Small Groups & COVID - 19
We encourage our existing small groups to continue to meet in virtual formats through this season of COVID - 19. Find a format that works for your group. Google Hangout, Skype, Zoom, conference calling and other platforms are free and easily available to you. In Phase 3 we are also able to gather in groups at the church with masking and social distancing. If your group would like to reserve a space (one time or recurring) to meet at the church contact [email protected].
Look for new groups starting in September!

WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
A Small Group is 3-12 people who meet regularly to learn more about Jesus, share life together, pray and serve. Our small group ministry exists to create authentic Christian community. Mercer Creek groups are designed to meet five specific needs:
- A place to live out the one another commands. (John 13:34-35)
- A place to give and recieve. (Romans 12:3-8)
- A place to grow. (Matthew 22:38-39)
- A place to encounter God. (Genesis 1:27)
- A place to succeed together where one alone would fail. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
What type of Group?
We have men's, women's, couples, and mixed groups. We hope every person at Mercer Creek will be a part of a group. You decide which type of group is the best fit for you.

Lead or Host a Group
Feeling lost in the crowd? The quickest way to join a small group is to lead or host one. How? We will give you some brief training to get you going. Then just grab a few friends or couples that you already know. Have them invite a few people they know, pick a time, and start meeting. We can provide curriculum, prayer and all the support you need. Leading a group is simpler than most people imagine!
We desire every person at Mercer Creek to participate in a small group. To make that happen we need more group leaders. Interested? Have questions? Download the leader orientation packet HERE and watch the three leader orientation videos below. Once you have completed the packet and watched the videos, get started by filling out THIS FORM. Contact our Small Group Director Kerry Hansberry for more information.
