Small Groups are the life of our church and the key to our growth as individuals. Small Groups meet weekly Monday-Friday throughout the greater Seattle area. Each group meets for about two hours. We know people are busy, so our groups make sure to start and end on time.
The Small Group gathering usually begins with a light snack and socializing, followed by a discussion focused on life application of the Bible. If you’re visiting a Small Group, you can participate in the discussion as much or as little as you’d like. Groups end the evening by taking some time to pray for one another.
Finding The Right Group
Here's what we've found works best for most people:
- If you've come to Blue Sky with a friend and they already attend a group, ask if you can visit their group with them. If the group’s location or demographic doesn’t work well for you, see if your friend can help you find a group that works better.
- Visit a Discipleship Community on the night that works best for your schedule. Discipleship Communities are made up of a collection of groups that meet on a given night of the week. More information is listed below, and you can visit the calendar to see the next Discipleship Community week.
- Feel free to try out a few different groups to find one that feels like it might be a good fit. You can take a look at our Small Group board on Sundays, or check out Small Groups on our website to see all of the current groups.
If you’re visiting for the first time, it is best to contact the group leader to verify where the group will be meeting that week.
What is Discipleship Community?
A Discipleship Community (DC) is a mid-sized gathering of all the Small Groups that meet on a given night of the week—typically the first full week of the month, from 7:00-8:30 pm. It gives people the chance to connect and build relationships with people outside of their Small Group in a way that can be more difficult to do in the midst of larger gathering of people attending Sunday services. You do not already need to be a part of a Small Group in order to attend a Discipleship Community, and it is a great way to meet people in the Small Group(s) you might be interested in visiting.
Discipleship Communities meet at Blue Sky for Bible teaching, worship, prayer, sharing the Lord's Supper, and connecting with friends. A pastor will kick off the monthly small group topic by teaching on a Bible text related to the topic our Small Groups will be discussing for the rest of the month.
