You weren’t meant to do life alone.
Small Groups help you connect with others who share your interests, as well as other people who are living in similar stages of life. Groups meet in homes, restaurants, parks, or other locations in our surrounding communities. Our groups meet during three semesters each year, so you have an opportunity to try various ones. You will never fully experience all that church has to offer until you connect with a small group!
What are small groups?
Small groups at Stevens Creek Church are a place where you can connect with people who share your interests, people who are in a similar stage in life or people who have expertise in an area where you would like coaching. There is a wide variety of groups offered. For those that are active, we have softball, basketball, kayaking, running, and more. Groups that focus on marriage and parenting provide coaching on important life skills. We also host groups to help those dealing with types of abuse, alcoholism, addictions, and divorce. Children and our youth meet in groups that address their needs in a way relevant to their lives. Young professionals and newlyweds can join in activities that encourage relationships grounded in Christ.
The small groups offered reflect the people of Stevens Creek Church and continue to change and develop with the interests and needs of the people.

Are you ready to
LEAD A GROUP?
Group leadership is ultimately about serving; its about using our influence to point people towards Jesus. Leaders have the privilege and responsibility of guiding others towards Jesus as we are growing closer to him in our own lives. Our goal as leaders should be able to say with confidence the words Paul spoke in 1 Corinthians 11:1 where he told the church, “And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.”
Sometimes, total life change happens in an instant, but more often it happens gradually. As small group leaders, our primary role is to uncover the spiritual condition of group members and walk beside them leading them one step closer to God. What this looks like will be different for each person. Here are some practical examples to help you:
- If a group member is not in a relationship with Christ, bring them to a church service where they can hear a clear presentation of the Gospel.
- Encourage group members to be water baptized.
- Invite group members to complete the Growth Track.
- Connect group members to the Dream Team.
- Introduce group members to the idea of daily prayer and Bible reading through the One Year Bible.
Our small groups will be most healthy when leaders take an active role in knowing each person in their group and intentionally helping them move one step closer to Christ.
