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! 

Highrock Cambrige Small Groups meet weekly and will carry on and continue the week of 01/10. This does not mean you cannot join throughout the year. Even if you have never attended Highrock, we invite you to jump in if a group or topic interests you.

Small Group Facilitator Training

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, though the materials can also be used by an individual outside of a formal group session. 

The next session will be offered on January 9th at 7:45pm ET. RSVP below and then take a sneak peak at the training video and guide. To find out more, contact Abby Rice at abby@highrock.org
