A PLACE TO BELONG
No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus or what you may be going through, our Adult Small Groups provide a place for you to be yourself, develop friendships, and build your faith.
Small Groups are made up of people who enjoy being in community with one another and growing in their love for Jesus. We have a variety of Life, Bible Study, and Social Groups for you to join that meet in-person & online.
Life is better together
Our Life Groups are a place where you can come together with others to build lasting friendships and grow in your faith. They are centered around doing life together, having similar interests and incorporating a Bible study lesson when they meet.
Groups typically meet online or in person twice a month. Let us know what your comfort level is when you sign up.

Groups typically meet weekly with the guidance of a group facilitator either online or in person. You can also study solo. Let us know what your comfort level is when you sign up.

Do you love the great outdoors, the fresh smell of summer, or roasting marshmallows over an open fire? Whether you have a tent, pop-up camper, travel trailer, or fifth-wheel, SG’s camping group would love to have you join us.
About once a month, we gather at campgrounds all over Michigan. Every Saturday night we gather for a potluck dinner, sing worship songs around the bonfire and complete a short devotional.

Wednesdays at SG
As a Mom, you need to connect with other moms who are going through the same things you are—sleepless nights, toys all over the house, endless laundry. That’s why we designed Moms Connect, a small group where mothers gather to form friendships and do life together.
Meetup with us from 9:30-11:30a on:
October 13 & 27
November 10 & 24
> Gather with us for bible study, a snack breakfast, as well as, a welcoming environment.
