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!

Even if you have never attended Highrock, jump in and join a Small Group! Or, if you already have a few people in mind, use our free study materials to start your own group.

Sermon Discussion Groups

For each sermon series, Highrock develops a series companion—as well as study guides for books of the Bible—to help you dive deeper. Use our series companions and study guides individually or in a Small Group with your congregation to enrich your study of Scripture.

The current sermon series, Warning Signs: Lesson So We Don't Lose Our Way (Lent 2023) explores the Gospel of Mark and follows Jesus' journey to the cross.

We have also developed a Lent Devotional that focuses on prayers of solidarity. We invite you to try it this Lent!

If you'd like to join an online Small Group, Abby Rice will lead a six-week Small Group on Thursday Nights from 7:30-8:30pm ET beginning March 2nd. 


Small Group Facilitator Orientation

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