Home Groups

Faith group gatherings are now possible provided social distancing can take place. This allows home group ministry in person! As we encourage resumption of home group ministries, home group leaders will prayerfully and wisely make plans while considering the safety of those more vulnerable. Contact your home group leader for more details. If you would like help finding a home group, please contact us.

A new command I give you: Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:34

Home groups provide genuine opportunities for connecting with others. We pray and learn together, study the Bible together, have fun together, and serve together.

Each group is different. Some have formed studies because they share a “place-in-life” status. Others are a mix of ages, marital status, etc. Some meet for a short season and others meet for several years.

Finding a Home Group

People often visit a few different home groups before they settle in. You’ll find the current list of home groups that meet throughout Beaverton and Washington County here. You can use the Request Info link to let the group leader know you’re coming to visit.

What to Expect at a Home Group

Where and when do home groups meet?

Church members host and lead small-group studies in homes throughout Beaverton, Tigard, and the Portland Metro Area. A handful of groups also meet at the church. See the list of available groups for information about the location, dates, times, and childcare availability.

What do the groups study?

Some group leaders decide to follow the Sunday message. Others go through a book of the Bible or a study book. Ask the group leader for more information.

I haven’t studied the Bible much at all. Is that OK?

Come and visit—whether you just opened the Bible or you’ve been reading the Bible for years. Attend a home group and find the right mix of people. You might also attend the Essential Christianity Sunday Class that Senior Pastor Scott Gilchrist teaches Sunday mornings.

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. Colossians 1:28-29
