What Is A Small Group?

A group of Christians committed to glorifying God together through word and action. In other words, a small group learns to love God and love people together in everyday life. Each group meets weekly in a variety of locations i.e. Café’s, homes, restaurants, or parks. A  small group seeks to develop three types of relationships together:

UP is the connection we have with God.  
Examples: Bible study, prayer, spiritual disciplines, giving, and corporate worship.

trial in logo


IN is the connection we have with other Christians.
Examples: communion, service, meals, and recreation.
Be creative. Be together.

trial out logo


OUT is the connection we have with the world, including unbelievers.  
Examples: barbeques or block parties, serving at a local school, or visiting a nursing home.


Putting it all together…

Our Small Groups seek to develop all three of these relationships together. We believe that a person grows best in a community, where he or she learns to love others, encourage others, and serve others.

If you are interested in visiting a small group, please fill out the contact form below and we'll get in touch with you.

Beginning the week of January 9th, Judson small groups will be doing a 10-week study on the book of James. This study will coincide with the Sunday sermon series.
