Small Groups are a great way to connect. Our groups are spread throughout the Chattanooga area. Chances are, there will be one close to you. We usually run them in semesters, so if it’s close to a holiday or vacation season, some of these may not be meeting every week. If you have questions, just email the group’s leader. Browse the list below, then sign up online for Small Groups!

Drawing on the heritage of the Vineyard movement, this course studies the historical, scriptural, and theological basis for prayer and power evangelism. More than knowledge, though, this class is designed to encourage attendees to “Do the stuff” that Jesus did, take risks for the Kingdom, and see what God can do when the extraordinary meets the everyday.
