FIND FREEDOM | JOIN A GROUP

In times of need and times of fun, Freedom Church small groups are your source of relationships, community and they are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Groups meet throughout the year in three semesters; Spring, Summer, and Fall. They also meet in a variety of places including homes, coffee shops, restaurants, offices and some even meet at the church.

Summer semester group registrations will begin in May so check back in then to get registered. For questions about groups, email smallgroups@freedomchurch.sc

Brotherhood & Sisterhood

 

During our Spring and Fall Semester we host our Brotherhood and Sisterhood groups. These are groups that meet as a large gathering and then break into table groups for further discussion. These groups are great next steps for connecting if you are new to the church. 

Brotherhood and Sisterhood will resume in September. 

Would You Like to Lead a Group?

 

Have you ever thought about leading a Small Group? Don't worry, you don't have to have it all together - you just have to be willing to let God use you. If you’re interested in hearing more about what it would look like to lead, join us for Small Group Leader Interest Meeting. There are two upcoming opportunities to attend, you can register below. We believe God uses Small Groups to change people’s lives, and as a leader, you get to be a part of that.

Common Small Group Questions

 

1. 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.

 

2. HOW OFTEN DOES A SMALL GROUP MEET?

Some small groups meet for three semesters a year and some meet year round based on the schedule needs of its members—winter/spring, summer, and fall. During the semesters, most groups meet once a week. 

 

3. 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. Freedom Church small groups happen throughout Berkeley  and Dorchester Counties currently.

 

4. IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?

Childcare varies from group to group. Our coordinator and listing can let you know about available childcare. Our Monday night groups all offer Freedom Care, and you may utilize it by dropping off your children at Freedom beginning at 5:30 pm and all children must be picked up by 8:30pm. All children must be registered to attend. More information and registration located here!

 

5. WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. We like to call it speed dating groups! The simple strategy to finding success in small groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
