Small Groups

What is an adult small group?

Groups of 8 to 20 adults meeting in homes (and restaurants), offering a safe environment for spiritual seekers and growing Christ-followers to experience spiritual growth, relational support and lasting life-change!

What do small groups study?

A variety of studies are offered. Studies on prayer, character, marriage, parenting, money, leadership, and many other life issues. Recovery and support groups are available as well. Studies center on understanding biblical principles and practical ways to integrate them into daily living.

Who can attend?

Everyone! Members, attenders, Christ-followers and spiritual seekers! Most of our groups are mixed groups (open to men, women, married and single). We also have men’s groups, women’s groups, and single’s groups. Childcare is provided at most groups.

Will I feel intimidated by my lack of Bible knowledge?

Not at all! Our groups are designed to be a safe place for people who are taking steps to investigate Christianity. You can ask questions, share your opinions and experiences, or just listen as others share.

What happens in a group?

Each study addresses a relevant issue that centers on a Biblical principle. Studies are discussion-oriented rather than lecture-driven and have a practical, life-application focus.

Where do the groups meet?

We have over 80 groups meeting all over the area! Bethalto, Collinsville, Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Granite City, Greenville, Holiday Shores, Maryville, Mt. Olive, Troy, and Vandalia.

When do the groups meet?

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings with some groups meeting during the day.

Why should I attend an adult small group?

We were designed by God to live in relationship with others. Positive life-change happens best when we are surrounded by friends who support, encourage and challenge us. Small groups will help you feel like you belong in the Metro family.

How can I get involved?

We offer Fall, Spring, and Summer trimester Small Groups. There is a month long sign-up period before each Small Group trimester begins. Sign-ups are online or at either of our campus locations.
