Why Join a Small Group?

We were created for community.

It's one thing to see people every Sunday, or even hang out during the week, but when people gather to intentionally study God's Word together, true friendships are built.

Small Groups are how we establish community at NEO Church. If you want to get plugged into a body of believers, make new friends, or simply grow closer to God, Small Groups are for you.

Non-threatening, social, and focused.
When you attend, you can be assured that the home you enter will be warm and inviting. The leader will be well prepared, giving your group discussion opportunities and helping you to understand what the Scripture is saying. All of this is so that you come away knowing more of God and His Word.

Feel free to bring a friend, or request to join a group that's already taking place. We're okay with that! Small groups turn Spring, Fall and Summer. The longest semester is about 12 weeks long, so even if you missed the chance to join one round of groups, it won’t be long before you have the chance to be part of a new one. There are a wide selection of groups, those specific to gender, co-ed, married couples, topics, or special interests. Whatever the type of group you choose to participate in, you can be sure its primary focus will be on sharing biblical truth and wisdom while building community with other believers.
