What is a Small Group?

Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Where do Small Groups meet?

Small groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Small groups happen throughout the Nashville area.

What happens at a Small Group meeting?

You’ve probably seen Small Groups meeting and not even realized it. A Small Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Small Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in Small Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation, and request prayer.

How do I join a Small Group?

Joining a Small Group is simple! Use the list above to find a group that interests you. Click the SIGN UP button to connect with the group leader to ask questions, get more information, or join the group. The group leader will then reach out to you. It’s easy to get connected here at Music City Church, and we can’t wait for you to find your group and share life through community!
