about the Bible and Christianity.

Starting Point is a a four week discussion series that takes place during our 11:15am service at your local Emmanuel Campus.

Starting Point is designed for:

  • Those who are curious about God, Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity.
  • Those who have just begun a relationship with Jesus Christ. 
  • Those who have some church experience, but have been away for a while.

Small Groups

If you're not yet connected with a small group, we have a Small Group Launch to help you get there. At the Small Group Launch, you can connect with others, discuss how to practically apply the message given during the weekend service, and learn what Emmanuel's Small Groups are all about.  

Each Small Group Launch lasts four weeks and is at each of our Emmanuel campuses on Sunday or Thursday evening from 6:30-8pm (free childcare provided).

Short-Term Groups

Short-Term Groups are designed to help you move from a seat in a row on the weekend into a circle with others. You'll have the opportunity to discuss a specific topic - relationships, spiritual life, money, or decision-making - using Biblical principles to guide conversations. You'll also learn why it is so important to be in a community at Emmanuel.

Short-Term Groups are typically four to six weeks long and are at each of our Emmanuel campuses on Thursdays from 6:30-8pm (free childcare provided).
