Small Groups

Experiencing the love of God through life giving relationships

Getting Connected

The Christian life was never meant to be lived alone. We believe that God created us to live in relationship with one another, constantly building each other up and encouraging one another. Small groups are the mechanism that we use to connect people to those life giving relationships at Valley Rise Church. Connecting with like minded people has never been easier!

FAQ

Small groups at Valley Rise Church take on many different forms! We have groups for every interest, and if we don’t have it, you can create it! A small group is simply a group of people getting together to share common interests, encourage each other, and pray for one another.

We have three small group semesters throughout the year: Spring, Fall, and Summer. Most groups meet once a week for the entire semester, but your group can decide to meet however and whenever they want to! If there’s a group you want to get involved in, but you’re not sure if you can meet with them every time, join anyway! It’s worth it for the lifelong relationships that you’re going to build!

Where the small groups meet is completely up to the group! Your small group might be at someone’s house, at a favorite restaurant, or even at a community park. Every small group is different, so be sure to check the group sign up page for the specific location.

The more relationships the better! If you have time to be in more than one small group in the same semester, we highly encourage it. If you feel like that would be taking on too much, you can always change groups in between semesters! We also know that not every life group is a great fit, so you can always switch groups in the middle of a semester if you need to. At Valley Rise, the most important thing to us is that you’re jumping in and building those life giving relationships!

Every small group is different, and some groups provide child care while others don’t. Be sure to check out the small group page when you’re signing up to see if child care is provided for that particular group.
