During the Covid-19 pandemic, our small groups are meeting online solely by Zoom.

Small Groups

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. -- Hebrews 10: 24-25

At St. John’s we believe that spiritual growth happens most naturally in small groups. They are a place where we pray and encourage one another in the faith, study the word of God, and find renewed strength for Jesus’ mission. Small groups are committed to: 


  • Pursuing personal spiritual growth 

  • Growing in knowledge and application of the Word 

  • Providing mutual support and accountability 

  • Encouraging one another to share our faith in word and deed outside the church 


There are small groups for every situation: 


  • St. John’s 10 small groups 

  • Groups meet at different times and places: days, nights, weekdays, weekends, on campus, at homes, at other locations 

  • We have groups for families, empty nesters, college age, men only, women only, mixed, and mature adults

  • Small groups have something to offer for seekers, new believers, and mature believers alike  

What's a Small Group?

Small groups... 

  • Consist of 4 - 12 people. 

  • Meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, at a home, on campus, or at another location. 

  • Study lessons that align with the current sermon series. 

  • Have a leader committed to the overall care of the group, handling logistics and taking on spiritual responsibility for the health and growth of their group. 

  • Meet during three ~10-week “quarters” during the year.​

Begin your spiritual growth today with a small group near you. Be connected. Be a Witness.

Winter 2021

January 2021 - Present

This winter and spring Pastor Steve will be taking us through the fourth gospel of the Bible, identified as the testimony of “the beloved disciple.”  Tradition, as well as internal evidence, point to John the son of Zebedee, the disciple of Jesus, as that primary witness.  Clement of Alexandria writes, “Last of all, John perceiving that the bodily facts had been made plain in the [previous gospels], being urged by his friends, composed a spiritual gospel.”  Irenaeus, the pupil of Polycarp, the pupil of John the apostle, goes on to say that John’s gospel was published in Ephesus.  It seems that as John the apostle was growing older, his friends in Ephesus urged him to compose his gospel and may have helped by putting pen to paper.  This would explain why he is referred to in the third person as “the disciple whom Jesus loved”.
