Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Small Group?


Small Groups are groups of fifteen to twenty people from STCOC that meet to learn more about the Bible, have a lesson, grow in their faith and develop deeper relationships with God and each other. These meetings are usually held in people's homes and include a fun group activity and service project planned throughout the semester.




What happens when I sign up?


When you sign up, the leader of your Small Group will contact you with the address of the meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.




When will my group meet?


Small Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is sixty to ninety minutes long. Groups meet for eight to ten weeks over the semester. Typically there are Winter, Spring, and Fall Small Groups. It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term.
